We’ve been married for almost 25 years and have been very blessed with two sons, Matthew (19) and Tyler (22) and finally a daughter(in-law), Cassidy!  She and Tyler were married January 1, 2016 and she has been the perfect addition to our family.  Matthew went the trade-school route after high-school and he now works for Pike Electric as a lineman.

That left Mac & I as newly empty-nesters and I needed something to occupy my time.  So, I decided to start this blog; mainly to help me put thoughts and pictures all in one place, but to also share with others.

I work full-time for a Member of Congress, but my passion is travel and last summer I was finally able to become a home-based part time travel advisor with Imagine Going There Travel. Cruising is our favorite way to travel, but Germany and Hawaii hold a special place in our hearts.  I love assisting families and couples turn their travel imaginations into reality!

In the Travel section you’ll find the places we’ve been or want to go. In the Blog section, you’ll find thoughts on family or current happenings and brag posts on kids.  If you like what you see, please feel free to follow us.  We’d love to hear from you!

Remember, life is too short – go make memories.
