TOES IN THE WATER… ASS IN THE SAND

By | October 29th, 2017|Family|

This year Slipper and I celebrate our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary and so we want to go somewhere totally different than our daily experience of mountain life to just rest, relax and rejoice in our celebration. We initially planned to revisit St. John (our Honeymoon Destination), but after the devastation from the 2017 Hurricanes, we [...]

RIDE… RIDE… RIDE… LET IT RIDE

By | September 29th, 2017|Family|

When we landed back in Atlanta (after our 6 month and 4 day thru-hike of The Appalachian Trail), Slipper and I suddenly find ourselves immerced in work again (this time with a significant promotion and increased responsibility). While flattering to be courted by several companies, we both knew that our Gold Sponsor: Berkshire Hathaway Home [...]

A GARDEN VIEW

By | June 18th, 2017|Family|

Slipper and I love being outside, and if we only have a short amount of time, we enjoy working in the yard and creating something new. For Father's Day I created a Rock Garden in our front yard to give us A GARDEN VIEW. Pull up a rocking chair on the front porch and enjoy [...]

A MOUNTAIN FAMILY

Slipper and I are happy and honored to have Slipper's Sister (Cheryl) and Brother-In-Love (Marshall) as A MOUNTAIN FAMILY in our home town! We had the joy of representing them in the purchase of their mountain home at the highest elevation of The First Mountain City of Jasper, GA. After a short while in the [...]

GIVE THANKS

By | November 28th, 2016|Family|

While it is true that we are to GIVE THANKS in all things, this year is special because Slipper's sister has just retired from working 40 years as a nurse. This Thanksgiving Day, Slipper and I travel up to Asheville, North Carolina to share in the celebration of Cheryl's retirement and GIVE THANKS for family. [...]

FOOT THERAPY

By | October 25th, 2016|Family|

Who doesn't like the ocean? While we were on the trail, family decided it would be a great thing to book a place in Florida for a Thru-Hike Celebration (rather than attempt to meet us in Maine after our Mount Katahdin summit). Great call! The ocean along Rosemary Beach is absolutely beautiful and the weather [...]

IT’S WHAT WE DO

By | October 15th, 2016|Family|

Let's be honest... not ALL tradition is necessary to hold onto, but some tradition should be embraced and continued because of its legacy... its memory... its joy... its fulfillment... and because IT'S WHAT WE DO! This season each year our children and grandchildren come up to the mountains for the day and we visit Burt's [...]
