All the great things are simple,
and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
- Winston Churchill
We left the sunny South over 16 years ago to experience life in Central Minnesota. For the most part life here has been good for us. We keep busy with our various endeavors (mostly work and school) and find time for fun as well. We have embraced the cold (occasionally brutal) winters and are always grateful when the mild summers occur. We tend to travel a lot for work and play but we are always happy to return home to Minnesota. Our most recent four-legged companion is Bella, an English Springer Spaniel rescue that we adopted at age 6. She is very loving and frequently provides comic relief for us.
And our family is growing! There was a wedding on September 2, 2017 when Steve Christensen became a member of our family. It was a picture-perfect day and love was in the air!
