We are best friends and truly enjoy doing everything together.

We welcomed our son Ian in 2017 and he has blessed our lives in so many ways.
For fun we love to go to the beach, go out on our canoe, travel, get together with friends and play and see live music at many family friendly restaurants in our beach town!
