I have called many places home including Chicago, Iowa City, Columbus, Cleveland, Albany, Boston, Annapolis, and now Beaufort, SC.
We love the water, and spend a great deal of time in and around the many rivers, beaches, and islands of the Low Country. Reading, history, cooking, dining, walking with my labs, volunteering, train riding, and traveling are all passions of mine.
One of my favorite places to visit is Germany where I lived for awhile. It's such a beautiful and diverse country. Salzburg, Austria is also on my best list. I will never forget sleeping with the windows open, under the fluffiest down comforter, and listening to all the church bells chime in unison. Also being able to see the actual places that they filmed in the movie Sound of Music, was remarkable.
