About Me?




I'm a mish-mash of 21 years of being a Marine Corps spouse and dealing with seventeen moves, dozens of school transfers, numerous career opportunities coming and going, and hundreds of good friends, good times, and memories which will last a lifetime.  My ambidextrous brain has taken me to the point where I am self-employed in two vastly different ventures:  I am a CPA and a Photographer.  I can itemize deductions like a madwoman, then fly out the door in time to catch just the right light of sunset at the beach. 


I love my family, photography, a good workout, and time alone (which I rarely have). I hate cooking, mornings, and drama.


The Hubster


Spent twenty-one years in the Marine Corps, and twenty-five years married to me. You would think that gives me some sort of priority, wouldn't you? He recently retired and is settling into the wackiness that is Civilian Life.  Loves the ocean, surfing, and fishing. Wicked sense of humor.  Brilliant, but hides it well sometimes.

Twenty-four y/o, has been known to make boys cry with her blunt comments. Recent college graduate and Parks and Rec employee.  Loves hiking, kayaking, and hanging at the beach with her friends. Her ideal day involves yoga, organic spinach, and having someone cater to her every whim.  


The Blonde One

Once a sweet little boy, now a 22 y/o chick magnet.  Did a 180 degree turn when he went from scatterbrained, irresponsible high school student to focused, determined college student and lifeguard.  Just earned his undergrad degree and plans to go to medical school after a gap year (or two).  Loves body surfing, skateboarding, and playing the guitar.    


The Wildcard

The kid who never shuts down.  Loves swimming, drawing, and playing the drums. Recent high school graduate, looking forward to all that college has to offer (/sarcasm). Working as a lifeguard, attending college, and planning to be a neurologist some day.

Perpetual motion, inside and out (like most 9 y/o boys). The smartypants baby of the family, loves being doted on by his siblings.  Sometimes forgets that he is MUCH younger than the rest of them.  Loves video games, canoeing, and the beach.  Recently joined a swim team where he plans to kick ass (my words, not his).
