About Us

We are Chuck and Lori.  We're both 48 and have been married 28 years.  Your math is correct: we married at 20.  Being from the deep south, that's not so unusual.  That we're still happily and joyfully married after more than a quarter of a century, however, certainly does seem unusual.

During that quarter-century-plus we've experienced a great deal of life.  We finished college, and both (eventually) went on to earn Master's degrees.  We've seen our two wonderful children grow into adults, move out, and start building their own lives.  We've built houses and we've built companies.  We've been diving and skiing and have seen a good bit of Europe.  Three of our four parents have passed away.  We've developed a passion for wine and learned to make a pretty good English ale.  And lately we've been learning two things we've put off for too long: ballroom dancing and Spanish.

You can read our first blog to understand what this blog is about.  While we've achieved more than many in our lifetime, we still have lots of things we want to experience and there are lots of people in the world we still haven't met.  And though we've been together for so long already, we want to do even more together in the future, which is, we think, the key to having been together for so long to begin with.
