Jeff and Missy

We knew each other in high school but Jeff was a ladies-man and I was a good girl that would not go out with him.

After I turned 21 and found my wild side, I met Jeff again in a bar. At the end of the night, Jeff told his Dad that he was going to marry me. Six months later we were married; that was 25 years ago. If you want to read the Our Complete Story click here.


Jeff enjoys NASCAR, fishing, camping, and hiking. He is a foodie! Jeff has been known to take our family out-of-the-way to visit a restaurant that he has seen on TV. Helping people in the campsites that we visit and spending time with our family is what brings Jeff fulfillment. At the end of the day, Jeff can be found hanging out around a campfire relaxing with his family.

I enjoy reading historical fiction, baking, and blogging about everything related to my family. Encouraging others to get out their front door and explore the world around them is something that brings me joy. Beside my relationship with God, my family is the most important thing to me.  If you want to know more about me, you can find my page by clicking here.
