|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We love traveling, boating, playing with our dogs, going to the beach, trying new restaurants, and supporting our community! We also enjoy taking the occasional day to just relax at home, cook meals together, and watch our favorite movies. Daniel is a wonderful cook, and we enjoy entertaining our family and friends in our home. We also love attending operas and plays!
Our relationship with God is very personal to us, and we believe that He sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross and rise again to save us from sin and death. The values of love, kindness, generosity, and obedience to God's will are deeply rooted in everything we do. He is at the center of our life, and we seek to honor Him in every aspect of our lives.
|Our Musical Interest|
We enjoy a wide variety of music. Daniel has done a lot of amateur theater, so we love musicals and operas! We also love jazz, classical music, country, and even classic rock n' roll!
|About Our Home|
The best thing about our home? We live at the beach! Our three-story, three-bedroom home has an open kitchen-living-dining room with two-story ceilings and a large window that faces the ocean. The upstairs is big loft that features a balcony that has the BEST sunsets overlooking the sound! We walk or bike to the beach almost every day! We also have a large fenced backyard where our dogs love to play in the sand and bask in the sun.
