|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We are always doing something! We are big foodies, and always strive to buy local. We love animals. We both love to play disc golf, fish, kayak, and try new restaurants on a regular basis. We both grew up playing soccer and, once this pandemic passes, we hope to get back into playing and coaching. Mike has played the guitar for several years and Victoria likes to paint and used to be involved in acting. We both like to volunteer. Victoria rescues animals with Birds in Helping Hands, and Mike is involved with Habitat for Humanity.
We are Christians that strongly believe Christ is the way, the truth, and life. We practice our faith actively and enjoy being in small groups and reading our Bible together. We pray nightly as a family and attend church every Sunday, and strive to always live in a Godly manner.
|Our Musical Interest|
We share many common musical interests like Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash, and the Beachboys, older country, and classic rock. Tori is all about her Dixie Chicks and Mike loves Led Zeppelin. We also really enjoy Christian rock/worship songs, especially on Sundays.
|About Our Home|
We live in a one-story 3 bedroom, two baths 1200sq/ft home. We own 1/4 acre of land a few miles from downtown St. Pete. We have an eclectic modern theme throughout the house with many pictures of our family throughout. We have a fenced-in backyard with a pool/spa. We also have a fenced-off area for our chickens that provide us with fresh eggs everyday! Our home was just recently updated with all the most recent efficiencies and updates to provide a safe reliable home for years to come. We have tomato plants in the backyard, lime trees, mango trees, and hopefully much more as we extend our garden.
We love animals in this house! We have three dogs, a kitten, and a couple of chickens and a duck. Everyone is a rescue from a different situation. Most recently we adopted Daisey Duck. She was raised as a domestic duck and then dropped off in a park with no understanding of how to be a wild duck. Through Victoria's rescue, we were asked if we could take her in- and now she is part of the family!
We have three dogs! Dewey, Oakley, and Cash. We love taking them all kinds of places with us. We have been to many parks together and lots of hiking. Oakley especially loves to kayak, even though she tends to sink the kayak a bit on a choppy day! Cash is a pup so it is so fun watching him learn. We love giving him different vegetables and watching him try to understand these "foreign objects on the ground". Dewey is our old girl of 13 years old but still acts like a puppy. All of our dogs have been around kiddos and absolutely love them!
|We live in the state of...|
Where we live is surrounded by young families and children which are often found out and about in the evenings taking walks or playing in the field next to our home.
