What do you do in your free time?

We love to travel, now that we are empty nesters we love taking advantage of quick weekend getaways or planning vacations where we can immerse ourselves in  the local community.

What was your favorite subject in school and why?

Without a doubt Government was my favorite subject in high school  and I would say Social Studies in elementary. I love studying  history, historical events and all things politics.
