I was born & raised in the small town of Enumclaw, WA, set in the foothills of Mt. Rainier. I've lived in Georgia for the past 20+ years so I'm officially half-southern. I love southern cooking, especially my Mother-in-Law's fried chicken and okra! I married a GRITS...girl raised in the south! She is the most beautiful women I've ever known and she made my life a blessing when she said "yes"! We have two teenage boys that keep me on my toes every day and I love it! Oh yes, can't forget about our furry kids...Thunder, the Golden Retriever and Rosie the not-so-right-in-the -head cat.
