I have lived here in Western Carolina for the longest I've lived anywhere. Having been raised overseas in Germany by my teacher parents, I figure living in the mountains of Carolina closest to the rivers and mountains I have inside my body already.
Now that I have followed my family heritage into the field of teaching, I believe having the balanced life of activities that are learning centered and fun centered critical for my journey of life.
Being a part time dad each week allows for my life to strike a balance with hanging out with my son and finding time for my single life pursuits. This has been pretty nice even though I do miss being with my boy.
I like spending time outdoors exploring the trails of the mountains and the culture of the surrounding towns and villages. Hanging out in a tea or coffee shop sounds great to me.
