My great grandmother made all our stockings in my family. It's something very special from Christmas past. They all have their special spot at my mom's and dad's either on the mantel or staircase. My sister Ashley has fun mixing things up each year when decorating, and we all enjoy how she makes it look. I just spoke with my grandmother "Grandmama" over the phone last night - we laughed about times past and thought about the future. She's 98, and we know statistically she doesn't have much time with us. We discussed how we cherish the moments and times past. I'm glad I have these special pieces like the stockings - the gifts of love - the stuff that's priceless. I look forward to seeing my Grandmama soon, and having a nice cup of English tea together. I'm cherishing the moments past and looking forward to the future as I say goodbye to this year and hello to the new one.
Public Service is our life's passion. How fitting that we would meet working in public service. We are two dreamers who have many dreams, the one most important, that all others are built around is that we use our time well. Our time on this earth as long as God has us here - doing what we can to help others. We learned early the joys of cooking and entertaining. Many memories and important events occur over food and wine. Some of our fondest moments and what we look forward to most is being at home with each other Bo and Tess prepping a meal together while enjoying a glass of wine as music plays softly in the back ground. And we most enjoy being able to have family and friends over to join in the fun.
