I extend my sincerest apologies to me few readers in this digital space. I have been adjusting to my new position as Personalized Learning coach… aka running around like a chicken with its head cut off.

Don't rush things



Nice, France

Why is there so much hate in the world? last night, I heard about the terror attack in Nice, France and it has completely broken my heart. This is the third attack in France in 18 months. From the armed gunman attacking Charlie Hebdo, to the Bataclan Theatre, and now a man in a simple lorry truck; these attacks must stop. CnXKBeJVUAA5qre.jpg

This person drove for over a mile, mowing people down as they were dispersing from Bastille Day fireworks. Could you imagine someone simply driving through a crowd on the Fourth of July/. Bastille Day is France’s Independence Day! There people were just celebrating their country! It just all makes me so sick. The total bodycount is up to 84 people. What is this world coming to? Maybe I don’t even need my passport. It seems as though terrorists will stop at nothing to kill those with differing beliefs.


Many More Travels to Come!

I have traveling on the brain!

I got my passport book on Wednesday! This is a huge step for Team ShulLoudon here in little ol’ Lynchburg, Virginia. I can hardly wait to receive my ID card and all my documentation back. Now, THIS TIME, if I lose my driver’s license, I have this wonderful form on identification. Knocking on wood here…

Some places that I would really like to frequent are

Nags Head Island: Our Trip to OBX

We made a trip to the Outer Banks, North Carolina last week for our 2016 summer vacation.

I know, I am behind on my posts!

We stayed for 6 nights at the Hilton Garden Inn at Kitty Hawk right next to the pier. We had absolutely beautiful weather and really had a chance to enjoy our time together. We basically ate and went to the beach every day. It was glorious.


Looking for some grub. I am pretty sure this afternoon we ended up at the Rundown Cafe.



Hurry up, we’ve got to get there before the sun sets!

For everyone who knows Doug, you know a picture with this chops needs no caption (pun entirely intended). Just going to leave this here…

Whitecaps and the Kitty Hawk Pier. We saw a sea turtle off the pier on Sunday afternoon.

Our last dinner was at I got your Crabs Oyster and Shellfish Bar & Market. We ate our weight in raw oysters. I’ll take mine with lots of horseradish and lemon!


We would really like to rent a house on the beach next summer and invite our parents to meet and combine our vacation with some meeting time with Katrina, Stan & Tim & Jules. We are hoping to make this happen and finally get our families together to meet before we get married. This is important to the both of us. Here are some of our favorite restaurants that we had the fortune of visiting while we were staying:
