Cat or some know me as Meow
Family of 4 + our Frenchie fur baby, Bane. Caden (14) is our teenage digital ninja. He loves everything dogs, movies, and video games. Our daughter Rylan (9) stays very busy between dance, soccer, ukulele lessons, and anything outdoors.
My husband (Jason) is the real sports fanatic: but my favorite teams are The Washington Football Team, Boston Red Sox, Carolina Hurricanes, UNC Tarheels (Jason pulls for Duke...insert thumbs down emoji.)
The NC mountains are my home away from home. There are many areas of the Caribbean and Mexico that I love, but my real love is on a snowboard in the western US.
I am a peloton fanatic (meow27), love biking, walking, yoga, stretching, bootcamps especially at 5am! Organizing, designing digital photo albums and reading are my “therapy” in my time away from friends and family.
I am lucky to have lived in beautiful NC all of my life. I do sometimes miss my days living in Wilmington, NC.
