I am a Wife, Mom, Grandmother and blogger with my own home business. I also work in a nursing home and realize that life is fragile and we have to make the best of it. I try to live life to the fullest and make my dreams come true. One winter hubby and I took off in the middle of a snowstorm to the Florida Keys. That's how we roll! At any given moment we could be up and running given the opportunity! I hope you enjoy learning about me and my beautiful life.
Getting to Know Terri Lorah
Welcome to my World....
It's Been over 30 Years
Our Family Means the World To Us
When we got married in 1979 I was 19 and hubby was 21. It seemed normal back then to get married at that age. Now when I think of kids getting married that early, I shudder and think they are way too young. I realize we were just kids ourselves, even though we felt all grown up! I had all three of my kids by the time I was 25! Kids raising kids, but yet somehow we managed and did a pretty good job of it if I do say so!
We've had tough times and good times, hard times and abundant times but we always battled our way through whatever life threw at us and worked through it. Being married is the best, I couldn't imagine any other way.
Do You Think Young Adults Today Value Marriage As Much As We Did?
Three Kids and Two Grand Daughters
Life is Good
These are my three! Dave and Steve are in a band, Rearview Destroyer. Remember that name because they are starting to become quite the heavy metal rockers on the internet and locally. My daughter had gifted us with two little beauties, Hailey and Kira and they just love to spend time with MomMom and Pappy! I am telling you, if you have grand kids then you know the joy of having them to indulge in!
We Love The USA
When I was younger I thought about traveling to places abroad but now that I am older and my love for my Country is so deep, I've taken quite an interest in travel across the USA. I even started a small blog about USA only Travel
I realize that the USA has so many things to do and see, why go to another country and worry about terrorists or passports or any of that stuff that just makes you more stressed. We've been to some places that you've probably been to like Ocean City or Hershey Park, and we've enjoyed our road trips, especially the one where we up and ran off like teenagers to the Florida Keys. That was fun and it was hard to come back to 20 degree weather after soaking in the sun for ten days.
Our next adventure will involve an RV, I just have to wait until the right time to let hubby in on that...
