As empty-nesters, we live with our Papihuahua, Emerson, and our tuxedo cat, LUUna. Both are rescue pets and are a little quirky, but we are besotted with them. Martha is a writer and lyricist whose work has been published across several UU platforms and is used in UU churches across the country. Our sons, Aaron and Jacob, are grown and independent. Aaron lives in Galesburg, IL with his girlfriend, Sarah, and has recently returned to school after having worked for an ABC-affiliate station for several years. Jacob lives in Coralville, IA and presently works for Apple. We’re lucky to be able to be with each other several times across the year.
My extended family is very important to me. They all live in Houston, TX except for my nieces and nephews who are currently in college. Martha and I visit Texas each holiday season, alternating between Christmas and Thanksgiving, and occasionally visiting at other times of the year when possible.
