I grew up in Murfreesboro, TN back when it was a small town. I went to college there and was a commercial lender for a bank until 1989 when I married my dyed-in-the-wool Texan husband and moved to Dallas. I loved my years in Texas...there's truly no place like it, and it does "get in your blood". It's just so dang hot! Being self-employed (and Van semi-retired), we took advantage of the freedom that allows and followed through on a dream we've had for 20+ years. In 2017 we packed it up and moved to the mountains of beautiful Western North Carolina! Call us crazy, but remodeling homes is a hobby for us. Lone Star Retreat is the 5th house we've completely renovated top to bottom since we've been married! I love to dance, laugh out loud and I whistle a lot! I've been told I shouldn't sing along to the radio, but I do it anyway! I believe what comes around, goes around, and that we should all live, and let live. We both enjoy gardening, movies and playing with our beloved pets. We treasure spending time with our three fabulous children and love hosting happy hour with friends on our deck! We love Tex-Mex, sushi, walking around the lake and visiting historical places. I love soul music, Van's a Beatles fan, and we both love meeting new people so Airbnb is a natural for us! Come see us and experience some North Carolina charm and beauty at our Lone Star Retreat!
