When you book this place, here’s where your review will show up!
We have been happily married for over 11 years and we have a 10 year old daughter. Lori is a stay-at-home homeschooling Mom and Lance works at home developing computer software programs. We love traveling. In fact, in 2014 we spent 75 days in Europe traveling in 9 different countries including Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, and Slovenia. We met in Germany, where Lance was working as a contractor for the Army and I was doing my student teaching in a 2nd grade classroom at a Department of Defense School. Our daughter was born in a birth house in Germany and we moved to Colorado when she was 6 months old. We have a little dog, a mixed breed from the pound, named Paco ,who keeps us laughing every day.
