Charlotte, North Carolina

I am a 51 year old Air Force brat, retired nurse, gourmet cook, foodie, mom, wife and world traveler!! My father was stationed in Hawaii from the time I was born until he retired in 1973 after 27 years of service so I didn't get the travel that some military kids do. I've set about making up for that over the last several years. My husband loves to travel as well and we got the book, "1000 Places to See Before You Die", narrowed it down to 25, and have our bucket list in hand!! Now empty-nesters, travel and food have become our passion :) I thought the bucket list was getting smaller, but as we've traveled we've had to add even more to the list for "next time".
