About us

We are Sue and Lee Ann.

We are enjoying a simple but happy retirement together.  Well, one of us is more retired than the other.  We have been together 31 years. In 2016, Sue turned 70 and Lee Ann turned 60. We will write about our "adventures" from both our perspectives and as a couple. Sue enjoys baking, cooking, walking and her great-granddaughter, Lincoln. Lee Ann enjoys running, biking and learning. She still works part--time at two businesses, Kairos Communications and Cedar Creek Sustainable Planning Services.

 

Utah rocks!

In October 2017 we rented a Jeep and visited Utah's five national parks, plus Monument Valley. Ride along with us!
