When I’m not writing, I like to hang out with my family. We have some favorite TV shows we watch together—Amazing Race, Food Network Star, Once Upon a Time and Grimm.
We also like to cook and sit down for a good meal together. Favorite meals include pasta and something off the grill—salmon or steaks. And we love to have friends over; we have company every other week. Pizza off the grill is always a hit. Here’s a post we wrote for Reading Teen, in which we tell you how to do it…
We’re occasionally family travel bloggers—our sites are www.TheWorldisCalling.com and www.TeenTravelers.com So exploring new places, traveling whenever we can afford it, is a constant draw. In October, I took my daughter Emma to Italy, and we spent ten days in Rome, and five in Venice. It was wonderful!
Much to my kids’ chagrin, I get a kick out of hiking, so we’re always looking for a new, family-friendly trail. Here’s one we took when the aspens were in their golden glory, here in Colorado: http://www.theworldiscalling.com/2011/10/devils-head-peak-trail/
Going to movies, a thought-provoking, spirit-stirring Bible study, fixing up my house, Twitter and Facebook fill much of my free time. I also think reading is a luxury—to curl up with a good book is still one of my favorite pastimes. I just finished Cynthia Hand’s Unearthly and loved it. I try to review anything I read, inspired by book bloggers like you!
