I love the Hudson Valley. I grew up in this gorgeous part of New York and still live here today. It’s just breathtaking in the fall when all the leaves change color.

Nowadays, my family lives real close …

Bear With Me – Please Vote for Animals Asia

My friend Morgan (my wife’s college buddy) has also been a huge animal lover. In her California home, she’s pretty much running her own animal shelter with a dog and probably 19 cats at this point (give or take a dozen or so).
