In an effort to keep this blog from constantly being written from the eyes of my wife, and to add a different voice to our experiences, I have decided (and been told) to write an entry now and again. Admittedly, I like to hear myself talk and you, being the captive audience that I imagine, are happy to lend an ear.
So…First things first, who am I? Well, I’m glad you asked. I am Jason, the fella lucky enough to be married to the founder of The Shady Umbrella, Kristin. We’ve been married about five years. I was born and raised in Charleston, SC and the surrounding areas. I enjoy doing just about anything outdoors, listening to music, and seeing new places with close friends. Kristin and I have been blessed with great families, a tight circle of friends, and a lazy bulldog. I am a hard worker, but my that’s not what makes me tick. My professional life just gives me a means to do the things that I enjoy. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my job and consider steady employment a blessing. I just don’t live to work, I work to live…
I have officially been named a pro bono associate of The Shady Umbrella. I managed to run head first into this title after I told my wife that she needed to keep posting fresh content and not let things become stale. I don’t have any credentials relative to travel other than I like to go new places, but that’s OK. I am not the travel agent, just a different perspective that more often than not is different than my wife’s.
So, if you will indulge me, from time to time I am going to write an entry or two. I hope you enjoy reading them.
