T = Terri

Ellis, KS

This morning we moved about 75 miles east on I 70 to Ellis, Ks.  We are parked at a small city campground right on a small lake.   Temperature expected to reach 98!

Today I dedicate my Blogging from A to Z to my younger daughter Terrianne Kristin. 

She is the caretaker of the family.  If anyone has a need, she is the first one there.    Even though Terri is definitely a Type A personality, she has a heart of gold.

I sometimes question her rational thinking as she followed her mother in her chosen field - Human Resources.   At one time she wanted to be a Pastry Chef and is a graduate of the Restaurant School in Philadelphia.   She was doing well in that field but soon realized that money just was not there until a chef is well established.  

So she took some entry level positions in HR and through a series of jobs, is now a regional  HR Manager for an International food processing company that grows and processes chocolate throughout the world.  She oversees three facilities: one in Pa, one in NJ and one a North Carolina.   A big benefit is she gets to travel to Switzerland and Germany every year.

Here she is opening one of her favorite Christmas gifts!

She and her hubby, Steve, enjoy visiting wineries when they travel.   Speaking of travel, this is her coming out of a wee building in Scotland that was outside a Cathedral.

Family and friends mean a great deal to Terri.    She and Steve have a great a circle of friends which she loves to entertain at our old house in NJ which she bought.    She always prepares so much food that her guests knew to bring their Tupperware for the leftovers.   She felt bad that they had to bring their own containers so she now keeps a supply of hinged Styrofoam take-out containers.

This is Terri with the two top men in her life:  Son Justin and Husband Steve.

Smart, caring, dedicated, ambitious, generous  - That's our Terri!
