I'm M.K., and I live in Oriental, North Carolina, U.S. It's the sailing capitol of North Carolina, and (some say) the cruising capitol of the east coast. Oriental is a beautiful, relaxing village on a seven-mile-wide river, on a 30-mile-wide sound, just off the Atlantic Ocean.
My husband Adam is a pastor here at a cute little Presbyterian church just outside of town.

Residents of Oriental tend to walk, bike, and visit around town every day, with their dogs in tow. If it's raining, they just don their foul-weather gear and go out anyway! Adam loves being a pastor in a town like this; it's easy to meet everyone. He also keeps bees a little. (Note the bee page among the tabs.)
We've been on a weight-loss journey this year. Together, we've lost 80 lbs. thus far. We feel so much better! This year, Adam hopes to be a rower on a dragon boat in the town's annual race ~
We have dragon boat races ... I kid you not :)
Most of all, we feel very blessed that God has planted us here in this spot. It's full of beauty.
