Ever since I was young, I was brought up in a beautiful environment, both inside and out. Outside, was the breath-taking garden where my father spent hours, days, months, and years tending to. Inside, I had the inspiration and care of my parents anytime I needed it. Growing up, I learned that it didn't matter how big your house was, how many cars you owned, or what clothes you wore. Being rich meant that you were lucky, not in the way most people cared about, but rich in ideas, creativity, and passion. My father has transformed our home into a personal wonderland, and I am lucky to be able to have grown up here. You can visit our home a thousand times and never be able to truly grasp how amazing it really is. There is always something to see that will leave you speechless or something unexpected to learn. Our home has become not a house and garden, but a museum, science lab, school, and an arboretum. My dad once told me, his father told him "to live in nature, live on nature, and live for nature." I believe that my grandfather would be proud to say that my father has successfully achieved this beyond measure. To be able to see the world from his point of view, is to be truly touched and blessed. This website was created so that we may share with the rest of the world, a look into the our own world. Although there are not enough words or pictures in the universe that can capture the essence of what I've experienced growing up in this amazing family, I hope that just maybe you can take a glimpse into the every day life of a lifestyle that has touched me forever. And even if you can only see a tiny portion of this world that I have experienced, you will understand why I am so grateful to be able to be a part of a family that has achieved so much, and not has only touched my heart, but the hearts of everyone who has crossed the path I call my home.
