Splashing Around the World

Adventure, Experiences, New Place, Different Cultures, Beautiful Cities, Nature... all encompass why I love to travel. I may not be able to conquer it all but I will try my hardest to make it around the world leaving little ripples as I go.

6 Decades of History

"Check out all of those filing cabinets!".... something that I hear on a regular basis when visitors walk in my office and see my 6 very tall and large filing cabinets full or 6 decades of history. While I was working on filing today I thought I would share an inside look into some of the many memories that these cabinets hold. In these drawers are family trees, catalogs, photos, contracts, magazines and articles, press hits, awards... the list is endless but why you may ask are they all housed together? They are all a mini pieces of the puzzle of the history of Body Glove and Dive N' Surf.

I have spent many a days sitting on this floor with my trusty label maker :)
