We are Tim Smith and Stacey Morgan Smith, and we live and work in the Shenandoah Valley. We spend most of our free time on our former pick-your-own flower farm. Everything is overgrown, especially the invasive honeysuckle and autumn olive!
We normally have two dogs and two cats keeping us company.
Stacey is a graduate of Virginia Tech. She is an editor and works from home for a Virginia-based financing company.
Tim is a graduate of West Virginia University. He has spent his career in public service and is the tourism and visitor center coordinator for a local Virginia town.
We are lovers of the outdoors!
We love to hike in Shenandoah National Park and the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests, as well as other little excursions around the Valley.
Tim has camped all over the country. He loves to fly fish and might believe in sasquatch. Stacey spends her time outside digging in the dirt as she puts in and takes care of flowers and veggies.
We both love to visit National Parks, and we are happy collectors of passport stamp cancellations.
We also volunteer in our communities — We support the Friends of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River, and Tim is Vice President of the Virginia Master Naturalists, Shenandoah Chapter. Stacey is the Secretary and Plant Sale lead of the Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardener Association.
Stacey is outspoken about the importance of preventative cancer screenings, and she works to increase knowledge of the importance of early colon cancer detection.
Finally, we are advocates for the “Buy Local” campaign that is spreading in our communities. When you support a local business, you build a stronger community! We try to put most of our money into the areas where we live and work.
