I finally made it!

Hi! My name is Julie Manquen and I have wanted to live in the South and close to the beach for as long as I can remember. I was born and raised in Ohio and have never ventured very far from home until now. I moved to Charleston, SC with my husband and we are both really excited and feel very blessed to be here. It only took me 40 "somethingish" years to get here! 

My Husband, Derek was born and raised in Michigan but all of his immediate family now lives in South Carolina. He is beyond thrilled to have family close, it is the first time in his adult life. 

My husband and I have 5 children between us. I have a daughter Paige (26) and a son Austin (22). Derek has two daughters, Briana (22) and Jenna (19). He also has a son Alex (17). Alex is the only one of the 5 that lives in SC with us full-time. We look forward to having all of the kids visit and help us explore new areas.
