Hi everyone. I am Debi, the owner of The Spring Mount 6 Pack. I started this blog in 2009, right before my youngest daughter, Willow, was born. This site and I have been through a lot in those 7 years.
So what does The Spring Mount 6 Pack mean? Well the name started as a joke. When I moved to Spring Mount, the town of about 2200 people, has no post office, about 6 stop signs, no post office, but it has 4 bars. And my neighbors would bring out bags and bags of beer cans to recycle. So that was the joke behind the name. But at the time it was myself, my (now ex-) husband and our 4 kids, so we made up the 6 pack.
Since then, I have gotten divorced, moved, fell in love with my soul mate, and we have 6 kids together. So lucky for me, one 6 pack gave way to another, and I am the happiest I have ever been in my life.
So about me. My family comes first, In every way. I love to eat. I love to travel. I need my coffee. I always want to play with the newest tech toys. My pets are like my babies, and I love to get my hand on things to do. I am a bit obsessed with the craft store and can not go in with my credit card. I will buy everything I see.
My goal in life, and on this blog, is to make life easier. We all have so many things that we have to do, that it can be hard to find time to do the things we want to do. I want to spend my time having fun, eating, crafting, traveling the country, finding new experiences and making memories with my family.
This is Don. I have known him almost my whole life. He is now my fiance, love of my life and the person who supports me completely. I know, a little sappy. He seems to have brought out the romantic in me as well. We are always creating adventures whether it is date night in the park under the stars, taking the kids on a road trip, or turning our beat up full size van into a camping van or restoring an old camping trailer.
In May of 2015, 2 weeks after we started dating, Don was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. As you can imagine, that was a not so pleasant surprise. We plan to write occasionally about this journey in hopes of helping others dealing with the same issue.

So who is in the 6 Pack?
Willow, age 7. She is a crazy wild spirit who is way to wise and smart for her age. Sometimes we wonder where she even heard some of the words that she says. Her perseverance is amazing and she is always trying something new. She’s a little dare devil which scares the crap out of me.
Serenity, age 13. This is my sensitive, emotional jewel. She is sweet and kind and crazy. She is a natural cheerleader and is always trying to perfect her jumps or form or tumbles.
Joey, age 19. Joey is my culinary wise who is working his way to be a master chef. Currently at CIA, Culinary Institute of America, this kid is something else. There is nothing he can’t learn on a musical instrument.
Harley, age 19. Harley is currently enrolled at the Art Institute to perfect her drawing skills. She is very talented at creating characters in her drawings. She is more than a little obsessed with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Anthony, age 20. Anthony is a whirl wind all his own. This kid is pretty much always at work, at one job or another. He is over the top, dramatic and lives for drama.
Donny, age 20. Donny is a hard working man who is taking control of his life and deciding what direction he want to go in. He can take almost anything apart, and can usually figure out what is wrong with it and get it put back together. Unfortunately, this means there are often bits and pieces of electronics or motors, or whatever laying around the house.
