Kelly is a master at family travel having founded Zel travel and R Family vacations. Anne is a noted vocalist who has traveled the world to sing and is currently doing on line concerts to fundraise for City Harvest.

On this episode we discuss how they first met and Anne coming out as “Lesbi Anne.” Kelli says,

“She was funny and she was smart and all the things that are way more important to me than look she’s beautiful and talented that’s amazing, but smart and funny are way up in the list”

Stephen asks them his favorite question, “Who Said I Love you first?” and the joys of blending a family while going on a family cruise. (it includes a lot of making out in the hallway) .
