Dr. Morrison and their children accompany his wife to the bridal market in New York once a year to “help” with her shows at the NY Bridal Market.

They love to travel as a family and take at least 2 long distance trips a year. They enjoy skiing and hiking as well. Dr. Morrison is a poor golfer and an average tennis player but doesn’t get to do either as much as he would like. They love going to the ATL UTD games and are big local ATL sports fans.
