The Lupo Family
Greetings from Burlington, North Carolina! We are the Lupo’s! I’m Doug, the proud father of a wonderful wife (Lillian) and three amazing children (Christopher, Christina, and Savannah). We have lived in many wonderful places over the course of our family, but none give us more fulfillment, as being in North Carolina! The saying goes, “American by birth, but Southern by the grace of God!” That’s true, however, I was raised in North Carolina, she’s my home, and I’m here by choice. Amen!
As an explanation to why we love North Carolina, I’ve included Dean Martin’s version of “Carolina in the Morning (1957),” originally sung by Gus Kahn, music by Walter Donaldson, in 1922, plus James Taylor’s “Carolina in My Mind,” a song written and performed by the singer-songwriter, which first appeared on his 1968 self-titled debut album. The two above are classics. For the younger folks, I’ve included “North Carolina Home in My Heart” (1999) by Claudia Church and “Carolina Moon” by Scotty McCreery. I hope you enjoy the music.

Now, I know, after listening to the music, you’ll want to come on down here. That’s fine for vacation, but if permanent, I’ll have to remind you in Philippians 4:11, the Apostle Paul says for us to “be content in whatever circumstances.” That’s Southern for ya’ll need to stay put, ya hear!
