I am a retired educator and mother of two grown children. After 30 years of teaching, I fill my days with friends, family, and outdoor activities like gardening, hiking and kayaking. I've recently travelled to Italy, but my favorite destination has to be our family cabin which I have been enjoying for 50 years.
