I have lived in the upstate New York area for over 25 years and have come to love the beauty of the rolling hills, the temperate, lush summers and the beautiful, vibrant falls. Winters here are a little more challenging, but beautiful just the same. I am a lover of the arts, a sometimes painter and an avid gardener. I love being out in nature, growing my own food and flowers, and using my gifts and talents to cook and entertain. Sharing my home seems like the natural extension of my eclectic interests and desire to make people feel welcomed and at home.
