My husband, Jim, just completed remodeling his Topanga Canyon home, and we have turned it into our own part-time retreat. We are ready to welcome guests! We are long-time guests through AirBnB, and now it is time to return the favor.
I am a woman of a certain age who loves travel, wine, reading, and cooking. I retired in 2010 after 37 years of teaching high school, a job I loved but was done with it. In 2012 I married a wonderful man who was my college sweetheart for a year way back when. Jim and I took a 35 year break and have been back together for a few years. He is retired, too, and now that the house remodel is done, he can spend more time with photography. We enjoy our routines like burger Tuesday and movie night, watching our recorded shows, having dinner in our home. We enjoy our friends, we go to the Hollywood Bowl throughout the summer and to neighborhood park concerts, we love Mexican food and Margaritas. We enjoy being together! We each have a grown child and we are a close family. We yearn to continue traveling, and Jim and I have taken some wonderful trips in the last few years. I love little things, like my morning coffee, music, my evening wine, novels, movies, and just BEING.
