I am from the suburbs of Chicago, reared most my life in the city on the south side. I am a helper, but only to those who want my help. I love good food, cooking it, going out to nice restaurants with ambiance, live music especially jazz, traveling, a good workout, and enlightening conversation. My "babies" Cashew and Chloe are my heart, they are yorkie-poos. I am currently married, my husband is a truck-driver. We do a lot of traveling together..Peru, London, and Scotland are some of the places. I hope to move to someplace warm and to be happier, relaxed and lessen my stress. We already scoped out Florida and Texas. California has to be the place for us, just where is the question. I also will be working on my doctorate beginning in August, so good coffee shops are a must. My friend host guests here in Chicago, thats how I learned of airbnb.
