I live in Raleigh, North Carolina with my husband and two small children. My hobbies include tennis, cooking, reading, gardening, spending time at our family's lake house and travelling. I spent 11 years living in London so I love travelling in Europe both to cities to see museums and sights as well as visiting quieter spots off the beaten path. My husband is British and I am American and so we host out of town guests a lot and always appreciate the opportunity to be guests in someone else's home and are careful to treat it as our own. We are a tidy family and have a minimalist uncluttered style in our own house. We are easy going there is not much we can't live without...we have enjoyed camping in Europe as well as staying in fancy hotels!
