I live in the mountains of Virginia in a pristine area with spectacular scenery. My new husband and I are building our retirement home that takes advantage of a passive solar design among other green initiatives. I am winding down my sales career but plan to keep working several more years remotely. In my free time I like to garden, cook, travel and create art. Right now I am working on pieces that incorporate flamework glass and fiber arts. My favorite kind of travel is to find lodging where I can walk and get a feel for the local flavor.
