About Me
Work
Retired from The University of California, Santa Cruz
Hey, I'm Donna!
Gig Harbor, Washington, United States · Member since February 2012

Retired and now enjoying being a grandmother, homemaker and Air BnB host, along with husband, Kevin. We enjoy meeting new people and entertaining family and friends. A favorite hobby is baking, so guests enjoy the fruits of our labors in the way of nut breads, cookies, Danish, muffins, and scones. Comes in handy for the "breakfast" part of our bed and breakfast ventures.

Living here has helped us to appreciate nature, a serene approach to life and the innate goodness of people everywhere. In crisis, we take "one-day-at-a-time" -- sometimes, "five-minutes-at-a-time", depending on the situation. As with baking, breaking bigger components down into smaller measured portions seems to help move life forward easier.
