Hi! I am a married mother of two grown children (empty nest), who enjoys live music - blues, rock, jazz, as well as a good book or movie! You can find me going for a walk to a favorite espresso house on weekend mornings or taking our dog Sophie for a romp in the park. I enjoy golfing with friends, bicycling the Burke-Gilman trail to Woodinville for some wine tasting or a Redhook IPA, and having friends over for an evening on the deck. I love going to the Pike Place Market in Seattle for fresh pastries and unbelievable espresso. Spring through fall I am shopping at Redmond's Saturday Market for fresh local produce, eggs, cheese, arts and crafts. I love learning, new adventures, traveling (France & Barcelona especially), meeting people and learning about their lives - and showing them a good time.
