I was born and raised in northern California, my husband in western Texas. We moved to Portland, Oregon about 20 years ago. We like to watch movies, go the theater. I volunteer in political campaigns, hike a little, and ride my bike a little.. My husband roasts our coffee, listens to as much music as he can, organizing neighborhood parties, and taking road trips to California and explore Oregon, is interested a just about anything. We both like to garden,cook for friends,and going to the beach, mountains, and high desert.
