I am a mother of three kids, ages 16, 14, and 9. I have a degree in engineering (and so does my husband), but I choose not to work so that I can spend more time with them. My mother and I have taken several trips together, the last two to France. I have taken a couple of semesters of French recently to make the trips more fun, and am signed up to take another 2 semesters of it this year. I was born in Germany, and have taken a couple of semesters of German too, but it was a while ago. I love spicy food, good movies, and good music. If I could, I would live in Europe.
