Lover of color and light! That includes gardening ( two acres) creating rooms outside.
Photographer, designer of fashion ( glamour yoga wear) wedding gowns, ( I paint them now). We love to creat ambiance here and share with all who come thru the arch. I give classes on expressing yourself with paint and palm leaves on silk scarves , redesigning clothing, furniture and the way one lives.
Roger is always building and creating, an arbor, gates, doors (out of an old water tank) or pouring concrete for a fountain for La vida Hacienda. This year there will be a giant sunflower room for a wedding here. We like combing the old with the new , and the feeling like we are always on vacation. I rarely leave the compound, Roger likes to shop, thank goodness! We love eating outside and having casita guests share their stories, while we all enjoy the good food and wine available in this area.
We built this place ourselves. Roger is an architectural engineer and wanted to create a lasting home. So it is built out of styrofoam and concrete with an old world ambiance. There are huge old beams in the house and casita. Nothing is typical and you truly feel you are in another world.
