Single parent of a wonderful 17 year old. Love to travel and to meet people. Love cooking and finding inexpensive but good restaurants/hole-in-the-wall eateries. Trekked extensively in the Himalayas and the Sahyadris. Owned and operated Tara Boutique for 16 years in Wakefield, RI, the community I have resided in for the last 25 years. Closed the store in Oct 2010 to go back to school for a PTA degree. Will now be selling in kiosks at local hospitals, schools, colleges, fund raisers and home parties arranged by existing customers etc and on the web.
