We are Rudy and Sandie, from the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, one hour west of Denver. We've lived here in our mountain home for twenty years. My husband sells plants to nursery stores in Colorado. I help him and work from home. Rudy grew up in southern California, where he got his first surfboard at the age of ten. Colorado winters means there isn't any planting in January, so we try to escape to warm weather places for a couple of weeks where we can enjoy the sun and Rudy can get his yearly surfing fix.
