We are a fun and loving couple... and funny too. (well, we think we're hilarious) We love our house and our neighborhood (big back yard with ping pong & badminton, the lake and the park each 100 paces from our door). We think it is all too wonderful to keep to ourselves. Such a great place should be shared. And in sharing we are blessed by meeting amazing people. We loved hosting kids studying here from other countries. We hosted 27 over the years. We hope to visit them all when we retire.
My husband loves to cook and golf. I work from home on my website, ilovemymind. I research brain health and human potential and maintain a blog on how to keep your mind young and sharp as you age. I am fascinated about health, archaeology and marketing. Jonathan is fascinating, able to speak on almost any topic and is (as he puts it) full of useless facts. He wants to learn guitar. I want to improve my Italian language skills. We are positive and accepting people. Our family motto is; to respect, protect and empower.
We live across from the cleanest swimming lake in Seattle. I swim across it (and back) in the summer. Jonathan would love to golf more than work, but for now Boeing wins out for his time as a project manager in Employee Engagement. We have been married 25 years (thanks to the golden rule, which we follow.)
We lived in Italy for three years, while in the Navy. We have great photos and love to talk about it. We are in our 50's with a ballerina daughter who lives in North Seattle. We currently have two international students from Japan. We have hosted many people in our home over the years and have had wonderful reviews from them all. People kept saying, you should open a B&B. Voila. Here we are.
