I am a small-business owner in Seattle, where I live with my husband and two spoiled cats. I am an avid franchophile who loves to cook, eat, and travel. My husband and I are easy-going guests who have rented apartments all over the world. We love animals, miss ours terribly while we are away, and don't mind staying in homes that have them. As a note, we are not messy or irritable guests, and we appreciate you opening your home/space to us. La vie est belle!
