I'm from Minneapolis, MN, where I own and manage a Victorian triplex. I'm also an IT consultant and "intermittently retired." When not working on a project or my house, I love to travel. I also enjoy theater, art, photography, and writing. When I travel I want to come close to experiencing places as the locals do.
I'm the mother of two grown daughters and the stepmother of a third. I also have two wonderful grandchildren and a great son-in-law.
When asked to describe me, people most often use the word "calm."
"Enchanted April" is one of my favorite movies.
I like to walk a lot, both when I'm home and when I'm traveling.
When I first get to a city, I like to go to the top of the tallest building, or take a touristy tour, just to get a feel for things. If it's an in-depth tour, all the better. One of my favorites was an architectural tour of Chicago, given from a boat on the Chicago River.
My late husband and I loved to visit Frank Lloyd Wright buildings. Once we even stayed in a cabin Wright designed towards the end of his life.
