I am a mother of two young children (ages 5 months and 6 years) and my spouse of 13 years is a physician. We have lived in Portland, OR for 6 years. We have also lived in Boston, San Diego, and Los Angeles. We both grew up in the Bay Area. We own our own home in Portland and have one cat, two rabbits, and three chickens. Our home is meticulously kept and our children well behaved (and great sleepers). We don't watch much TV, we love to cook and eat, we are avid readers and my favorite book this year is Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer. We go to bed early-- 9:30 is our typically bedtime! Our idea of a great vacation is waking up, walking to a local bakery, reading or visiting with friends, exploring a neighborhood, local lunch and dinners, more reading once the kids are asleep and an early bedtime!
