Janet and James married 30 + plus years ago! Since then, we have raised two children who are now adults, and we have worked as social workers, administrators, and educators. Currently, James is a University of Washington School of Social Work lecturer, and Janet works with families and their young children. We love our beautiful location where we have the privilege of enjoying gorgeous sunsets, kayaking, and sea birds. Our island home is rich with local farmers, and we grow garlic and raspberries, too: we eat lots of fresh veggies and will direct you to where you can find them, too. We enjoy learning about culture and the interactions between our birth, local, and global cultures as well as our individual gifts and challenges. We love the Clyde, our local movie theater that is still affordable. Our recent trip was to Ireland and all of the UK, an amazing array of experiences . We love meeting people, and if you would like, we'd enjoy spending some time with you when you visit if our schedules allow. We speak basic Spanish, but will need a dictionary to communicate deeply. We are thrilled to be living in a state where any two adults who love each other can marry. We are members of Whidbey Island PFLAG.
