I'm a native New Yorker (upstate) and settled in the Twin Cities in 1999. My husband and I live in St. Paul, Minn., in a lovely old neighborhood lined with Victorian and Craftsman homes. We have a darling 1919 1-1/2 story bungalow with tons of landscaping and a small backyard garden. I work for a small content marketing agency in Minneapolis, and spend my free time reading, training our rat terrier and working on my amateur photography skills. Of all the places we've traveled to, my hubs and I have come to love California best!
