I am a retired teacher living in this beautiful mountain community in New Mexico. I love to read, hike, travel, and enjoy meeting people. I also love the theater and music. I grew up in New Mexico, but have also lived in Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada. I have kids and grandkids that I enjoy, and a large extended family. I have one cat that adopted me, named M.J. Toes. I have hosted several foreign exchange students and "Up With People" cast members. I learned so much from them and still keep in touch. I recently decided to share my home with people who would like to come and discover this enchanting area of New Mexico. I strive to make you feel "at home" here in the mountains. My motto is "Life is What YOU make it."
