I live in this beautiful place with my recently retired husband and two dogs. Our five children were (mostly) raised here, and now live all over the map. We have four granddaughters and a grandson. My passions are my family, friends, animals, gardening, reading, learning, politics, peace in the world, and sustainable living. My small home businesses include a wedding/event site, bed and breakfast availability, and vacation rental of our property. I'm friendly, tolerant, helpful, and progressive.
