About Me

My photo
We've lived alot of places including S.Korea, Seattle and San Diego. We've liked all the places we've been, but we like our current home the best! We now live in a great town with fabulous people that appreciate the value of hard work and a kind word. Its tough to find that type of place anymore. So with that said, we enjoy taking road trips, working on our house, growing our garden, attempting new recipes, and just hanging out as a family pursuing new and old hobbies, and spending time with our families. We have lots to be thankful for, and hope to share a glimpse into that here. Visit often, sit awhile and leave a comment!

7 Things about Myself...
1. I love lots of different forms and styles of music.
2. I love dark chocolate, but really do not eat it unless I'm PMSing ;)
3. I have an addiction to stuff that periodically changes as fast as the wind can shift.
4. I love technology, and especially my cell phone and all its apps. If I go somewhere without it, I experience small doses of panic! LOL
5. I love learning new languages, and really enjoy speaking them. I know a little of about 2 addtl languages.
6. I am a coffee addict! I think I'm mostly addicted to the ease of driving somewhere and having my coffee made for me...
