I am a native Californian but have lived in the Northwest since my teens so my roots are here now. It's been a great place to raise a family and now that my kids are grown, my Labradoodle and our three cats are the "kids" we dote on. I am a sports fan, especially the Seahawks! I love movies, music and BBQ. I actually have a Traeger pellet smoker, a Big Green Egg and a Weber charcoal grill but don't get to use them enough, sadly. I would say my favorite activity is travel, again not enough time to do much these days! If I could live anywhere that I have visited, it would be Kauai in Hawaii. That place just makes me feel better and i can't wait to visit again. I hope that gives you a glimpse into my background and thanks for looking me up!
