I am married with 2 small kids. We recently moved to Iowa from California through a requested job transfer (seeking family values, good schools, seasons, etc.). We love it here! I stay home with my children since we moved, but I am a OB-GYN Nurse Practitioner by education and work experience. I do miss that, but am pleased to have the opportunity to shape my children's lives as much as I can. I thought I'd have a lot more free-time by staying home, but it is all gone with responsibilities here...LOL. When I do carve out time I enjoy painting, crafts, quilting, scrapbooking, reading, gardening, and OF COURSE cooking!
