Mother of three young adult children. Work parttime in the insurance world. Number one pasttime would be taking and editing pictures (need any edited, let me know!), followed by traveling, reading, and gardening. Love to take all kinds of pictures but my best are either portraits or close ups of flowers and other nature shots. My poor kids have had to be patient with Mom and her camera ("hold that pose") and my neighbors have probably considered having me committed after watching me practically standing on my head trying to get that perfect shot in my flower beds. Thanks to my kids' musical talents, I have been able to chaperon trips to England, Scotland, Hong Kong and mainland China. More of my vacations in recent years have been to Canada than to my own country. Was I Canadian in a past life??? Hoping to live on the west coast of Canada, at least part time, someday soon!
