I grew up in southwestern Wisconsin. In my early 20's, I moved and lived in Dallas, TX until I went into the military in '89. I then spent the next three years in Germay where I met my wonderful husband. He brought me to South Carolina in '92. I have been here ever since, although I never dreamt I would be a southern girl. My husband and I have one child, a beautiful 10 year-old boy. My heritage is European to include German, Italian, and Norwegian. I totally love German and Italian foods, but don't know much about Norwegian culinary, although I am willing to learn. I love to entertain and have lots of people in my home. There is nothing better than having a good time with family and friends. I pretty much love anything that puts a smile on my face, and work diligently to live a full life - learning and doing a myriad of new things to enrich my life. I love luxurious things that are heaven to the senses.
