My husband and I are empty-nesters who moved to Nampa, Idaho in October, 2005. I love to walk, and here in Nampa it is particularly enjoyable because of all the animals, something that was not a part of my walks in California. I started writing about the subject of hospitality last year, and began posting the articles on our website, as well as "articles" sites on the "net". This has become a passion for me as I have watched people in our society becoming less and less connected. My husband and I are Christians, and as such, believe we have a responsibility to welcome others into our home, to be hospitable, if you will.
