I was born and raised in Indiana. Married Stephen in 1966. We have two children and two granddaughters and a great granddaughter on the way. We have lived in many interesting places. In 1996 we built our dream home in the back woods of Missouri. We designed an earth sheltered solar home. We enjoyed 8 wonderful years on our homestead. In 2005 we moved back to Indiana to be with family (new granddaughter). Other places we have lived are Cincinnati, Phoenix, San Francisco and Indianapolis. We are both retired and go to Florida in the winter to escape the winter blues of Indiana. Stephen and I enjoy cooking and trying out new food and recipes. We belong to our YMCA and participate in the Silver Sneaker programs as well as working out in the weight room. We also enjoy a yoga class twice a week. In the summer we tend a small raised bed garden that provides us with lots of fresh produce in the summer and fall months.
