Personal Memory

In 2010 Mike and I spent two weeks in Europe split between England, Scotland, and Italy. On one of our last nights in Italy we had an amazing dinner at a small restaurant in the village we were staying in. Fresh fish, shrimp with lemon, pasta and pesto, tiramisu, and good wine. It was a night we knew would probably never happen again, so we savored it while it lasted and still think back to our time there with a smile.


I enjoy cooking and baking, sewing, gardening, singing/playing instruments, and making all kinds of art
