I live with my beloved husband Mark, and two deeply loved Springer Spaniels in Alexandria, Virginia. I have three adult step-children with two spouses connected to them, and three perfect grandchildren. My mother-in-law is thriving at 92 and is always hoping to play cards and feed us. Along with four brothers, and three sisters-in-law, I have been gifted with a lovely assortment of nephews, and one fabulous niece. I am frequently out and about, love to travel, have several reading piles, and often enjoy an evening at the neighborhood dog park with friends.
