In real-life, I'm a wife, mother/ mother-in-love, grandma, and friend.
In 2002 I celebrated a return to the Southwest -- having slowly migrated east from my upbringing in Los Alamos (NM): 17 fantastic years spent in West Texas; another 16 in Florida.
Without benefit of a job, family or friends, this last move was a leap of faith ~ a keen desire to reside in the desert southwest near the mountains. Since then, I married my best friend and became part of an amazing new "family" at work.
Truth be told, I most enjoy staying close to home with a good book, or sharing laughter and good conversation with a one or two close friends.
