A little about me...
Travel: my winter reprieve. I like my fireplace, I like snowstorms, I like sledding, I LOVE traveling South!
Family: my 2 daughters are fun women who are also mothers themselves. I have 5 grandchildren (3 boys 2 girls) . We are lucky to all live near one another and hang out together as time allows.
Career: I have been a nurse for 30 years. There have been highlights and lowlights and everything in between. I can handle emergencies well and needles don't make me squeamish. Retirement is fast approaching though and I welcome it with open arms. (More time for travel!)
1. I can knit you a scarf or draw you a picture or sew you a bag. My arts and crafts aren't professional (yet), but they keep my mind creative and I enjoy them all very much.
2. Going "home" for me is LaCrosse, WI. I'm a devoted Packer fan but my 20+ years in MN have made me an equally devoted Twins fan.
3. White water rafting is my "adventure goal". One of my brothers is in Denver and has told me he will not join me in my goal so I am still looking for a raft companion.

I have two daughters and 4 grandchildren that are the lights of my life. I have two brothers that I am close with and a group of girlfriends that make regular things a lot more fun!
