I grew up smack dab in the middle of in the Great American Midwest, clicked my heels and took off for a walk from LA to DC, met and married the man I still enjoy being with every day, raised 3 beautiful daughters, lived in 3 countries, was transplanted to the Republic of Texas and visited many other lands.Β  I love spending time with my family and enjoy writing, walking, Eurocamping and international travel, have been cooking forever and like experimenting with exotic ingredients, new recipes and healthy foods.

Pura Vida, Life is Good and thanks for stopping by!
