I am a fun loving, animal loving mother of 2. I teach 4th grade and am happy to have the summer off! Being on or near the water makes me VERY happy. I love all kinds of animals and would love to swim with a whale some day. Road trips are awesome. Love to travel, long or short vacation. I am happy at the beach, in the mountains, in a big city, although casual attire suits me best. Don't do dress up too well. :) Musical tastes vary from Americana, Oldies, Instrumentals, Western Swing. James Taylor is one of my favs. I don't label myself liberal or conservative. It totally depends on the issue.
