About me

Location Iowa, United States
Introduction I've been married for 34 years to a wonderful man, we have 2 children, the lights of my life. I homeschool my kids, funny because I got a degree in art education that I never used because I HATED teaching. It really is better when it's just my two, although there is not enough money in the world to pay teachers who have to teach reading--it is the bane of my existence. My husband and I both love scouring antique stores and travelling to comfortable places. I often say our idea of the great outdoors is a table at a sidewalk cafe. Nature is pretty, but must be kept in its place.
Interests my children, antique stores, art history, Italian food, interior design
Favorite Movies Casablanca, Cold Comfort Farm, Brazil, Cinema Paradiso
Favorite Books Northanger Abbey, the Amelia Peabody and Vicky Bliss series, Summer at Fairacre, The Enchanted April, The Scarlet Pimpernel, and I quite enjoy The Cat in the Hat Comes Back
