Write a short autobiography! What do you enjoy doing on your down time? Do you live near family? House, apartment, lake house? Career? Share whatever you'd like! I'd love to know more about each of you!

I was born in Burnaby, British Columbia but lived most of my life in Washington state.  I married my high school sweetheart and we had 3 kids.  I own my house that my late husband built.  It sits on five acres on a little island.  I don't have a lot of down time but I enjoy hiking, taking the kids to the beach and reading.  I am a financial advisory assistant, I work with government agencies.  I have done that for 5 years.

I grew up in S. Texas, met my husband in college and he decided to join the Marine Corps. 24 years later we've moved 17 times. My kids were very high maintenance and drove me to change my degree from Special Education to the Behavior Sciences. I spent years working with children on the spectrum before taking a couple years off for health problems. My mom died 6 years ago and my dad passed last year. I was left the family business, a gun range. Now both my husband and son are active duty Marines, my daughter attends a private Christian college in Colorado and my husband is stationed at the Pentagon. I split my time between the DC metro area and the homestead in S. Texas. I have a staff that keeps the range running, but my daughter and I are down here for most of the summer. I have very different, split lives. Its hard being away from my  husband so much but its' only until May 2015!

Hobbies: I sew. For real. I bought a Ford Expedition with my sewing money. I used to design ball gowns and had my own line of toddler's clothes for girls with sensory issues many years ago.

Oh yeah...wine. It got me through the teenaged years. Vodka helped too.

 Sexy If its unladylike, fattening or fun, I'm in!

Born in California and moved here to Arizona right after my 7th birthday.

I will be 47 in August and have been married over 27 years. We have three kid's and multiple pets.

My Mom is the closest to me as far as distance, living only a town away. We live in a house on the western fringe of the area close to Phoenix.

I am a SAHM and home educating parent of our youngest. I am also a budding author, working on my first book.

Dh and I considering a possible small food truck type of business. Maybe specialties we've created over time. Who knows?

I live in Westchester NY with my husband and 4 kids. Prior to moving to Westchester, I had lived my entire life in Queens.  We live far enough away from my MIL that she's only here once or twice a month...usually about 2 nights per visit.  

I started with my company, a medical publishing company, in 1995. I'm looking forward to my 20 year anniversary and the perks that come with it! I work full time from home. It was an office job that my boss converted to a work from home position in 2009 when I got pregnant with my 3rd child.

The fact that I work from home and my husband is self-employed and also works from home allowed us to move without having to worry about commuting.

My recent favorite pasttime is baking but since I'm trying to lose weight, I've had to give up the baking. Sad because I do love my sweets.

We live at the beach in Southern California.  My husbans is a tattoo artist and water color painter.  I am a stay at home mom to our son Lucky who has moderate-severe Autism.  We are all SoCal born and raised.  We love to drive around in our golf cart and enjoy our town and beach.  I have a BA in Speech Communication from Long Beach State and went to high school in Big Bear Lake where my Mom and her Wife still live.

That would be so cool and along the lines of what we're considering. :)
