Local girl , grew up Castro Valley Ca.
As a antique collector and interior designer I'm redesigning spaces in my home.
My favorite space is a beautiful chair in front of a antique fireplace, were at the end of the day I can kick off my shoes, put my feet up and read a good book, just finished Jim Fergus's, One Thousand White Women, a chronicle of the Old West.
Owned a Gift and Home Decor Shop for 15 years. Like being on and near the water. Hiking, working out and dancing. I do enjoy camping, but my first choice would be a fine hotel or a B&B. I have not done alot of traveling, but the Amalfi Coast is on my to do list. I like boating. Love to slow dance and I'm a great kisser. In college I studied Art, in San Francisco. Love fast cars and Motorcycles. Top down is even better. Often modeling in fashion shows. Love the out of the way back roads and small out of the way places. Fishing a few times, caught a tiny fish in Santa Cruz, when I was six, brought it home to my cat Tinkerbell, he had nothing to do with it, jeez was I disappointed.
Loved Kauia and Mexicio. The Wine Country is a favorite, Sonoma and the beautiful MacArthur Place Inn and Spa is a favorite. Peet's espresso is my got to have.
I make a living doing something that makes me happy. I have a house that makes me smile everytime I pull in the driveway. I have two beautiful adult children who are happy and healthy and on there own. I still hunger to learn and grow as a person. Family, faith, contentment, simpicity and memories are the things that bring me joy.
Gardening is something I enjoy ever much. I love to discover a new city with a camera. Exploring antique shops and farmers markets as well as craft shows. Enjoy a glass of wine while flipping through a gorgeous book. Love to hear all the Blues Bands around the bay area. Trying to find more time to draw and do watercolor painting. I'm President of my HOA.
Would like to get back on a bike, just not sure what kind, so I'm looking into it. Swim in my pool most warm days and enjoy working on my tan. Warm, fresh air and the sweet sounds of nature make my day's troubles just melt away. Being outside has always been my happy place. Whether it be solo in my garden, or with a group of friends around a roaring camp fire or just lying in the grass having a little mid-afternoon shut eye- outside is were it's at for me. My lastest project, painting my kitchen. Hiking, working out at the gym. Enjoying Zumba.
Hoping to move north of the Bay Area in the next year or two working on down sizing.
