Who am I?

I am happily married for over 24 years and we have 2 wonderful sons. My oldest

son is in college and and my youngest is in 10th grade. I enjoy
spending time with my family doing anything outdoors, especially going to the
beach! Our family also loves animals- we have two dogs Winston
and Tigger, and two rabbits named Rex and Lola.
