I enjoy working in my yard, walking, hiking, traveling, exploring new areas, and trying new restaurants. My favorite places in the Pacific Northwest to visit are Silver Falls and the dunes at Cape Kawanda in Pacific City, but I love it when I find beautiful sites I have never seen before.

I also love listening and dancing to blues/jazz music. My favorite places to go are Blue Diamond, Arrivederci, and Clyde’s Prime Rib. They all have good music and good food! I also enjoy trying new venues and listening to bands I have not heard before.

Last, but certainly not least, I love spending time with my three daughters and my grandchildren! They truly light up my life.
