Favorite quote:My love for the mountains are reflected in this John Muir quote, “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn”.

What are your hobbies?I love to try new recipes, go for long walks, sing for fun, and be “crafty”.
