I am a native Californian, I grew up in Texas, and moved around 20 years as a military spouse. I lived in Texas, Arizona twice, Maryland, Germany (2 locations) and England before settling in Colorado. I like to go and experience things, and I like to come home! I am so thankful for the opportunity to have lived in Europe. I can't see too many castles, churches, or old buildings! I love the history and architecture that traveling in Europe provides. For me, one of the greatest ways to experience a new place or culture is through the food--you have to eat!
