Reading, enjoying all Colorado has to offer with my kids, family vacations, skiing (think greens and blues ;-)
My husband, Matthew, and I have three children. Like most children, they have their own unique personalities and interests and they keep us on our toes. We enjoy spending most of our free time together and value all the learning opportunities that life has to offer.
Our dog of 14 years passed away last year, so we are contemplating a good time to add a new four-legged friend to our family. We have a fish tank with different fresh water fish and our children love spotting new baby fish in the tank.
