I was born and raised in Chicago. I lived in Houston, Tx for seven years. I loved living out there but I was happy to come back home. I didn't want my children to call Texas their home (I guess that's selfish) . I love the changes of the seasons. I enjoy each season but do look forward to the next by the third month. I do not snow ski, though I tried when I was younger and I wasn't very good at it. I never water-ski, though it looks exciting, but I'm not sure if I would do it now. Though I'm afraid of heights (I have been on air planes in the past and was scared) , I am all of sudden curious about the hot-air balloon. I love to walk especially with someone to talk to while walking. I use to play tennis and I still like playing tennis though I'm not very good, but it's fun to get tired out. I love to dance when I can, read, and just relax around the house. I am a family oriented but I also like time for myself.
