Hobbies and interests
Reading, traveling, visiting family. Not much time for anything else until I retire.
I became a mother on December 22, 2014, when I adopted my son, Kortlan. He is my first and only child, and between him, bridge and work, I am kept plenty busy. I also have four nieces and became a great-aunt last year.
