My husband and I have been volunteering in our community with the Christmas is for Kids gift drive since 1993. To relax, we love traveling and have visited Prague, London, Stratford Upon Avon, Wales, Rome, Florence, Vienna, Budapest, Paris and lots of beautiful small towns in between. Closer to home, we love Asheville, NC and the New England beaches. We go with friends into Providence for dinner on Federal Hill and shows at PPAC. When I have some time on my own, I read everything from the classics to contemporary fiction, pausing over the Brontes, Jane Austen and Ayn Rand. On a sunny day, you might find me in the garden of our 1720 home.
