Family is center stage for most women and that's certainly true for me too! Daughter Gina lives in Los Angeles, son Graham in Newcastle and daughter Alexis in Boise. Traveling to visit each other and destinations around the world laughing, seeing a movie and walking on the beach keeps our connection close. We love having dinner at local eateries, tasting fine wine and expanding our culinary education. Gordon and I do our best not to ruin a good walk on the golf course.
