What is your current job? Or what did you do before staying at home? Before I was a SAHM I was a barista at a coffee stand, Northern Espresso in Bothell! I enjoyed the every day interaction and networking with customers, the owner and co-workers and community became an extension of my Edmonds residence. Although I thought I'd go back after having Carleen, I couldn't imagine anything different. I'll fill in when they need a shift covered, that's always fun!

What is your dream family vacation? Dream family vacation would be to Carmel/Monterey, CA to share my most favorite place in the world Michael and Carleen
Fondest childhood memory - My trip to Carmel, CA. I got to spend part of my summer with my aunt and uncle and they took me to Carmel where they rented a beautiful home, I remember white sandy beaches, driftwood perfect for balance walking on, sitting and taking pictures on, deer walking close by, beautiful cypress trees, a carousel, and being the only kid there, so, spoiled with love and all the attention :)
