I'm Ohio born and raised, but 15 years in Las Vegas made me realize that slow-paced, small-town familiarity and interdependency is what neighborhoods lack in that city. Forest Grove, Oregon is where my husband, Craig and I enjoy simple comforts.
I'm a creative and vibrant wife, mother, grandma, friend and Heritage Maker with lots of p + s!
