I am happily married to my best friend, Dale Kimmes (man on left of photo above) and I often travel north with him and his brother, Gary Kimmes, also a very dear friend (man on right  of photo above).  I am in the middle.  We balance one another out really well and our vacations north are often full of adventure because we all like to explore and discover new places!

I am not an athletic person, but I do enjoy a good hike, climbing on the rocks on the shoreline, and listening to the rhythm of the waves and the song of the loons and seagulls.  I journal, write, paint, sketch and create at my best when I am on the shore.
