Passions/InterestsI love learning though and continue taking online classes and keep up with the state requirements for the early learning department. My husband, Steve and I love learning about wine and food. I research chefs and restaurants and always have a wish list ready when we travel. We both enjoy golf although Steve is good but I have more fun! Actually he is wonderful to play with and is my biggest cheerleader. We have a wonderful circle of friends and commit to making sure that we nurture that with game nights, costume parties, holiday parties, cooking events and wine tasting. We are missing this now but are doing our best to keep close to them even if we can't do so in person.
