I'm a stay at home mom and I home school my son. I was in the Navy active duty for 4 years. My first duty station was Naples, Italy for 2 years. Loved living there! I met my husband in the Navy in Charleston, SC. Loved Charleston with all the history and beautiful beaches. We still go back and visit friends as often as we can. We were both active duty and working near each other on base. We now live back in Illinois, which is where I am from, to be close to family. We have lots of wineries here and I love visiting them and trying out the local wines. I love the outdoors, and l love going hiking and bike riding.
Oh, and love some Rat Pack music too!
My fav moives are romantic comedies, and love stories, as long as they don't make me cry too much. I like the happy ending. Life has enough sad endings. My fav old movies are:
It's a Wonderful Life
Fried Green Tomatoes
Dirty, Rotten, Scoundrels
I also love old Charlie Chann movies that I used to watch with my dad when I was younger.
Parenthood- I loved this show and cried most of the way through it. Happy tears and sad. I have many parallels with this show (as many people have) and some I wish I had. It was beautiful seeing how a loving family and forgiveness work. If you have that, be thankful. I thought they did a great job showing reality of life and not just sugar coating it.
