My husband and I moved to England in June 2006 from San Diego, CA. I grew up in the Seattle area and he's originally from LA. I enjoy a bunch of things - many of which I haven't added to 'interests' yet.

I sometimes do friends only posts. I sometimes rant. I sometimes don't get to comment as much as I'd like. I always like adding friends!
