Now we are back in the RV, visiting my family and friends in our RV for two months, and with that big change in lifestyle, I need motivation to keep up my goals of eating healthy and staying active. I am glad to have chosen to turn to SparkPeople once again to give and receive motivation from this great website and dear, online friends!

Personal Information:
I'm Amy, originally from southeastern PA, but after selling our home of 23 years, we moved to central Florida and hope to RV in the summer months. I am adjusting to an early retirement after teaching for 30 years. I've been married to my husband, Dave for almost 26 years, and we have a 25 yo son named Sean and two adorable and feisty Cairn terriers, Max and Sophie.

Other Information:
I enjoy a variety of different activities from reading and computer-time to hiking and traveling. I am a never-ending proponent of personal development.

emoticon or taking the time to look at my blog and respond to it. I definitely miss my hometown. When you get a chance to RV through Colorado you'll love it! There are soooo many beautiful places to see in Colorado and so many things to do.

Thanks for the congrats on my upcoming great nephew. It's not under the best of circumstances. I just hope for the best for my niece and soon to be great nephew.
