We are settled here in central Florida, and while we intend to RV in the summer months, this year we are staying until my dh has totally recuperated from two knee replacement surgeries. This is giving me the opportunity to focus on my healthy habits that need to be life-long, not just for the time I am trying to get to my goal weight. I am grateful for all that ...

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.

Wanna be understood? .....Explain
Have questions? .....Ask
Don't like something? ....Say it

Thank you for allowing me to share my love for my precious Kyleigh, she is a precious gem to Nana as are all of my other grands. I never realized when I had my own children that I could love someone else's child so much ---grandkids are truly special.
