Born and raised in the small oil town of Taft, California. Married and moved to the big town of Bakersfield, only 30 miles away. After a few years we moved to the jungle and lived in Duri, Sumatra, Indonesia for 5.5 years, then to Dallas, Texas, Midland Texas, & Mandeville, Louisiana for 3 years each. Then back to Bakersfield, CA for 10 years, and then hubby & I moved to Venezuela for 3.5 years and Kuwait for 2 years, returning back to Bakersfield in July 2015. We have recently purchased land up in Sequim, Washington where we will be moving to in 2017. So looking forward to cooling summers in Washington!!
