I’m a very proud mother of two daughters. The oldest one lives in LA and is an amazing writer. She decided to head back to school for her Masters. And our youngest ventured to Boise State University and is enjoying college life in one of the hottest real estate cities in the country.
However, we are not completely without responsibility, we have two fun-loving fur babies: Lulu a Frenchie and a rescue, a German Short Haired Pointer named Crusoe who loves long walks, visits to the dog park, snuggling, new stuffies and as many dog treats as possible.
And to top it off my amazing, loving husband, Frank. We met as neighbors and never looked back. We wed in 2010 and after living in Greenlake and Wedgwood neighborhoods we currently reside in Cedar Park. I am often asked, “where the heck is Cedar Park?”. The answer is Northeast Seattle sandwiched between Lake Forest Park and Matthews Beach along Sand Point Way. It’s an up and coming neighborhood with a farmers market, local shops, and lots of beautiful greenery.

About 6 years ago we discovered our home in Cedar Park where we are restoring our 1927 Mediterranean-style home designd by architect William Bain. We call it FranMo Urban Farm and it sits on a conservation parcel that hosts a "Champion" Cedrus Deadora tree (10' in diameter and 100+ years old) and more than a dozen heritage trees, seasonal flowering plants, and a bountiful vegetable garden.
Each season we start Heirloom Tomato plants for the Seattle Giving Garden Network (Magnuson Park P-Patch) which will be harvested and donated to the neighborhood food bank.
