I have always enjoyed reading and have rediscovered my love for it as I read to and with my kids. I love to cook and have ventured from my comfort zone of Asian foods to New Mexican cuisine. I'm not the sports type, but there is one sport that I very much like: swimming. I also enjoy traveling, hiking, and rafting with my husband and our two sons.
