My husband and I celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary on October 4, 2012. We were born and raised in Western New York where we raised our 3 now grown children. We and our family moved to Henniker, New Hampshire in 1989. We love the convenience both summer and winter outdoor activities this area has to offer, including: hiking, snow skiing, water skiing, and biking. Not totally retired yet, we continue to make more time to visit our children and 7 grandchildren in both the Phoenix and Dallas areas as often as we can. Arizona has gradually become home to us as well. The southwest has so much of its own beauty to offer us.
