Favorite hobbies are on beautiful days the hubby and I love to be out on the motorcycle and enjoy concerts – almost an addiction. Otherwise, we love to kick back with a fire in the fire pit and just chill. We met Dianne and Brad 10 years ago at the first poker run that AMF (at the time Living Life with Autism) did and they’ve been stuck with us since.
