Hi, I'm Rose. I was born in Vienna, Austria and lived in Germany also until I was about 6 years old.  My father studied music and sang opera in Europe and that's why we lived there.  My parents divorced and I grew up with my mom, 2 sisters and 3 brothers.  We were very poor, but our Christian faith kept us strong in spirit.  I served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when I was 21.  I was able to go to Okinawa, Japan for over a year.  I loved the language and people so much that I continued to study Japanese in college.  I worked as a certified pharmacy technician to get me through college.  I planned on becoming a pharmacist and also took chemistry and many 'pre-med' classes.  I graduated with a degree in Japanese with a minor in chemistry.  I feel like I'm all mixed up some days.  I spoke German as a child, English as I grew up, and Japanese as a young adult.  I did a lot of math and science as a pharmacy technician and yet graduated in Japanese.  I'm still trying to figure out what I'm supposed to be when I grow up.  Nevertheless, I am a mother of four.  I am a stay at home mom even though we struggle to make ends meet.  I just feel it is important to be there for my kids.  My childhood was much different than that.  I try hard to keep my marriage alive.  I have been through a lot of trials with marriage considering my childhood and the world we live in.  I enjoy singing like my father did.  My grandfather taught me to love flower gardening.  I am interested in what makes people healthy, especially considering food choices.  I enjoy Jane Austen's novels  because they send me to a time far away and always have such great stories about love.
