Hi everyone! I stumbled across hubpages while doing a search for something and am so glad I did! What a great place.

I am a Brit by birth (Scottish parents but raised near London). I went to live in Paris as a young woman and met my husband, Bill, who was a U.S. Marine stationed at the Embassy. Oh that uniform has a lot to answer for! After only 2 months together, Bill went on to his next posting and to cut a long story short, we finally hooked up again semi-permanently a couple of years later and then married in 1990.

After a very expensive year in London, we moved to the U.S. so Bill could go to college more cheaply there. I ended up joining him and getting my U.S. degree in French/Art History. We lived, studied and worked for 14 years in Texas, which was a great place to live, if a little hot in the summer! A job opportunity brought us to the Washington D.C. area. Major "sticker shock" set in when we saw the price of houses compared to the Texas market. But here we are and we love it.

I have been a freelance web/print designer since 2000 and love the freedom of working from home. Before that I worked in the art world and before that for a major airline. Miss those cheap passes to Europe!

Looking forward to meeting lots of you here. Talk soon!
