Hello! I am a dental hygienist in Orange County, CA. I live with two of my children, although one of them is away at college for the majority of the year. My eldest lives close by. I am half Lebanese and grew up in Charleston, WV celebrating Middle Eastern culture and the importance of family. I attended boarding school, studied art and art history in Italy, and went to college in the Midwest. I traveled extensively during my single years and have always loved visiting other countries. I have lived in Southern California since 1971, yet somehow still miss the four seasons after all of these years. I am one who appreciates family, friends, and faith. Simple things in life which bring me joy include music, cooking, entertaining, college sporting events, fine dining, intellectual conversation, and laughter. I'll leave you with a quote: "The true mark of success is that the world is a better place because you have lived."
