Married to Tony, child-free, blissfully ensconced in the French Quarter along with the six incorrigible but adorable cats featured in my albums.
As for perfume, I've loved it all of my life, literally as far back as I can remember; one of my first memories is of my mother kissing me goodnight before my parents went out for the evening ...a Chanel No5-scented memory. I started my own collection when I was about three, with those Tinkerbell sets and Avon novelties for little girls but, coming from a long line of avid perfume-lovers, I was always aware of "proper" perfumes and was absolutely over-the-moon when I received my first real perfumes at six, a set of minis that included Chamade and Infini, two favorites that I still love and wear quite frequently.
My other interests include music, most importantly. My parents are both musicians, as are my brother and I, and music has always been a big part of my life. My favorite instrument is the piano, and I've somehow managed to make a part-time job of it accompanying tiny-tot ballet classes, which is so much fun I have a hard time considering it work. :)
I also love to cook, and I take all sorts of classes to learn everything I can about our favorite world cuisines. And we love to travel, which not only enriches our lives and broadens our perspectives, but gives me a good idea of which cooking classes I might want to take when we get home! And I love to eat, so I exercise a lot ...regular ballet, barre, and running help, but my favorite way to stay fit and active is playing tennis. Playing or watching tennis accounts for much of my free time. Reading takes up most of the rest.
Travel, tennis, ballet, music, reading and cooking (...and eating!)
I'm a barre instructor and piano accompanist for a ballet academy.

And while thy breeze floats o'er thee, matchless flower, I breathe thy perfume, delicate and strong,
That comes like incense from thy petal-bower; My fancy roams those southern woods along... Christopher Pearse Cranch - Magnolia Grandiflora, 1875
