I am original Valley Girl, born & bred. Born in the Van Nuys Hospital on Van Nuys Blvd in Van Nuys, CA. Yes, as a kid we used to cruise Van Nuys Blvd and eat at Bob's Big Boy. Married in 1971 at 19 yrs old, we had 3 children (2 boys, 1 girl) and spent the next 20 years working together on the carnival. We divorced in 2005 and he passed away in 2007. I recently retired after working in public education for over 18 years. I love cooking and especially big family dinners. Holidays are my fav. I used to host the Xmas/Thxgvng dinners (20+ folks!). Wonderful times! Thanks for stopping by!
