****HAVE AS MUCH FUN AS POSSIBLE IN SANTA BARBARA!!!!
I am native to Santa Barbara and I think my hometown is paradise! I love biking, gardening and anything outdoors. I am a collector of sea glass and always love discovering a new view from the extensive Santa Barbara coastline. My husband and I have 7 children and 6 grandchildren and now empty nesters.
