My name is Beth and my husband calls me Gracie....we've been married 21 years this month and we have a glorious 7 year old daughter, adopted at birth, Betsy Rose.
I was born in Indiana and lived in various places in the state until I was 20. Then a disastrous first marriage took me through the Army wife days and I lived in KY and DC and other places for a while.
I met Grizzy when we were 23 and he was my neighbor and we could not STAND each other at first.
We lived in Michigan until June, and now we're back in Indiana, although a different place than either of us lived before, but it's only one county away from where I grew up so it doesn't seem all that strange. We live on an island in a nicely shabby little lake house, and love it.
I have, at times, been an aerobics instructor, a diet counselor, a nanny, a rental agent, a floral designer, a journalist, a camp cook and a bookseller.
I have a webpage here: www.xanga.com/GracieBC
and there's pictures of me and my family there.
I started reading the Sterns in the mid 80s and have loved any and everything they write ever since...
