  • Description


    We are a family of 4: 2 adults and 2 teenagers. We are a professional couple (work in healthcare) that has a passion for a holistic lifestyle, specifically Ayurveda and martial arts (judo/jujitsu). We love the outdoors, watching a good movie and having a great meal. We are hard working but love to relax as well. We have 3 pet ducks that we love. We love watching them waddle around the yard! We are non substance users- we do not smoke or use drugs. We are easy going and welcoming. I need some help to do basic chores around the house- light house keeping, laundry. meal prep.
