We are a married couple in our 50s with 2 daughters. I have been an office manager for 4 labour arbitrators for the past 14 years and my husband has been employed with the federal gov't for more than 30 years. Our daughters are in university and sometimes travel with us and both play basketball, volleyball & baseball and enjoy sports generally. My husband and I enjoy time with family & friends, music, baseball, yoga, travelling, walking, entertaining, movies, good food & wine.
We have had a successful exchange with a family from Ireland and I can provide their email as they thoroughly enjoyed our home and neighborhood and wished they lived here.
We sometimes travel with friends and you would be welcome to invite friends with you when enjoying our home.
