My husband, John, and I have been blessed with three daughters, Sylvia, Evelyn and Adeline (all three of whom attend Holy Cross). Together we love and snuggle our two Rottweilers, Sadie and Schatzie, and enjoy spending time at our cottage in Door County. We love traveling, spending time with our Morgan Horses and hang outdoors both around our home and beyond.

We discussed some vocab from the song –

Do you hear those words?

¡Me gusta bailar!  Tell us if you like or don’t like to dance the salsa.
