It is only my husband and I that live here: I am a Sommelier(huge wine fridge in dining room) and he is a IT Consultant. We are very active and love to travel and drink great wine and food. A bit of foodies ourselves; we thrive on gourmet restaurants and dine out three times a week. We do not have any pets so no allergies to avoid. Johnathan plays hockey three to four times a week(hockey is huge in Canada)and I practice my yoga each day. We are mid-thirties couple with no children or pets, love to dance, drink, eat and be merry. Johnathan speaks both French and English and I (Susan)am now learning French.
