My husband, Alan Carroll and I, Jolie Novak are in our early 40s and have a 9 year old daughter, Sadie. I am a Managing Photo Editor for AOL's Living websites and Alan is a freelance mural artist and decorative painter. Alan is from Dublin, but has lived in the states for over 14 years now. We love to travel and mostly go to visit his family in Ireland, but I lived in Paris for 4 years and am itching to get back there as well as visit other places as well!
We love the idea of a home/apt exchange as it offers others to come visit our lovely city in a different way and to really view what it is like to live here rather than just being a tourist in a hotel!
