My name is Kim and I've loved Christmas all my life.

In 2015, I was working as a college professor (27 years) and was really thrown a curve ball. I was diagnosed with ALS and had to end my career three years early. Fortunately, my progression has been very slow and I can still walk, eat, and drive.

I don't have family (except an 82-year old brother) so I had to move to a larger place so I could accommodate a caregiver. A long-time friend wanted to move to DB Shores so we both sold our homes and moved in together. We both had to part with many of our belongings. I had no idea how long I'd be on this earth, so I gave all my Christmas decorations to a close friend. I kept my nativity and it is quite large.

I just love seeing all the places decorated and the smells of Christmas.

I was born and raised in the Adirondacks so I've experienced the joy of the snow on Christmas Eve. It's magical.

Thank you for letting me into this wonderful group. I can't wait to explore it further.
