We also eat healthy and engage in healthy habits - no smoking, for example.

We are very eager to get to know you and see if we might be a right fit! Please note, our home is currently "for sale" so helping us keep it tidy after play is important. We live in Denver now but we are moving to Evergreen/Morrison area (hopefully by June 1) once we sell our home. For potential permanent candidates we want to be clear about this upfront!
