The Fun Stuff

Random thing about you? In college, I operated a cookie company with one of my roommates out of our apartment.

Perfect Saturday? Uninterrupted sleep and no alarm, snuggles with my family in bed, a family hike, and a delicious meal that I didn’t need to prepare or clean up!

Funny family memory? I have very curly hair. In elementary school, I was insistent on trying to style it with a curling iron like my friends. It got stuck and I had to have it cut out at a hair salon, resulting in an Alfalfa-like cowlick while it grew out.
