The Fun Stuff

Random thing about you? I am terrified of birds! 

Perfect Saturday? A long walk with my dog in the sun, followed by a really good iced coffee and a great book!

Funny family memory? My dad allowed my brother and me to play in huge mud puddles in our nicest clothes when our mom wasn’t watching!
