The Fun Stuff
Random thing about you? I have studied and/or lived in three countries: the United States, Spain, and Bahrain.
Super power you’d like to have? To be invisible.
Perfect Saturday? A hot cup of coffee in hand while my family and I stroll through the farmers market, followed by an afternoon park date to enjoy the sunny, fall weather, and a cozy steak dinner and glass of red wine as we watch a MN Wild game.
