The Fun Stuff

Random thing about me? I was a beekeeper for a year, and plan to do it again in the future!

Perfect Saturday? Sleep in late, make breakfast, and go out for the day to hike and have a picnic. 

Funny family memory? At a holiday dinner, my dad went to shake up a bottle of juice but the top wasn’t screwed on. He soaked himself and everyone near him!
