The Fun Stuff

Random thing about you? I usually paint my fingernails blue or purple.

Funny family memory? My daughter’s first sentence was “Water will feels you better,” because her mom is a nurse.

Perfect Saturday? Make breakfast for my kids, read while I slowly enjoy my coffee, then go hiking or to a museum with my family.
