The Fun Stuff

Random thing about you? At the beach, I will stare at the ocean for hours until I see dolphins — and I always do.

Funny family memory? Every year on Christmas Eve, my dad will bring the gifts he got for my mom to me to wrap because he is not a great gift wrapper. This tradition has been happening since I was in high school and to our knowledge, she still doesn’t know about it.

Perfect Saturday? Relaxing outside on a nice day with my husband and dogs, then going to dinner and a movie with friends.
