The Fun Stuff

Random thing about me? I was adopted when I was three years old.

Perfect Saturday? The beach with my family and chocolate Labrador retriever sounds lovely right about now.

Funny family memory? We used to have a beagle that would climb into any shower or bathtub. He enjoyed taking baths with my kids when they were little and he found any way possible to get into the bathroom! We have many photos of his bath time extravaganzas!
