Personal

I just recently moved from Oregon down to Florida, where my husband grew up. Most
things we do together like: 
kayaking, fishing, going on long hikes with our two rescue
pups, watching movies, trail riding in our side-by-side and going to the beaches. I also
spend a good amount of time baking and gardening. Recently, I started painting and
interior designing.
