Fun Facts

On your day off, what are you most likely to do?
I typically clean or work on a project around the house when I have a day off. Cleaning and organizing is a strange stress reliever for me.
If you went on a road trip, where would you go?
Nashville! I did it once and I would do it again. It was worth the 14 hour drive and sore legs. We saturated ourselves all around the city for several days but there was still so much more I would have loved to see. My favorite spot was Hatch Show Print, the oldest working letterpress shop in the US. I also hope someday to road trip around the Keys for our honeymoon but we continue to it push off. Several years ago my husband and I traveled from the Gulf Coast area over to Orlando and then down to West Palm Beach. It was exciting to explore each area along the way. We enjoy visiting Florida and look forward to relaxing on the beach.
What are you pet peeves?
Beige. I think beige is overused everywhere. It seems like every house inside and out is covered in beige. This world could use a lot less beige and a little more color. It’s pretty silly, but it bothers me.
