I spend most of my time with my husband and my large family! With these treasured people in my life, I love traveling to the mountains to hike and ski or to the beaches to relax! I also enjoy our time together while cooking, sharing recipes, crafting or refurbishing wood.
When I have down time, I love reading, watching a great movie, and jogging with my German Shepherd, Kaiah.
