I spend most of my time with my husband, my beautiful baby girl, Nellie and my extended 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, cuddling my baby girl, and walking with my German Shepherd, Kaiah.
