WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST EPIC LIFE EXPERIENCE?
My entire family traveled to Alaska in June of 2016. We spent nine days exploring the Denali National Forrest, Fairbanks, and enjoyed a glacier boat tour from Valdez to Anchorage. The wildlife and scenery were breathtaking and I would go back in a heartbeat!!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE TO LIVE BY?
IF YOU HAD TO EAT THE SAME MEAL EVERYDAY FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Definitely mac and cheese. Everything is better with cheese.
WHAT IS YOUR WORST HABIT?
I drink waaay too much diet pepsi.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE CHILDHOOD MEMORY?
My grandparents owned a Christmas tree farm called Cozy Nook. I loved going there every day after school to help greet people and give out free hot chocolate. Of course I am biased, but you don’t have a Christmas tree unless it’s real.
IF YOU COULD MAKE ONE WISH WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I would wish to time travel so I could go back to my favorite memories and see all the important times in history. Plus seeing the future would be awesome too.
