I enjoy playing piano, reading, writing, being in nature, and board game nights with friends.
I go on walks with my family. I also take time to enjoy my coffee.
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson is my most recent re-read. I love his writing! I can also quote The Very Hungry Caterpillar because my child enjoys re-reading it.
The Environmental Defense Fund because our planet needs protecting.
I like to paint my nails, spend time with friends and family, and plan fun trips.
