I enjoy playing soccer, hiking, walking my dogs, and enjoying the outdoors as much as possible.
One things I do daily, is go on a walk right at sunset. It allows me to slow down, take in the day, and ground myself in that moment.
I have three dogs, two Pit Bulls and one German Shepherd. I have tons of stories to share, but my favorite story has to be when my Pit Bull jumped out of the truck window (it was open) to see me after not seeing me for two weeks while I was on vacation.
