I love Fall. The colours & smells of fall are like a warm hug. I also love wearing sweaters & boots so...
I LOVE to travel & am fortunate to have gone on a few remarkable trips. My favourite has to be Vienna or maybe New Orleans or Oceanside...Spain or maybe them all!
Fresh baked, ooey-gooey, chocolate fudge brownies. I also will never turn down a fresh baked cinnamon roll - YUM!

I enjoy the outdoors and getting out of the city. In my spare time you can usually find me hiking, camping, and spending time with friends and family - with rose wine.
