What is something most people don’t know about you?
Describe your perfect day off?
All my favorite people meet me for a hike to a waterfall and swimming hole, where everyone gets free gelato and homemade cheesecake. We hop on horses and ride back down the trailhead, laughing and singing songs as we go. Upon returning home, I get a long, hot shower while listening to Yo-Yo-Ma. Someone does all the evening chores while I cozy into bed with whatever Bible study or book I’m currently reading. Either that, or my husband and I go back in time and re-do any family vacation we’ve ever had except we do it without kids.
Where’s the coolest place you’ve ever been?
The Alps in Switzerland and Austria. I don’t think anyone has ever needed to photo-shop a single photo from those locations!
