Fun or Interesting FactEvery year I try to learn how to do something new. Recently, I've learned how to sew (I made the window treatments for my house and superhero capes for my nephews!). I've also learned how to golf (not very well...but I have fun!) and got certified to SCUBA dive (I dove a 100 feet to a ship wreck off the coast of Oahu in Hawaii).
Favorite College MemoryThere's too many to choose from, but I know they all include serious amounts of laughter!
Why I love HopeI love Hope because of all the amazing people it brought into my life!
