I've been to 48 states. I only have Alaska and Hawaii left (the hardest ones, of course.

I really want to live in Hawaii or somewhere warm for a few months of the year. Duluth winters are hard on me. 

My husband and I love renovating houses. We're currently renovating our second one. 

My husband and I got married 11 months after we met. 

My love language is giving books to people.
