Travel/road trips (can't wait to go places when it's safe again:), reading (currently studying Moonology- ask me about it), hiking, yoga, making functional art, listening to music and podcasts, and spending time with those I love.
Here's a quote from Maya Angelou that inspires me, hope it does for you too!
"People will forget what you said, they will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel."
I look forward to connecting with you. Please email me to make an appointment (firstname.lastname@example.org), and stay posted for my virtual office.
