My favorite travel memory
When I was six months pregnant with my first child, my husband and I backpacked through Croatia. When we booked the flight, I wasn’t pregnant and I was a bit nervous traveling so pregnant far away from home. But it was an amazing experience – like here – the Croatians were so kind to me! Old ladies would come up and touch my belly, offering blessings. Young men would offer up seats on the bus or in restaurants. Croatia is a beautiful country with beautiful people.
My hobbies and pastimes
I am obsessed with taking care of my two children. Their attitudes and character are always so genuine, they are inspiring. I also am very active at our church leading a couple small groups. Spending time with friends and family, watching movies with my hubby and planning other people’s vacations are all things I enjoy doing.
My favorite book
Before kids I loved serious/dramatic books like A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving and The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara. But now I like to read more to relax and take my mind away. So I was part of many who went crazy for Harry Potter and Twilight. They were both well-written series, with interesting characters and completely fictional!
