    One of my goals is to see all the United States National Parks! So far I have been to Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, and the Great Smoky Mountains.
    I love to experiment with recipes, especially those for different types of breads!
    I'm always on the lookout for new vinyl to add to my ever-growing collection. The genre that I collect the most of is classic rock!
