And that’s not all. Here are a few of her favorite things...

  • Family
  • Dancing
  • Sports
  • Lemons
  • Travel
  • Live Music
  • Peonies
  • Moving
  • Serving Southern Roots

"I’m citrus obsessed! I have a fresh lemon in my water every single day!"
"Took my first flight when I was less than one year old...haven’t stopped."
