What's Your Passion?

I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, and our two dogs. This usually involves participating in one of our old house restoration projects, hanging out at car shows, or watching as the guys tinker with their hot rods. I also enjoy spending time in the garden, baking, bike riding, and walking our dogs.
