I also enjoy drinking tea, gardening, hiking, running, canoeing, camping, and, of course, spending quality time with my husband and daughters.

If you have a question about anything, please convo me. I am open to custom requests and would love to work with you on any project. I'd love to hear from you.

Thank you for stopping by!
