I believe in spending my hard-earned cash on adventures and experiences, especially travel...or products that speak to me very specifically, especially if ethically. I love the sunshine on my face as I discover new nooks, markets, books, art, and foods all around the world and I love to spend as much time as possible with my family, traveling and creating.
