I love being in the mountains, that is my happy place. Whenever I need a break from life, that’s where I go.

Saturday plans: Lay in the sun a little bit and get new cycling shoes!

Happy places: The beach!!…and anywhere with my best friends where we can all be ourselves and laugh. All of our kids are the same age so it works out if we have to bring the kids, too.

Food that reminds me of my mom: Coke. I remember my mom drinking Cokes a lot as a kid but wasn’t allowed to have one because I couldn’t finish it so therefore it was considered a waste. It made me mad at the time but as an adult to find half-empty drinks sitting around…I get it now!

I’m heading there in a few to run my morning run. THE BEST! Hopefully my hip and hammy are healed up enough for this. K whoa, long comment. :)

Props to you Janae! Also, Brooke’s happy place is my happy place too. We have paintshops like that back in my hometown, and they always ease my mind. I am a five year old sometimes, I guess.
