Favorite Drink

A glass of red wine or a cup of coffee. The coffee jump starts me and I love a glass of red wine around the dinner table, talking about my day with my family.

Favorite Movie

Father of the Bride. It was the first movie I saw in theaters and I went with my Dad. I think the planning bug started there, Thanks Dad!

One thing people are surprised to find out

I was a competitive Irish dancer. Yes, I still jig in my kitchen while making dinner and anywhere public to embarrass my sister!

Favorite Song

Fools Rush In by Elvis. It’s "our" song. The first time my husband told me he loved me was to this song.

Favorite thing to do

Dance with my husband! We both think we should have been teenagers in the fifties!

Things that make me smile the most

My kids. I get to have 3 amazing kids that teach me I’m not nearly as cool as they are.

If you could go anywhere

Italy. Not only did I marry an Italian but Italian food and culture is my absolute favorite! Pasta, cannoli’s, cappuccino, red wine, and the Tuscan sun…excuse me while I day dream!
