1. What’s your favorite thing about West Virginia?

So many reasons come to mind for why I love WV, but my favorite would be having my family close. I also love having four seasons, admiring the mountains, and interacting with so many kind people.

2. What is your favorite place you have visited or travelled to?

My favorite vacation thus far has been a cruise along the southeastern portion of Alaska! It was such a neat experience hiking to glaciers, seeing humpback whales, fishing for salmon, and watching the dog-sled teams in action. I’m travelling to the Hawaiian island’s Kauai and Maui soon, and who knows, they may be a favorite as well!

3. What is your least favorite chore?

Vacuuming, however, I lucked out because my husband doesn’t mind it!
