I want to learn how to fly a plane.

Fall (and not just because I love leggings and flannel) but because of Football, the mountain view with the different color leaves, and it leads into the Holiday season!

Hands down Amy Schumer! I feel like we would the perfect duo.

My favorite part of Weddings is walking a Bride up to our Deck and getting to spend those last few seconds of excitement with her before she walks down the aisle.
