I claim Grass Valley, California since it sometimes shows up on a map but it’s actually a little community about 20 minutes away called Lake Wildwood. I grew up all over the world with a Dad who worked for the Air Force but ended up in California.
There are so many, but I would say just the simplicity of a small town.
Working at a little sandwich shop called June’s Deli. I still visit her when I’m home.
Cooking, sewing, photography, and card making.
Caring, Strong-willed, Honest, Creative, Driven
Anything with my family…hiking, camping, BBQing.
Smokin’ Fins in Downtown Littleton. Great food and drinks!
I’m heavily involved in my kids’ schools and support several animal charities.
A good friend and past colleague of mine, Courtney O’Neill. She is such a free spirit and follows her heart no matter how hard it is. She’s not afraid of the road less traveled. She’s one of the kindest, most down to earth people I know.
My kids. They are such loving, kind, smart people. They make the world a better place and give me hope for the future.
Happiness. Money and status don’t mean anything without stopping to enjoy life.
Marketing. It is still a huge part of what I do in real estate and what got me here.
Speaking another language. I spent time growing up in Germany where all the other kids spoke multiple languages from a young age. I just think it’s such a versatile skill and allows you to communicate and understand more of the world.
I’m not a very adventurous person…I would probably say in college when I used to do spontaneous road trips in the middle of the night. My mom used to get the midnight call of, “Hey Mom, just to let you know we’re headed to Vegas (or wherever it was). Call you when we get there!”
Mornings at our family cabin in the Sierras. The cabin has no electricity and is heated by wood stoves. My Grandpa would get up early and start breakfast. The kitchen stove pipe ran through the loft where my sister and I slept. We would carefully touch the pipe in the morning without getting out of our sleeping bags to see how hot it was to determine if it was time to get up. My Grandpa would make “hotcakes” and hot chocolate mixed with coffee for us. Still my favorite place in the world.
Randy Rogers Band at the Grizzly Rose a couple years ago. My husband surprised me with tickets for my birthday. It’s one of our favorite bands and we don’t have many date nights so the combination of all those factors were amazing!
Heartland on Netflix. Living on a ranch and working with horses all day? My dream life!
