I enjoy chalk painting furniture and find myself flea market shopping often. I love to make old things new with some paint and TLC. When I am not working I enjoy time with my family, attending church, traveling, spending hot days by the pool, going to the beach, and hanging with my friends. I love photography and photo journal often. My family enjoys musical theater and we love to attend musicals together often. I am a die hard Razorback fan and love to CALL THE HOGS!
