4. What’s a unique bucket list item you’ve always wanted to check off?I want to be a part of a flash mob, so badly. I think it would be so fun, and what joy it could bring to someone’s day!

6. If you could travel anywhere across the globe for a vacation, where would it be?I haven’t done much traveling, and I know that the U.S. has so much beauty, that I would love to do an RV trip around the country.

8. How often do you think you pick up your phone every day?I don’t even know, it’s so much. I have been trying to not click on social media when I pick up my phone and click on the YouVersion Bible app instead, and let that give me a boost of energy instead of scrolling.
9. What’s your biggest pet peeve?When I can hear loud eaters/chewers. My bestie loves to chew ice, and sometimes I want to squeeze her!
