We have a lot going on, and it may be chaotic at times, but our home is full of love.

Personal Information:

I love to catfish. My dad taught me when I was a little girl, and I have enjoyed catfishing ever since. I also love to read books. I am currently rereading the classic “Dracula” for the first time. My family loves to travel. We traveled all around the state of Arkansas this summer.. We went camping and visited the Diamond mine (no luck though), we visited Mid-America Science Museum, went shopping in Hot Springs and Little Rock, and visited the Clinton Library and the state capital building. It was an amazing trip to beautiful places.  My favorite vacation spots are Disney World and Gulf Shores.
