FAVORITE THINGS: dance parties, climbing, hanging out with kids and their gigantic imaginations, learning new languages, craft beer, beyonce, snowboarding, quirky family traditions (apple schmere anyone?!), biking, hanging out with cats, flappy bird, collecting postcards, coffee, road trips with no particular destination, submersing into new cultures, and crashing into waves in the ocean.
