Last book you read: “Eat that Frog” by Brian Tracy.

Favorite book: I can get lost in almost any book written by Nicholas Sparks.

Favorite meal: I love Tex-Mex so any way that you can grill onions, peppers and chicken will work for me.

Most cherished possession: I have many but most of them involve Christmas ornaments made by my children when they were between the ages of 2 and 10.  I absolutely love unwrapping them every year and placing them on a tree made especially from ornaments surrounding them.

Most enjoyed weekend activity: Lying beside a pool, reading a book and watching the kids play…but that rarely ever happens. What I enjoy most on a regular basis is when we (McKenzie, Trey, Buddy and I) are just being silly and experiencing a bottom of your gut laugh out loud moment that makes you cry tears of joy. Both of my kids are pretty good at making that happen.

Favorite quote: “Good, Better, Best…never let it rest, until your good is better and your better is best.”  – St. Jerome

No. 1 vacation spot: Anywhere with a beach. We visit Alabama most often but Ocho Rios, Jamaica, is by far my favorite so far.

Favorite place in Arkansas: We love being outdoors in Arkansas so I have several. Favorite mountain is Petit Jean. Favorite body of water is Greers Ferry. I also love the 412 scenic bypass between Springdale and Harrison.

What do you love about living in the 501: I like that it is within minutes to almost anything you might want to do: shopping, unique restaurants, mountains, lakes, sporting events…you name it. I also like that people in the 501 are not only kind but they are neighborly. But most importantly, I like being near family.
