List three words that describe a successful journey:

Passion, Happiness, and Family

Describe the longest road trip you’ve been on:

The summer I turned 16 my parents took me and my three younger siblings on a three-week road trip out west. We headed west to Colorado and Utah, then north to Wyoming through the Grand Tetons, and we took the northern route home. Six people and all our luggage in a station wagon. It was a fantastic trip (we hardly fought at all), and an excellent example of planning by my parents!

What brings you joy?

  1. Making art
  2. Camping with my sister and nephews
  3. Taking the time to listen to someone that needs to be heard
