You have so many hobbies, how did you become so creative?
Well.... might be kind of a long answer but to start, some of you who don't already know I'm an only child and my mom decided to put me in ballet when I was 3 years old to get me into an activity and meet friends before starting school, that's what started my dance and cheerleading career. It was my outlet, it was my safe place in adolescence. In high school I turned our kitchen into a dance studio so whenever things were hard or I just wanted an escape I just went to my little studio, blast my music and dance my heart out. As for everything else I think most of my passions just run in my family. My dad owns a Graphics Design Company (his side of the family are all really good artists and outdoor sports enthusiasts) his business is where I was fortunate enough to grow up. Instead of ever having to go to daycare or home after school by myself I was able to go to his business and create anything I could imagine. I'm very thankful for their business and how I was able to grow up because of it. My mom's side of the family, however, are all musicians. Music has always been the center of my world ever since I was born. As a whole being creative has the same core, just different outlets. I feel like I use 100% of the right side of my brain and 0% of my left side LOL. I just really love creating anything and everything I possibly can. That's also why I'm so thankful to have married Ryan, he's the exact opposite! He was a former diesel mechanic and now a technical trainer for Caterpillar Company and is a total (smarty pants) numbers guy. I don't know what I would do without him! When we put our strengths together we create a great team. <3
