What makes you smile?
Watching my husband return home after a long 8 month deployment! It's hard to put into words what it felt like to be in my husbands arms again while introducing him to his beautiful newborn boy and girl twins. Itís a feeling of overwhelming joy, pride, relief, and all my prayers answered. A smile I will cherish. I am a proud wife of a pilot actively serving the United States Marine Corps.
Describe a date night with your husband...
As a military wife, a date night can sometimes simply be a phone call or even an email considering my husbandís hectic military schedule. Any undivided time with my Marine husband is cherished. When my husband is home, our new favorite Virginia date night involves a seafood boil on the patio in our backyard under a sea of twinkling white lights. And some Johnny Cash music playing in the background. Virginia really is for Lovers!
How do you relax?
My daily choice of relaxation comes in the fast pace form of long distance running along the coastal beaches of Virginia Beach. As an athlete and former Fox SportsNet Sportscaster, I enjoy the ongoing challenge of long distance running as it clears my head and helps me maintain a healthy lifestyle that I need to be able to physically keep up with my beautiful and busy 2 year old twins!
Describe your personal style...
Sporty EleganceÖ I love wearing high heels while cooking dinner for my family. I love singing show tunes while hiking the hills of Virginia. Iím a former sports reporter who can talk football for days. I love to make my children giggle. When in doubt, I always wear rhinestones while Iím out fly fishing in Idaho! Life is too short and as Marilyn Monroe once said, ďItís better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.Ē
