Personal Quotes (3)

I'm a big nature geek. I like being out in nature.
I'm constantly in transit for work, and I feel like sometimes my suitcase is the closest thing I have to home. I've become good at living sparsely, and making a hotel room feel like home - putting family photos up on the wall, and a candle can make all the difference.
