Any vacation right now - 5 active days, outside with family and great friends.
Something physical - yoga, soul cycle, walk/run, swim - it clears my head, makes me happy, keeps me sane - it’s my caffeine!
To Kill a Mockingbird. I was Scout at first reading, now I relate to Atticus - the greatest influence on my life, it fueled my passion for social justice.
While not a podcast, I have to say Carpool Karaoke with James Corden is such fun; if anyone hasn’t seen Paul McCartney with Corden, it’s a MUST SEE!
I'd love to be able to speak every language…and slow time down, of course.
