    I am a HUGE Harry Potter Fan!

    My aunt even decorated wine glasses for me with Harry Potter references on them a few Christmases ago. Oh, and part of my honeymoon may or may not include going to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

    Coffee is Life

    Coffee is how I make it through every day. And working as a barista for most of my years in college didn’t help that addiction! As a result, I have an insane amount of coffee mugs that I’ve gotten as gifts.

    The Best Drink: Margaritas

    Funny story: When I turned 21 I had a party at a Mexican restaurant in my college town. My fiance, my boyfriend at the time, bought me a margarita because I was so excited to try one. And I HATED it! He had to finish it for me! And now it’s one of my favorite drinks.

    But I Also Can’t Pass Up Checking Out Breweries

    I blame my fiance for this new love. I really enjoy checking out breweries because you can drink a beer in the exact same building it was made in. So if you have a good brewery recommendation, let me know!
