Favorite thing to eat at the market: My favorite thing to eat at the market is peaches. Growing up in central Texas we waited every year for peaches to arrive and I still get super excited to see them at the market for the first time each year. Second favorite thing is okra – I love it cooked on the grill.

Fun Fact: I love to camp and hike. My husband and I spent six weeks traveling the country and camping (in a tent!) visiting a lot of state and national parks. It was truly an unforgettable experience. Since then we’ve upgraded our shelter to our ’97 Casita trailer and love to visit all the awesome state parks nearby.

Fun Fact: I’m a photographer in my spare time, and studied film photography in school. I love spending hours in a darkroom listening to music and developing my own film whenever I can.
