When I'm not working I love to spend time with my family either running around to the kids' activities or entertaining friends and family at our house. When my family is busy I enjoy reading, mostly non-fiction books about sociology, economics, behavioral studies, urban planning and business, but every once in a while I sit down with a classic novel. In the spring & summer I play on my church's softball team. And when the dead of winter sets in I like to spend time researching and planning our next trip. I absolutely love escaping the cold Minnesota winter to a warm beach somewhere.
