Ugh. I love both equally but the mountains usually refrain from giving me sunburn so that puts them a little over the edge!

PASTA AND BREAD, yes lord!

21. What is your favorite quote or piece of advice?
My mom told me when I was getting recruited to play softball in college "go where you are wanted" and that has rung true for most things in my life so far. But also prayed this verse over me my senior year of high school, Luke 1:45 "Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!" The whole passage this particular verse is found in Luke is one of my very favorites!
