One Last Thing with Linea

Last big purchase: We recently replaced our old vehicle with a new one. It’s been fun to see how far they have come with technology in vehicles. It sounds ridiculous, but we have wifi in our SUV!

Last family vacation: Our last family vacation was our kid’s first trip to Walt Disney World in Florida. We went at Christmas time and it was so fun to see the decorations and to see our kids experiencing the magic. They really enjoyed meeting all the characters and our daughter rode her first roller coaster. I think she’s still not sure whether or not she liked it. We had so much fun that we are planning a trip back next year!

Favorite memory from last year: I can’t say there’s one specific thing that sticks out, but I’m at the point in my life where a lot of my free time revolves around my kids. I would say my favorite part of the past year has been watching them grow up and learn new things.

Movie that left a lasting impression: I’m a big fantasy and sci-fi fan, so some of my favorite movies are the Lord of the Rings trilogy (also some of my favorite books!), and my husband and I recently watched all of the Star Wars movies in order, which I really enjoyed. I had seen the original movies from the ’70s and at least one of the prequels when I was younger but hadn’t seen any of the newer movies until more recently. Our son has decided that he’s a big Star Wars fan, so it has been fun to get a better understanding of the different characters and storylines and to play “lightsaber battle” with him.

Last sport I played: It’s been a while, but I played volleyball for a couple of years in college and then continued to play in adult leagues and tournaments when I was still in school. Since we’ve had kids, I haven’t had a lot of time to continue playing. I do enjoy getting out golfing a few times a year, but I haven’t played very consistently.
