If you had to be handcuffed to one person for a month, who would it be?
My sister, because we would entertain each other and probably be laughing the entire time. She is my BFF.
What do you do to relax?
I love to play competitive tennis (and win) and make to-do lists or packing lists.
If you could be a professional in any sport, what would it be?
Pro tennis player. I've played competitive since age 5. My mom always thought I would become a pro, but having fun in college and meeting my husband became more fun and important!
