Random fun facts and why

  • Mountains or the beach?
    I have to say beaches. I grew up in Traverse City, Michigan, and spent so much time on the beach with friends and family. My favorite beach is Peterson Road Beach. After swimming in Lake Michigan, we would roast hotdogs over a bonfire there and stay up all night stargazing with the whole beach to ourselves.
