Q. What is your favorite vacation destination?
A. My favorite place to go with my husband is Paris in the spring. It is so romantic, the city is stunning, the food is insane and don't even get me started on the wine. Travis and I love to go there for kid-free vacations where we can reconnect and spend some quality time in the city of love. (First-time visitors) should definitely check out the tourist spots, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame and go shopping at Champs-Elysees. Some of my places to eat in Paris include Monsier Bleu (for the) great atmosphere and incredible people-watching. I also love L'Afflable with their seasonal menu and great wine.
Q. What was the first trip you took as a child?
A. My first trip as a child was to Walt Disney World in Florida. The hotel had a pool and I thought it was the coolest thing in the world. I remember leaving with the life goal of working as a Disney princess at the park one day.
Q. Have you traveled to a place that stood out so much that you felt compelled to incorporate it into your work?
A. My husband and I love Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, due to its convenience and gorgeous weather. We have been renting the same home there for four years and have recently started taking our employees there for a company trip. I think it's a great way for everyone to bond and it's such a treat to be able to say thank you for all their hard work by treating them to a vacation.
Q. Where are your favorite weekend getaways?
A. We love going to Austin. It's a three-hour drive and we have so many great friends who live there. The music scene is awesome and there are so many great spots to eat by the lake. I love how relaxed the people are, too, it's just a cool city.
