After a decade in radio, moving across the country, and scrambling from state to state to chase the next step, it was when I turned 30 that I soon realized what it takes to be happy. I’d rather do what I love to do in a place that I love to do it in, right here in Maine. I dance into every room I enter, even grocery stores. I hate to be that person that sounds like a Tinder bio that says “My hobbies are working out, hiking, and adventuring,” but it’s all true for me. I adopted a large golden doodle who keeps me busy outside in the beautiful New England summers and angry in the winter when he chews my pillows. I know I can’t change how the world is right now, but I can absolutely show you it’s easier when you realize it’s not all that serious. Now let’s have fun, baby.
