A: The luckiest thing for me was where I ended up sitting at an OU softball game in 2014. With my junior high niece in tow to watch the Sooners, we sat next to the person who would later become my life partner. It was unsuspecting and so, so lucky.
Q: What do you miss most about your childhood?
A: Living in the country and filling my time by being outdoors … riding my Honda 50 motorcycle, checking on the farm animals, bird watching, exploring nature.
