When have I NOT been in it? (LOL) I would say I’ve been involved with tanning since my first session in a Sun Capsule getting ready for senior prom! Growing up in Maine, we only had about four sunny months, if that. Tanning just made me feel better (I didn’t know anything about vitamin D at the time) and I loved it. I was lucky enough to wind up having a lifetime career in a profession that I not only knew a lot about, but also loved.
Funny enough, my second grade class was asked to draw a picture of what we “wanted to be” and we put the drawings in a time capsule. I drew a picture of me as president of the United States (Reagan was president at the time); but of course, a couple years later, I was hoping for a career in baseball or basketball.
As a diehard foodie, I don’t find many foods unusual and I love trying different things from around the world. I think the better question for me is what’s the most unusual food I have not eaten: that would be Rocky Mountain Oysters! My family at Midas Touch Salon in Emporia, KS (shout-out to the Ringlers!) keep wanting me to try them, but I’m giving that one a hard pass.
The one I watch is Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey – going for our third consecutive Stanley Cup. Go Bolts! Being at Fenway Park watching the Sox is always magical, too. If I am playing a sport these days, it is going to be golf. My baseball/softball days came to an end a couple of years ago with multiple shoulder injuries/surgery.
Opportunity – there is no better gift one can receive (besides life … thanks, Mom). With any opportunity, it is up to you to create what you want from it.
Lately, that has to be Camden, my 1.5 year-old Rottie pup. He’s a riot!
I’m not sure I could pick just one thing. I work with the BEST team in the tanning industry. We have a huge Devoted family all over the globe which is fantastic! The friendships, relationships and fabulous times I have had over the past 20+ years are nothing short of amazing.
