What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
In my spare time, I love to travel. I often mention to my husband that I should become a professional traveler. A favorite place I have visited is London, but I have never seen a beach I did not love.
Have you visited a memorable restaurant?
When my daughter was young, we went to the American Girl store in Chicago. While we were there, we had tea at the Drake Hotel. It was so fancy, and she loved it. That was a day we both will remember.
Have you ever driven or piloted anything other than a car or light truck?
I did not drive or pilot it, but I had the opportunity to ride in the Goodyear Blimp when I was in high school. The pilots even flew me over my house so I could see it from the air. It was an amazing experience.
