What is your favorite holiday? Easter has very recently become my favorite, for many reasons. I used to say Christmas, but I more so love the “season” of Christmas than the actual day.
If you could go on a free vacation, where would you go? No doubts my free vacation would be cashed in on a trip to Bora Bora. I would love to stay in one of those incredible bungalows on the water at the Four Seasons Resort.
