When I visit Meadville, Pennsylvania, my hometown, I enjoy:
Seeing the cool-looking chimneys my dad, a brick mason, designed and built, sometimes with my help.
Best thing about our vegetable garden:
Planting and picking vegetables with my children, especially lettuce! It’s a pleasure to pick all the varieties fresh. We eat salad every night.
Another fun food:
Homemade pizza prepared by the family. When we ask the kids what they want for dinner, they either say pizza or tacos.
In the planning stage:
Taking my kids, Lydia and Declan, golfing as soon as they’re old enough.
At my house there are a lot of:
Toys! These include Little Tykes basketball hoops (three), and many building sets – Lego-style building blocks, Picasso Magnetic Tiles, wooden building blocks. My daughter keeps it all organized.
What I love about my job:
Seeing the work of many people come together into a finished project, and the collaboration required to make that happen.
