I enjoy doing almost anything with family and friends regardless of whether it is my favorite thing to do or not, skydiving might be a bit much though. I like to stay active and my favorite things to do are to swim or ride my bike, but I’m game for almost anything, and I’m looking forward to getting back into skiing. I also grew up doing a lot of baking and making crafts, so I like to make things for people to celebrate special occasions or to say thank you.
