An ideal day off is a slow morning lounging at home with her high school sweetheart, now husband, sipping craft coffee, and groovin' to whatever record is spinning. An evening follows with a home-cooked dinner and great glass of wine with friends and family! Also worth a mention: she can whip up a mean deviled egg!
