Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Nothing turns a frown upside down quite like a bright yellow sunflower, and Arizona’s Mortimer Farms has over 100,000 of them! The small-town family farm hosts a yearly Sunflower Festival in late summer and early fall, featuring endless u-pick sunflower fields and tons more activities for the whole family. You can’t miss it!
The Sunflower Festival runs from September 10 – September 19, and the Pumpkin Fest & Corn Maze will be held September 24 – September 26 and October 1 – October 31 (the September dates are considered a “soft opening”). Visit the Mortimer Farms website or Facebook page for more information about hours and ticket prices, as both vary.
