Get to know Abbey
In a past life I was…
I like to think in a past life I was a butterfly, floating through life wherever it takes me. With all the transitions a butterfly experiences. From egg, caterpillar, cocoon, and the end result, a butterfly. I feel as though I have gone through many life changes, and still grow to this day. Life is a never-ending adventure.
What's your ideal vacation?
My ideal vacation would be traveling anywhere I haven't been before. Hunting down the most beautiful locations and exploring whatever it has to offer. It could be any climate and any landscape. As long as I have the proper attire to be comfortable, I would be happy wherever I am.
