Since I still live in Austin, I don’t eat out much in San Antonio, but Mi Tierra is always fun!

I would really love to go to Ireland one day, specifically the Kilkenny area.

French Fries (Well any form of fried potatoes, really)!

In Jackie’s spare time, she enjoys renovating her house, fishing, and spending time with her family (including Dakota!).
