Favorite sounds...."Will’s laughter; the ocean; jazz" While I love all your answers because I love learning more about you,(I'm glad your eye color didn't change through the course of that meme btw :) ) THAT answer was my favorite of them all how could you go wrong with your son, the ocean and Jazz lofting through the air? Thanks for sharing.
