Fun Stuff

Albany possesses a penchant for Pinterest, Pilates, Pinot Grigio, podcasts, poems, puns, ponzu sauce, and plane tickets, and apparently has an affinity for the letter “P.” She also has a soft spot for local spots and small shops. When not home in a matching loungewear set, Albany enjoys her big city life, exploring her community and embracing all it offers. You will often find her attending various events and indulging in a variety of activities, including, but not limited to, new restaurant openings, museum hopping, or browsing bookstores. If she’s not at a Chicago coffee shop sipping anything matcha or in a record store collecting more vinyl, she might be road-tripping across the country or staying close to home, visiting her close-knit family in St. Louis, or catching the first-midnight showing of the latest Disney or Marvel movie in theaters.
