Favorite place in West Texas?
By far, her favorite spot in West Texas is her own back yard. She lives out in the country, and has great views of sunsets and sunrises. She and her husband, Davlin, and their two children, Annalea and Darby, have made many memories there, and hope to have many more.

What is Cari's hidden talent?
Cari loves to learn about both art and history. Ever since she was a little girl, she enjoyed looking at old photos with family members and listening to stories of the past. Now, she takes pride in restoring old photographs for both her family and others.
