The first thing you should know about me is that I will always be southern at heart. I was born in Texas and moved to Virginia when I was young; which means I don't have the accent but do have the values/manners (I will open your door). This also means I own cowboy boots, enjoy barbecuing, and occasionally listen to country music.
Hopefully that didn't scare you off, because there is a little more to know... I have a black lab named Murphy who really is the sweetest dog you will meet, and people watching (and judging) is a favorite past time as are Sunday brunches. I'm also learning to cook which is an adventure in and of itself. While very much a beginner, I do have a few signature dishes thanks to Men's Health (black bean enchiladas and Thai chicken salad). I've also become a pretty big wino in the past year and love to make my own sangria (which just happens to go very nicely with my enchiladas).
