Honesty, a sense of self-deprecating humor and an open mind are important to me. I don't take myself too seriously and having a good laugh, even if its at my expense, is fine by me. I think of myself as being a pretty low-key normal person - bud light is my beer of choice, I enjoy a good boat shoe in the summer, cozy sweaters in the winter, Dirty Dancing is my fave movie, dunks over sbux any day, Bruins are my team, a roaring fire rocks my world. I do enjoy the finer things in life, but day to day, its the little things that do it for me.
I love running and try to do a couple races a year - right now I'm gearing up for a half marathon in May. Any chance to get out in the fresh air is always on my radar whether its a trip to the beach, a long walk, kayaking, a good run, grilling on the patio etc. I tried paddle boarding for the first time last summer so I'm pretty excited for the weather to warm up and start that up again. Love spending time down the Cape in the summer - for me there is nothing better than a day on the beach capped off with a beer and a sunset.
I'm pretty crafty - in the Martha Stewart sense of the word. I'm not afraid of taking on a good DIY project and have actually ended making some pretty cool stuff. I won't lie and say there haven't been some epic fails, but I guess that's par for the course. In that same vein, I've been told that I'm not a terrible cook :)
