I enjoy traveling and exploring, especially to places abroad. Each year, I like to get a new stamp in my passport. Last year, Mexico. This year, Canada and hopefully Croatia for the Game of Thrones fan in me. You learn so much about yourself when you experience new cultures and ways of life. You also learn not to take the things you have for granted... and not to pack so much. I always strive for a carry on, guys!
Love kids and spending time with my niece and nephew. I have enjoyed watching them grow into young adults and have learned so much from them... especially what cool iPhone apps I need to download.
This journey in my life has been amazing and I look forward to hopefully sharing it with someone who is fun to be with, can laugh at themselves and not take life to seriously. We inspire each other to go after our goals and be better people. You are someone who challenges and respects me. You also like to try new things, but still enjoy doing the things that make you happy. You shouldn't be afraid to say what you're thinking and be yourself. You also like dogs especially an adopted puggle named Desmo. You're considerate, honest, a gentleman and are looking for a fun, fulfilled life with laughter, love, travel and some football!
I have a 7 year old puggle who keeps me busy, makes me laugh and loves the dog park.
Love being active - either playing or watching all types of sports and working out. Bikram yoga, spinning, and body pump classes are my go to's.
Love all seasons – why VA is a great place to live!

• Remembering a friend's birthday
• Baking chocolate chip cookies
• Hamming it up while singing (For some reason, my friends like watching me belt out a tune. Some even ask me to perform at their weddings.)
• Knowing the lyrics to random songs
• Coming up with a silly holiday card from my travels that year (I've been told that my card usually makes the fridge. Love that!)
• Keeping my car clean and getting it serviced every 3,000+ miles (Like father, like daughter)
• Opening up a crab and getting all the meat out (Eating crabs since I was 5 years old so better be good at it!)
• Planning fun events for friends – even a HS Reunion.
-The Way, Way Back
-The Godfather I and II
-It's a Wonderful Life (Love watching it during the holidays.)
-Star Wars Episode IV-VI. (Yes... I did have Star Wars action figures growing up instead of Barbies!)
-Any John Hughes Movies
-The Wedding Date
-Under the Tuscan Sun (I saw this after I went to Tuscany on holiday and made me miss Italy.)
"In Defense of Food" by Michael Pollan. I'm trying to cook more and get away from processed foods. Now that I have a dog, I'm reading "Cesar's Way" by Cesar Millan. I also enjoy reading newspapers and magazines. I subscribe to "The Washingtonian" to keep up on all the good DC scoop, restaurants and events.
HBO Series, especially Game of Thrones. And, can't leave out Homeland on Showtime. So good!
Downton Abbey - Maggie Smith's character is the best.
A bit of everything depending on mood: jazz to alternative to classic rock to old school hip hop. Wiki Wiki! Thanks to my niece, she's getting me into country music.
Love all food, except peas. Sushi is my favorite. Wasaaaabi!
and the Hokies!
I also think about how lucky I am.... to be healthy, the places I've traveled to and the friends I have in my life.
