Keeping work and life in balance is a priority for me. I'm a social introvert - I make sure to spend time with people who are important to me, and I love taking trips and planning get togethers. I crave sunshine and love the outdoors - I always have herbs or vegetables growing in the warm months, and love the pool and the beach, as well as the cliched long walks. I also just can't help myself from exploring houses under construction.
I'd love to travel more, with someone. My travel style is pretty easy going, and I absolutely love being able to chat a little in other languages - it feels like magic.
Planning, listening, growing herbs, pet whispering.
I'm also surprisingly good at shopping for other people - looking for a great piece of art for your living room or a replacement for your favorite pair of shoes? I'm your girl.

I'm open to just about anything regarding food. Greek/Mediterranean, Thai, Indian, good Italian, Barbeque, and Chinese. Oh, and the chocolate croissants at the farmer's market. Good coffee. Wheat-y beers. Wine. Creative cocktails. Very sour pickly things.
I also enjoy a good Netflix binge on the couch
