Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an outdoorsy girl next door, and you're likely to find me
hitting the sidewalks of Alexandria with my trusty sidekick, Baloo.
I lived abroad for a couple of years, but found that I missed home.
I came to the conclusion that I love to explore, but I enjoy having
roots to come home to. To me, the best part of the day is the fresh
feeling of a morning, especially if it's on a weekend and I'm
looking forward to a fun day. These days, that fun day might
consist of any of the following: A hike or a backpacking
overnight--nothing like having a bear traverse your campsite in the
middle of the night for good stories, right? Having dinner with
friends can make for equally good stories, if they're the right
friends. Heading to the dog park and then strolling around Mt.
Vernon by the Potomac is less heart-pounding than bears, but also
makes for a fun day. For a city adventure, going to a museum (my
favorites are the NMNH and the Portrait Gallery) or for dinner (no
favorites--I like it all). If I'm feeling handy, wandering the
aisles of Home Depot and figuring out my latest project. Or if it's
been a long week, just picking a movie and some takeout for a night
on the couch. Or a fun day could consist of things I haven't tried
So what do you think- does any of that sound fun to you? If so,
it's always great to have company- drop me a line!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work full time, and most days I love my job. I made a huge career
shift a few years ago, which was scary, but it's been a good move
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at being organized and efficient, at making great meals to
backpack with, and at being a caring and supportive friend. I'm
also pretty good in a crisis. My Red Cross training has come in
handy a few times.

I thought about listing them all out here. But then I thought, what
if someone wanted a reason to message me and ask about them? What
if that someone is you?
I hope this little gamble pays off...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I couldn't do without my family. Sometimes we put the fun in
dysfunctional, but they're always there when I need them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Acronyms. It's a work thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
winding the week down with a glass of wine. Or looking at trail
maps for a hike the next day. Possibly both.

Oh. And I might have skipped the "Favorites" section of your
profile when I read it. I probably wouldn't know any of the
awesomely hipster and eclectic bands you listed anyway. Just send
me a playlist.
