At first glance, I'm feminine, kind, and gentle-natured. Just under the surface though, I love a little grit in life, don't mind using elbow grease to get things done, enjoy a good dive bar, open my own pickle jars (but always appreciate help offered anyway), get a surprising amount done in a pencil skirt and heels, change tires, and throw a solid spiral. I'm warm, usually very open, and am in my element when hosting dinner parties, cocktail hour, at a speakeasy, jazz concert, or chatting one-on-one with a close friend.
Witty repartee makes me weak in my knees as do men who are kind to their mothers, children, the elderly, and puppies (predictable I know). I love vintage/used books but was forced into e-readerdom out of pity for my diligent bookshelves. Even so, I dream about the day I'll house my own physical library.
After 10 years of living in Massachusetts I'm finally back in MD. I miss Cambridge/Boston terribly but can't wait to unfold Baltimore and see what it has to offer...I'd love a partner-in-crime to do it with.
