I love to laugh and spend time with happy, witty people. I like movies, books, learning about the world, camping, road trips, and the outdoors.
My friends are very important to me. I like to think I'm a good, thoughtful, loyal friend. I love being a part of a community of people who take care of each and look out for each other. I am very community-oriented; I believe in supporting our schools and our local businesses and our neighbors. I believe in the village.
I'm a big reader and always have a book going. I learned to knit a few years ago and find it very relaxing. I love the fall. Actually, I love all the seasons except winter. Why does it have to be so cold? But I grin and bear it and try to focus on how pretty the snow is.
When I have some free time, I head to Eastern Market or shop around at thrift stores. I am happy doing this alone or with girlfriends, though! I enjoy museums, new restaurants, local festivals, and biking around town. I play trivia with a team of friends at a local bar a couple times a month which is always fun and usually humbling.
I ran my first 5K in August and it turns out I liked it! Who knew?
I have three kids -- 11, 9, and 6. I think they're pretty great.
In another life, or before I had kids, I was a junior high and high school English teacher. So, yes, all of this will be on the quiz later.
