What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am working on creating a balance between my work life and my
social life. I have a very challenging and exciting career, that
keeps me busy, but I am open to meet someone special to make that
balance a reality in my life.
Spent the winter training as a Winter Warrior with Chicago
Endurance Sports. It was a bit crazy, but really loved the
Spent a wonderful two weeks hiking the Amalfi Coast in the fall of
2013, and want to spend more vacations on active adventures, like;
biking in Croatia or Sicily, seeing the sky light up with the
mind-blowing colors of the Northern Lights in Finland in the dead
Currently, planning a fall trip to Berlin, Germany to support a
friend running the marathon.
Mornings are special to me; I absolutely love the quiet, as my day
begins. I spend each morning (weather permitting) out on my deck
with coffee and a book, welcoming in the day. I especially enjoy
when I have the opportunity to see the moon bidding it's farewell,
and the sun peeking out at the same time.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making truffle popcorn, mac & cheese and cognac chicken (not at
the same time)! This summer I have become obsessed with perfecting
banana bread... my newest twist is banana/blueberry bread (really
yummy, I wouldn't lie about a serious issue like that!!)
Making morning coffee in my french press with warm pumpkin
chocolate muffins to welcome the day.
Supporting my favorite team the Boston Red Sox!
Making my colleagues laugh in tough situations.

I am also good at enjoying when the sky is blue and sunny!

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably, that I am petite (5ft 1inch), but it might be my vast
array of specs that I wear depending on my mood... Could be my blue
eyes...I'll let you make up your own mind...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read a good mystery, either British or Nordic in genre. I
am a die hard BBC America fan, but also love Masterpiece Theater.
The channel constantly changes on my satellite radio so I can't
give any specifics, but music is definitely important to me!
Authors I enjoy: Karen Armstrong, Rob Bell, Jussi Adler-Olsen.
Deepak Chopra (a random assortment).
Movies that I tend to enjoy are foreign or independent in nature. A
few of my most favorite movies include - Den skaldede frisor
(Danish), Lost in Translation, Amelie, Cairo Time, Breaking Away
(yes, I love this movie) and Wedding Crashers (Can't explain it -
but I laughed so much).
I am a foodie... I love to stay in and cook and entertain, but I
also enjoy finding new places to try here in Chicago. Fell in love
with the devil's food cake at The Dutch in NYC, and just had the
chicken for two at the NoMad....how did they create such magic? Had
a mind-blowing meal at Schwa, it was amazing... What is it about
the meatballs at RPM Italian? Sometimes, I day dream about the most
fantastic sandwich I have ever eaten, in Paris, walking around
Montmartre. It was simple, but perfection :) Tito's Hammock at the
Tiny Lounge is a great way to celebrate summer.
Cookbooks are at the bedside, and of course the newest issue of Bon
Appetit. The first page I read in Bon Appetit is the last page of
the magazine. Yes, it is weird, I can't explain it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Morning cup of coffee
2. Library card
3. Running shoes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I want to go on vacation!!! And then what I would do, and
where I would eat on this escape...
A great glass of Pinot Noir....
When I practice kindness and compassion in my every day life, my
overall outlook improves and I connect with people in away that it
is more remarkable than I could have imagined. I have come to
treasure these two gifts in my life.
The sheer genius behind the development of dental floss....
Absolutely love; Brugge Belgium, and want to re-visit this magical
place with someone special. Brugge, is quaint, cutting edge on the
beer scene and amazing in the food culture!!! Would love to share
it with the right person. I daydream about the fun and adventure
(we) will have on this romantic getaway.
The first cappuccino I had in Naples, Italy looking out at Mt.
Vesuvius and watching the sunset over the Mediterranean.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually doing something casual, and low-key. Grabbing a bite after
work with colleagues or simple dinner at home.
