I live in a great neighborhood in the city, and I'm definitely a city girl all the way. I don't really see myself ever living on a cul-de-sac street in the far away suburbs. Once you have the opportunity to walk to work everyday it's hard to go back to taking the train or driving. Living downtown is awesome, but I try to be outdoors/out of the city on the weekends, especially in the summer - hiking, biking, beach-going, etc.
I'm close with my family and see them pretty frequently. Luckily, my parents have a house in Maine, so I don't have to go all the way down to Virginia to see them.
Like everyone else on here, my greatest passion is traveling and exploring new places. I've been all over Europe, but I've got a long list of places I want to see next - Thailand, India, Portugal, Costa Rica, and so many others. I just returned from at trip to London, Cappadocia, and Istanbul in May - Google pictures of Cappadocia, it will blow your mind!
p.s. all my profile pictures are from this trip because they are the most up-to-date/I'm feeling lazy :)
