I had a stay-at-home dad until I was in middle school which, in retrospect, was pretty awesome. He drove a minivan, so naturally he was the coolest dad around. This also helps explain my interest in sports/competition, mild use of foul language, sarcasm, and love of breakfast foods for dinner. Of course, my mom taught me a few things as well.
Favorite things: my girlfriends, dirt roads, exploring new cities, amazing food, basketball, Paris, dive bars, change of seasons, trying new restaurants, soccer, hotel beds, not going to clubs, my parent's dog, music, the beach/ocean, Spain, champagne, going for walks in unknown places, ice cream, pajamas, my hometown, peanut butter, and home cooking.
I have an awesome, highly entertaining group of friends from all stages of my life (diapers, high school, college, post-college) and would do anything for them. I also volunteer in the Big Sisters program which has been such a fun experience.
