Besides enjoying cooking at home I'm also a big fan of going out and finding a great place to have a great meal.
I started long distance only a few years ago but I work hard on it all the time. I spend quite a bit of time trying to improve. It's such a stress reliever and I tend to get really great ideas when I'm out.
I do like to travel though I find it difficult to balance traveling with home improvement projects at my house. So I do a lot of mini road trips and days or weekends in Chicago. I will be spending a week in Boston this coming spring though which I really excited about.
