In many ways I’m a planner in life, but I think there’s always that extra space for some much-needed spontaneity. On the planning end of the spectrum, I love hosting dinner parties, traveling (Scotland later this year), and being on the water or the slopes. And on the spontaneous side, I once traveled to Brazil with four days’ notice (getting a Visa was a nightmare!), I do a lot of experimenting in my kitchen (no casualties yet…), and if someone wants to try a new restaurant in town, I’ll be there before Tom Sietsema even has a chance to do his review.
While I do keep myself very active, there are a few simple things that really make me happy: buying fresh veggies for the week at Eastern Market, a good workout - gym, run or bike, or accomplishing a project around my house. It’s the little things that sometimes have the most meaning.
