When I'm not working or traveling, I love hanging out with my friends outside (any season), hiking, climbing, camping, kayaking, watching movies, cooking, watching sports (go Yankees!), or just sitting outside with a book and ice cream or coffee (or beer or a gin and tonic...), depending on the weather. I also tend to pick up random hobbies - fire spinning, languages - and passions. I recently bought a guitar which I'm really hoping to learn to play soon. I'm pretty much a jeans and t-shirt gal unless I'm working and have to be in a suit. But I also really love the occasions when I can get dressed up in a sexy dress and heels.
In terms of a partner... It might be cliche but I really am looking for a best friend with whom I can also enjoy fabulous sex. I'm looking for a smart, funny, self-confident, socially conscious man who is easygoing and can balance my, sometimes, intense nature. On my recent travels I've been thinking about how wonderful it would be to have someone to share in the adventures we plan together, the food, the relaxation, the exploration that comes with intentionally getting lost to learn a new city, and the sometimes unforeseen circumstances that make the journey all the more interesting in the end. Or to come home to after a business trip, roadtrip with the girls, etc. And I'm a total sucker for a guy in a Yankee cap.
