I’m very in touch with my “inner child” in that I really enjoy playing games and goofing around – I’m not ashamed to say I love a game of Battleship or mini golf! I grew up near the ocean and am happiest when I’m on or near some body of water. I consider myself a creative person, and love to make/create/build things with my hands.
I try to keep an open mind and positive outlook, and think that every experience in life can teach you something valuable. I enjoy being around grounded people who have similar values as I do, but also who challenge me and/or expand my horizons. My friends and family are the most important things to me and I prioritize my relationships with these people above all else.
Also, parallel parking. Hold your "girls can't drive!" comments there, I promise I'll prove you wrong if you give me a tight space between two parked cars.
Shows: I love Homeland, Downton Abbey, Seinfeld, How I Met Your Mother, Game of Thrones, and Glee. Okay fine, and The Bachelor.
Movies: I don't have a list of favorite movies, but I do love Inception (love movies that make you think!), The Departed, Almost Famous... recently really enjoyed Moonrise Kingdom.
Pretty open to different kinds of music – The Band, Van Morrison, Kings of Leon, The Lumineers, Stevie Wonder, Mumford & Sons, Fitz & the Tantrums, Virginia Coalition...
Food: may seem random, but if I could choose my last meal on earth it would be risotto. I also really love scrambled eggs. And I think avocado makes almost everything better (and I can't understand why Taylor Gourmet doesn't have it on their sandwiches!)
Also, I like to whittle every once in a while. And no, I'm not a 75 year old woman who sits at home crafting, but it's very relaxing and rewarding to wind up with a finished product that you created with just your hands and a few tools!
