My self-summary
Hello Netherlands! New transplant here from Arizona, USA I am really enjoying the change of scenery, it's so green here and so much water, in the canals, falling from the sky, the ocean and lakes, it's pretty great! Keukenhof was amazing went the first week they opened and completely loved it, even managed to get a warm stroopwafel which was divine.

I did bring my beautiful dog with me from the US. He is a 9year old German Shepherd mix named Reks who occasionally joins me in photoshoots where I bribe him with treats to participate.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently learning all about the Dutch way of life. I very much enjoy cooking with all the really fresh ingredients!

I have started dog sitting and a dog bakery site!
I’m really good at
I am great at papercrafts, I can whip you up a super expensive handmade card in no time flat and for pretty much any occasion!

PICTURES. I have taken photos of people but I really enjoy nature photography. I even earn royalties on them from time to time! I do take way too many selfies when i do my hair and makeup, partly because i like to be able to look back on different hair and makeup I've done (makeup is another passion but i won't bore you with that boring topic). I am interested in getting into architectural photography and with all the great buildings in Amsterdam, I think I'll have quite a bit of available material.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book - Alice in Wonderland, technically I prefer Through the Looking Glass but not everyone has read that one and it's a sequel anyway, without Alice in Wonderland it wouldn't make any sense.

Movie - I enjoy all different movies, some of my favorites are A Knights Tale (I know, I know but it's nostalgic and I love the music and there's some really great actors in it), Stepbrothers (Easily my favorite Will Ferrel/John C. Reilly movie), Shutter Island (wasn't such a big Leonardo DiCaprio fan in my teens but totally love him now), Seven and many more! I've spent a lot of my time watching movies!

Show - Firefly, Criminal Minds, White Collar, and a lot of others, mostly crime based but I'm open

Music - a few favorite bands are Matchbox Twenty, Aerosmith, Everclear, The Eagles, 3oh3 (I find them hilarious), Taylor Swift (both the country and the pop version) and so many more! Open to suggestions!

Food - Carbs, really really love the carbs especially in the form of Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Six things I could never do without
Reks because he's my beautiful furbaby
Words because they're just so useful
Light because without light there wouldn't be color
Tastebuds because eating really is one of my favorite things
Art because it's inspirational and something I really enjoy
A bikini because it's the best thing to wear at the beach
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Recipes, I'm always making food of some sort and very much enjoy thinking of flavors and dishes to make. Baking is also great fun! I'm also looking to expand into other cuisines and spices and have thoroughly enjoyed my Marley Spoon subscription.
On a typical Friday night I am
going out for Gin and Tonics!! I love a high quality cocktail gin and vodka based ones being my favorites. I really enjoy cleverly named ones or ones with fun garnishes!
You should message me if
You love great food! Feel free to send me your favorite recipe, I love getting new ideas.

You want to meet and see if we jive for either friendship or dating, I'm open to both, having friends here would be nice!

You know all the coolest places in town, new adventures are fun!

You have a punny joke(dad jokes and jokes from popsicle sticks also welcome)! My current favorite is:
Q: What is the Cheshire Cat's favorite drink?
A: Evaporated Milk
The two of us
