Life is too short to make a big deal about the little things.
Cooking brings me great joy, and I love discovering new recipes and cooking for friends. Living in rural VT forces me to be creative in the kitchen because the dining out options up here are scarce - I travel for sushi :)
Music without fail can make me happy, I love discovering new artists and will always listen to suggestions and offer feedback. I love a range of things, and feel that if it has a good beat or guitar I'll like it.
I enjoy being outdoors, it is so beautiful here that it seems a shame to stay indoors. After work and on the weekends you can find me on my bike. I'm still figuring out those winter sports, and in the market for a good teacher!
I absolutely love my nieces and nephews - I try to spend as much time with them as possible.

Food? At the risk of sounding typical, I love sushi and anything healthy.
As far as music is concerned, I think the right album can get you through just about anything. Some of my favorites are:
Lake Street Dive
Luke Bryan .
I also watch the news and listen to NPR every morning while I get ready for work, I like staying informed.
As for TV shows, I enjoy political satire shows like Last Week Tonight, and Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. I miss Jon Stewart. I also love VEEP, OITNB, The Wire, anything else HBO produces....
