I have lived in the DC area for several years. My friends would say that I am laid back, easy-going, and very active. There is always something to do from attending a theatre performance or athletic event to hiking or biking. I also enjoy relaxing by the pool or on my deck with a good book. Cooking is a passion of mine, especially baking, and I often cook for my family and friends. It's fun to try new recipes. This past year I have tried several new soup/chili recipes that were healthy and delicious. I also enjoy traveling (who doesn't). So far I have visited Greece, Croatia, France, Monaco, Italy, and Spain and am looking forward to new adventures.
