Awesome with a side of "lightly geeky" for good measure. I'm just beginning the journey into road cycling, and love to work out at the gym. I am passionate about learning, teaching, reading, and laughing. I'm a junkie for mint-chocolate chip ice cream, after work coffee breaks (or anytime coffee, really), listening to the rain on my balcony, and watching almost anything on Food Network or Discovery...which has partly led to my enthusiastic adventures in amateur cake decorating. My tweenage niece thinks I'm pretty cool. High praise! Being an auntie is fantastic. I'm a bit on the quiet side until you get to know me and find out I have a goofy side as well.
