Chocolate and dogs are at the top of my list of favorite things! I'm from Bethesda, MD and am happy to still be living and working in the wonderful DC area. I consider myself both a city gal and country gal but from the suburbs. I volunteer several times a month at Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation's adoption events. I love to travel! Also love to read, watch movies, go to the gym, spend time with family/friends, and drink sweet tea. Catching A Prairie Home Companion and Car Talk on the radio in the car makes me happy. And sometimes I find cleaning to be quite therapeutic. I'm an avid Wash Post reader and follow politics/current events probably more than the average American but certainly not to the extreme. Looking for someone who shares my progressive values.
