Growing up in a large family I've learned the importance of being able to laugh at oneself. I truly think that laughter is the best medicine (although my friends who are doctors tend to disagree with me). I'm independent and love spending time with good friends and family. I think there's no greater skill than pairing food with the perfect bottle of wine. I appreciate artistic expression and try to find the beauty in everyday things. I love a good adventure and am always up for one!
