I spend a lot of time enjoying the outdoors. Hiking is one of my passions and I've done a lot of hiking on the Appalachian Trail and up in the Adirondacks where I'm originally from. But I'm not completely one sided. I also love gardening. I own my own home which is a lot of work but can be rewarding too. I love to travel and explore new places. I don't like crowds so little towns and off season are great for me. And one of my favorite places is the camp my parents have on a lake in the Adirondack mountains. It is a truly beautiful place. I'm really more of a lake person than an ocean person mostly just because I find lakes to be more peaceful.
I also love to watch my children grow and try new things. I try to encourage them to step out of their comfort zone which isn't always easy. But it's great to see. So I've taken them on some big hikes and we've done some overnight backpacking together. We've gone to Peak Experiences and done some kayaking. They are at the perfect age to do lots of the things I enjoy doing together.
My musical taste varies a lot. When I'm with my daughter we're pretty much Q94 all the way but sometimes I just have to change the channel when rap comes on. Sometimes I listen to country. My daughter has me hooked on Taylor Swift (don't hold that against me). I also love rock. That's really my first love.
I don't watch much TV unless the kids have it on. I would rather be cooking or making something with my hands. One of my favorite things to do when I'm in a good place with someone is just lie in bed together reading. OK. So now you've discovered I'm really a dork.
