I'm basically a homebody that is interested in everything. I can't walk into a Barnes & Nobel without buying more books, and I already have more than I can ever read. Historical non-fiction is definitely my favorite. I also love food. Greek, afghan, mexican, bbq... if it's food, I'm interested! I'm naturally a very optimistic and cheerful person. I'm also very logical and grounded. But I have a bizarre sense of humor and laugh easily. I'm the oldest of 5 kids, so I'm programmed to be responsible and a bit bossy. I grew up in Seattle, but have lived in the South for the last 7 years. It feels like home now, and I absolutely love it here.
