I am one of those hopeless romantics that cry at the beginning of Up (best love story ever) and Star Trek (the new one, because George died saving everyone), every single time. I love, love, love to travel. I've lived in five states (California, Colorado, Montana, Washington and now North Carolina). I speak enough Mandarin Chinese to start and end a conversation but not enough to make the middle interesting. I knit, draw, sculpt and paint whenever I get the chance. I love all things lemon. I like to hike (not 14'ers) and snowboard (14'ers). I'm always looking for adventure. Lemon Curd Cheesecake. YUM! Wilco, Okkervil River, Gillian Welch and Spearhead are the bands that I shout my favorite songs to. I want to go on a food vacation to Thailand. I love movies! My favorites are The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Amelie, Stranger than Fiction and anything by Wes Anderson (except for Bottlerocket, that one I just don't get). I love the Harry Potter books and the Game of Thrones series.
