Hello I am Shonda. I am originally from CA but have lived in GA for many years. I will always be a CA girl at heart and still miss not living near the ocean, even after all of these years. I am a social worker and provide support/counseling to individuals battling cancer. My job is rewarding but very demanding so it has become very important that I find time to relax and enjoy life outside of work. I enjoy reading, cooking, watching old sitcoms, and trying new restaurants with my bf. I have traveled mainly within the U.S. My favorite trip was to Chicago (I fell in love). I enjoy Mexican, Thai and Chinese food. I also enjoy a nice juicy steak on the grill every now and then. I enjoy all types of music.
I will be traveling with my bf of 4 years. We are very laid back, open minded and respectful. We live in the Martin Luther King historic district in Atlanta. Our beautiful family is black, white and Asian. Our friends are gay, straight and of many races. We work hard and know it is important to try and live our lives to the fullest. I guess our motto would be "Eat, Drink and Be Merry." ;) This will be my first trip to NYC. I am very excited and look forward to all the touristy things I want to do. We are trying Airbnb and are a little apprehensive but hope to find clean, comfortable accommodations for a good price with a host who is kind, easy going, hospitable and has a good energy about him/her.
