Hi! I was originally born in Pittsburgh, PA and now live in sunny Los Angeles. I work in entertainment, generally enjoy city life but also love taking excursions to the country and nature. I love the ocean, running, biking and outdoors activities - but am also a girly girl at heart so sign me up for shopping and beauty pampering as well. I don't go out as much as I used to but definitely love good food and craft beer. Belgian ales, too, of course - Chimay Blue is my drink!
Traveling has proven to be one of the great joys of my life. I lived in France for five years in my early twenties - which is where I met my man :). While I love longer vacations - spent two weeks in the Caribbean most recently - nothing beats short stays, a few days or so, in nearby locations. There is so much to do and see in Southern California, I can't get over it!
As for bed and breakfasts, I've really only recently started to get into them - when I tried to book a weekend stay in Temecula wine country and realized that it was actually cheaper to rent an entire guest house than a hotel room. Go figure!
While I can't imagine myself hosting via Airbnb (I work from home and am here too much), I can assure you that I would be a respectful guest - I have no cleaning woman and a lazy husband so know just how much effort it takes to keep the place tidy.
