I am a gardener, cook, avid reader, mom, and wife living in central VT. I enjoy dressing up outlandishly for no particular reason, and my friends seem to enjoy it too. I love where I live, but also enjoy seeing other places and meeting new folks. I am level-headed, practical, fairly laid-back, and enjoy a good laugh. Fortunately, I am easily amused! My traveling needs are pretty minimal -- a place to sleep and a roof over my head for not too much $$ is generally all I require (although when I travel with my family, they can be a wee bit more particular).
