bonjour, hola, guten tag, ciao, shalom, olá, hallo, hello!
i'm renee recently reverse migrated back to the northeast from sunny (and TOO hot) miami beach and before that philly where winters were too cold, rainy, and gloomy. now i'll take a crisp cool fall or spring day over the hot humid 9 month long sofla summers :-). after a year in NYC and several months abroad, i've replanted back to and am getting settle in my hometown of pittsburgh pa, USA. at least for now. so please bear with me as my recent relo has made life a bit hiccupy for the moment.
SWF financially responsible, budget minded, working professional--non smoker with big love for the family yellow lab super duper cooper (aka coopy bubby or boopy). more importantly: (relatively ;-) normal, kind, healthy, balanced, considerate and respectful and rarely home due to long work hours and lots of travel.
i'm an immaculately clean fanatic--i leave no proof of my presence behind except maybe my catchy energy and perhaps for my special peeps, possibly a bottle of wine. prefer guests/hosts do the same--no water on the bathroom floor, no hair or surprise rings in the tub or table tops, no crumbs on the counter, no dishes in the sink/on countertops etc. care for my own space like gold other peoples spaces like platinum. my mother taught me when invited to someone's home to always treat it like your own and use really good manners--so i guess one could say that makes me a good guest and too, a good host...at least from what i've been told :-)
where can you find me?? nyc--the big apple
what are my favorite international travel destinations?
my favorite is italy by far! i feel so welcomed here each time. especially firenze or anywhere in the tuscano or umbria country side, the lakes/mountains regions (stresa, i LOVE you), amalifi coast, or capri (anacapri)
france-- paris, lyon, biarritz, wine country, or western coast and corsica
spain--barcelona, sevila, valencia, mallorca, (ibiza before it commercialized)
switzerland--i like the east better as it is more french, but the west side is far more beautiful (except maybe for lausanne)
canada--i love toronto, montreal, and quebec city...western canada is next
tropical islands sipping a strawberry colada under a pine (oops, hahah palm) tree with my favorite company listening to the ocean or house music all night long
next up? (in no particular order)
eastern europe & russia
greek islands, turkey etc.
traveled canada and europe (UK, NL, BE, CHE, FR, IT) for 4 months over the halloween, thanksgiving, christmas, and new years holidays. had the trip of a lifetime. i plan to take breaks between consulting projects more often now :-)!
i work as a consulting practitioner in industrial/organizational (workplace) psychology, aka human resources, and i practice what i teach at work. i love my field.
life motto??? absolutely. "do the right thing!...just do the right thing...and nothing goes wrong!"
