Two things I can’t live without: Travel and puppy kisses…in no particular order. 😀
Best restaurant I ever ate at: I look for outdoor seating, the menu in a foreign language, and a server that will order me their favorite dish! My most recent favorite was in Santa Marta, Colombia – a Mediterranean-style restaurant with local Colombian-flare. If you ever get a chance to indulge at Ouzo’s, the Midia Saganaki (mussels in white wine and sheep’s milk cheese sauce) is a must!
Favorite holiday: Independence Day – When I was a child, I thought that my parents gathered hundreds of people, no matter where we were on vacation that year, all for my birthday weekend (July 5). I was sorely disappointed when I realized it wasn’t my birthday everyone was celebrating – it was America’s!
What one word describes me best: Compassionate

Best advice received: If (your current problem) is the worst thing that is happening in your life right now, you’re doing just fine. (Thanks, Mom!)

In my spare time, I like to: Visit museums, take dance lessons, and cook.
