|Ireland in 2010. The guy reminded me of a Ralph Lauren ad.|
I cannot get enough travel in my life. I'm always scheming my next trip. When Alex and I first started dating he went on one trip a year: Canada with his family. They'd been to the same place for eons and he didn't seem to care about going anywhere else. It took a while to pass on the travel bug, but I think our camping trips and visits to Hawaii have changed his outlook. He had more fun than he anticipated in Europe last summer and wants to keep traveling!

I loooove books. Since 2009 I've averaged 73 books a year. I'm currently in the middle of a book re-shuffle: I'm making a big library wall in our guest bedroom. I'm hoping to add a reading nook, but we'll see how it goes! By the way, my favorite book store is Half Price Books. My top 5 favorite authors are (no particular order): Thomas Hardy, Willa Cather, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, and Max Barry.

I love being outside. (I miss sunshine and warmth. It's NINE right now.) Growing up, my mom and I used to go for walks at the local metro park or Old Man's Cave. I went through a bit of a hiking drought between college and adult life, but Alex also loves hiking so we're always looking for a fun place to go. We try to go on one camping trip per year, but also make short trips to parks in the area to get our nature fix. (I can't motivate myself to camp for more than a few days in a row. I don't think guys understand camping struggles for ladies!)
Obviously! Man, I'm seriously considering a treadmill purchase. This extreme cold has me beat. I prefer cold weather running, but not when temperatures are under 15 degrees!
