I am a first time mom!
Originally from the West Coast, and raised in a very health concious/hippie environment. While this lends itself to my open minded values, I do not think of myself as laid back. I am def. more of the planner/organized/type A persuasion. DH, raised on the East Coast, is far more spontaneous and free. It was this, and his sense of humor, that I was attracted to the most when we meet almost 9 years ago.
We love to travel - and have had the opportunity to visit Alaska, Puerto Rico, the Carribean, as well as Italy, Europe, Spain and Greece. Our next European trip will be to Ireland and the UK. We would also like to go back to Italy and Greece and spend more time there. Who knows what the future holds or when this might be possible. But a girl can dream?!
We are also big foodies: I was raised vegan/no-sugar but I eat a vegetarian/ minimal sugar/minimal gluten diet now (no allergies, just personal preference). DH was a vegetarian when we for a few years but he eats meat (all natural etc.) and I imagine LO will too. We used to go out to reasutrants a lot more - and while we enjoyed it and it was a big part of our social life - we decided that we did not want toe at the food that is widely available and would rather eat at home. As such, we are trying to cook more. I find I am not the best cook - and DH is a great cook - but I end up doing more of the cooking (more motiviation I think). We enjoy eating international foods, when we do go out and splurge or celebrate a special occasion.
In my free time I practice yoga. I have been taking prental classes since this summer and practicing two years prior to that. I would like to add pilates and mediation to the mix someday. I also enjoy reading fiction and I am always looking for a new good book.
We have two dogs that we rescued. Edgar is 5 years old and a boston terrier/pug mix. Annabelle is 3 years old, a boston terrier/pug/beagle mix, and the queen bee!
