is this a joke? I feel like I'm writing a singles' ad. No, really. I like my kids & dogs, going to the beach, biking, running, lifting, yoga, pilates, camping, kayaking, seeing a live show, socializing, withdrawing from overload, hiking, swimming, anything educational. I also deeply, deeply love my truck & my bicycle. I can also ski.
