I enjoy creating delicious concoctions in the kitchen, working said treats off with a run, perusing quaint bookstores, drinking decaf iced caramel macchiatos and chatting on the phone with loved ones who live too far away. Favorite place in the world is anywhere with Tank, my retired therapy dog, who decided early into his career he would rather play fetch, chew on sticks and lounge on a couch than be therapeutic.
