UPDATE I am in my new apartment, my address on Swap-Bot has been updated
I am a quirky, petite, Italian girl who's in love with photography...and food. Those two are battling for favorite at the moment. I recently moved to NYC (edit: I've lived here for 7 years now!) but I am originally from Florida and I keep asking myself why I left! My hobbies include walking (I do a lot of this), cooking/baking, photography, visiting museums, crafting, trying new things.
I am a wedding photographer and just love being a part of the most important day of people's lives. I love soaking in other people's happiness. And those vows?! I'm lucky if I can make it through a wedding without crying.
Sustainability is important to me. This is a recent interest but I've become very passionate about eliminating waste and being more conscious of how I'm contributing to environmental problems. It's easy to take the first steps (i.e. reusable shopping bags, cloth towels instead of napkins, composting, etc).
Some other things I like include:
Future goal: keep being happy.
Harry Potter, 100% yes. I'm not a fan of Twilight, definitely not. I love Michael Crichton, which is surprising because I'm not big into sci-fi books otherwise. Nonfiction (or nonfiction inspired) humor is my absolute favorite genre. I am just a big fan of laughing :) Recently, I've been reading Maeve Binchy. I don't usually read those types of stories but she's a great writer. Also, books about food or written by chefs a favorite genre. I can never seem to find enough time to read. I have a pile of books on deck that I'm desperately trying to get to. I can't read fast enough!
Jack Johnson, Coldplay, Bon Iver, Grizzly Bear, John Mayer, Keane, anything folksy acoustic. I love finding new music to listen to. I have an eclectic taste when it comes to music and depending on my mood, will listen to anything from worldbeat to jazz, to rock. I'm not a big fan of country unless it's got a bit of pop and definitely not a fan of heavy metal.
All time favorite movie: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (closely followed by A Lot Like Love). LOVE LOVE LOVE Moana. I like a lot of indie films and dark comedies.
Paper crafts, knitting/crocheting, jewelry making, mixed media, drawing, painting. I want to get into watercolor but I haven't had too much time to craft lately.
I love trying new things. I just started making a list of things I want to get to eventually (hopefully sooner rather than later):
*ukelele (I have one I play occasionally)
*making my own herbal tinctures
*write my own cookbook
*gesture drawings (I did this in college)
*chocolate candy making
