I've lived in Asheville for going on two years. I'm from Colorado originally, and have lived all over the country. I love travel and road trips, and have been to 41 of the 50 United States. I now live with my husband and our dog on our own little plot of heaven turned backyard homestead in West Asheville- we raise chickens for eggs and rabbits for meat and fur. I love to hike and camp, and Western North Carolina has been great for that.
Creativity is a huge part of my life: I love playing music (I've played ukulele for 8 years, and play lots of other stringed instruments as well) and I am pretty obsessed with crafting the perfect playist for any occasion. I love belly dance and yoga- I'm always looking to do more of those things! I occasionally like to paint silly things, do crafty projects (like paper crafts/scrapbooking), and I love taking pictures of beautiful things around me. I also read, all the time! I refinish furniture professionally, and am always learning more and getting better at that.
I love the sharing economies that the internet has brought to my life. Couchsurfing, Airbnb, Meetup, and now Simbi! I've hosted a ton of couchsurfers and airbnbers from all over the world and it's been an amazing experience to meet people from so many walks of life.
