Favorite thing about St. Louis… Lafayette Square and Forest Park are some magical places. The food scene here is thriving, and with the cost of living so low, you can actually afford to dine at nice places every once in a while. Everything is within a 15-minute drive.

I bet you didn't know that... I have perfect pitch. Some say it's from speaking a tonal language as a child, but I think it's from piano practice.
