The one thing I am passionate about...
I love being outdooors and on the water, part of the reason I live in Duluth (it certainly isn't because of the spring weather :() There is nothing better then to be on an island in voyageurs national park, with a bottle of wine, someone you care about , and a campfire, listening to the loons. I also like to share new experiences with someone, be it a new restaurant, a new city, a new country, or just a new movie or book. There is something about both experienceing something for the first time that adds to the excitement and thrill of the discovery. Getting to share those moments with someone you care about are what are important to me.
I typically spend my leisure time
Sitting around a campfire, with a glass of red wine on a beautiful night with just enough chill in the air that you want to snuggle up.I enjoy waking up in the morning, sharing a cup of coffee as you read through the newspaper, see what acitivities are available or make plans for getting somethings done around the house. Working together makes it less like work.If I can I love to be on the water or beach, if in Minnesota, maybe fishing as the sunsets, or going for a cruise around the lake. If someplace in the tropics drinking rum drinks and watching the sunset as you listen to the waves.
The most influential person in my life has been
Looking for someone who isn't afraid to try new things and go new places. Someone who enjoys to cuddle on the couch or around the campfire, who likes a cold beer as well as a glass of red wine. Someone who is independant, but still wants to be with their partner because they want to not because they need to. Someone who has an opinion when asked what they would like to do, is not afraid or timid to speak up. Someone who can hold their own in a conversation with people she has just met at a party, but still likes a knowing touch or glance from their partner to let them know they care.
The first thing people notice about me
My smile and infectious laugh. I may look big and tough, but deep down I am a big teddy bear at heart.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Anything by Vince Flynn, also started reading Ken Follet lately. I did read the first installment of Fifty Shades, just to see what it was all about...wow.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- A am thankful for my family and the support that they have given to me over the years.
- I am thankful that my kids are growing into outstanding young men.
- I am thankful that I have a job that I love and am well compensated for.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
How caring and gentle I am.. My size sometimes intimidates people, but I'm really a teddy bear.
