The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about education--not only in the traditional form. I appreciate experiencing and creating teachable moments. That feeling of looking at something in a new way and finding value in places that you didn't expect can be amazing. I love the moment when something 'clicks' for me, but even more so, I love the moment when I can help someone else experience that 'aha' moment.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy flower & garden, outdoor living and home improvement local shows. I also like to engage in meditation, Qi gong and some yoga classes. The state of true relaxation and just being is fantastic. Reading, good music and comedy are oldies, but goodies too!
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for honesty on multiple levels. It is important for someone to truly know what he wants out of life AND be willing to make changes if he is not where he wants to be. He should also value honesty with his partner. Good, honest communication is so important.
The first thing people notice about me
People tend to notice that I can be a little shy. The shyness usually fades as I get to know a person. Even through a quieter demeanor, my energy and spirit are apparent.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read The Favored Daughter for a book club. The book is about an Afghani woman who became a Parliament speaker. In the book she shares a lot of the devastation she faced. She also shared letters that she wrote to her daughters and her continuous fight for freedom and education for not only her daughters, but all women of her country. I enjoyed reading an unfamiliar story and the strength of a woman in difficult times.
The three things which I am most thankful for

The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish my sense of humor was noticed more. The truth is - I can be really funny and that's not always expected from the shy one.

A little more about me
I am a full figured woman and I think it is important to be clear about that. I am attractive, intelligent and a quality person. To save time on one of the questions I've gotten my entire life-yes, my naturual eye color is green. I'm definitley a thinker, it is a part of who I am. I can be a little kwirky at times, but that is just one of the things that make me special! I enjoy discovering and exploring my creativity in various ways, interior design, gardening, makeup, etc. I am not super adventurous, but I do have an adventorous side and can be daring at times. I enjoy new experiences and often like to push myself outside of my comfort zone
