The one thing I am passionate about...
First and foremost, I'm passionate about my family. Family always comes first. I also love my job, my dogs, and outdoor activities (hiking, walking, biking, etc.). Reading is one of my favorite pastimes, as is exploring Los Angeles--this city has so much to offer! I love to travel. I have several trips planned (some far away, some more local). But honestly, if I'm spending time with the one(s) I love, I'm happy doing whatever.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to be outdoors--hiking, hanging out at the beach, or walking through downtown. In my downtime, I read. A lot. And I love to eat.
The most influential person in my life has been
My best friend and the love of my life. Someone with a great sense of humor. Kindness and intelligence are also crucial. Someone with whom I can hang out and enjoy myself, no matter what we're doing. Someone who gets the fact that, as a mostly single mom, my life can get crazy sometimes. Someone who trusts that I will make time for them. Someone who loves kids and agrees with me that dogs are family.
The first thing people notice about me
My outgoing personality.
The last book I read and enjoyed
After the Ecstasy, the Laundry: How the Heart Grows Wise on the Spiritual Path, by Jack Kornfield. Radical Acceptance, by Tara Brach. Anything by Michael Chabon. Also, The Language of Bees, by Laurie R. King
