The one thing I am passionate about...
I love my job, but it's not all of who and what I am. My son and the relationship we've built over his life are incredibly important to me; he's one of my closest friends. I love exploring, whether it's a new subject or an old one, a road trip, or conversations with interesting people.
I typically spend my leisure time
I'm a knitter and, yes, I have too much yarn stashed away. So. Expect hand-knit items. Reading is a huge passion. I'll read anything well-written. Also love music of all kinds, movies, some sports, hiking, motorcycle riding, random road trips/travel, rambling conversations, adventure...
The most influential person in my life has been
There's no one most important thing. I'm more of a whole package kinda gal. If I had to pinpoint just a few traits, then honesty, intelligence, and a wacky sense of humor would be the top three, followed closely by thoughtfulness and a love of adventure.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm tall for a short person. Seriously. I get that a lot.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm reading Gunslinger by Stephen King and am enjoying the heck out of it.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My son and family
- The written word
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am incredibly kind. Such a softie, especially for kids.
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Funny, Intelligent, Kind
A little more about me
The hockey thing above. I've never watched much hockey, but seeing a live game (are they called games???) is on my bucket list, so I stuck it in there. Then again, so are seeing a live soccer game in Australia and watching rugby in New Zealand. I have a wide variety of interests, love a good conversation with a friend or a small group of people. Random road trips! I take the road less traveled, then I go back and try the road more traveled just to see the difference.
