The one thing I am passionate about...
Maybe it sounds strange, but I'm passionate about imagining where I'll be in 5-10 years. I don't try to predict with any kind of certainty what the future has in store, but my priority is and always will be to just be happy. In my free time, I like to unwind by cooking, being with my family, loving on my old puppies, riding horses, hiking and practicing yoga.
I typically spend my leisure time
Taking walks with my sister, doing yoga, watching "Sherlock" on Masterpiece Theater and cooking. I'm actually quite good! Not, "Look! I made lasagna," and uhhh....that's a Stouffer's, but legitimately good.
The most influential person in my life has been
Chemistry, humor and fidelity. I want to be with someone I really respect. If he can help me boil crawfish, all the better! I tend to be drawn to masculine, traditional, low-key types who enjoy the same simple things that I do, such as spending a pretty day outside, weekend road trips to go camping, or barbequing with friends.
The first thing people notice about me
That I will find something to laugh about in just about any situation!
The last book I read and enjoyed
Right now, I'm reading "Telegraph Days," by Larry McMurtry, and before that I was reading "Blood Meridian." I'm working my way through "Saintly Solutions" a little at a time. It talks about the different day-to-day, and spiritual challenges various saints encountered throughout their lives, how they dealt with those challenges, and how we can apply their wisdom in today's world.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My struggles because they lead me to prayer.
- My sister because she's awesome, but also because she reminds me to look to God when I forget.
- That I'm not afraid of change.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish perserverance was a visible quality because I've got plenty of that. Also, I'm extremely outgoing, but the minute I see a guy who stops me in my tracks, I become really shy. I don't know when that started, but it's kind of inconvenient.
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Funny, Genuine, Loyal
A little more about me
First of all, I'm matched with guys who are pretty far away, and some who are very far - this isn't a problem to me. If it's great, I'll put forth the effort. I'm a certified yoga instructor, and I often think about teaching yoga at a mountain resort. I really enjoy my job in luxury retail because it allows me to be artistic, but someday I want to devote myself to a family. People are always surprised that a girl who loves fashion would trade it to get back on a Montana ranch, but I'm 100% afflicted with wanderlust. I love playing outside. I'm just a hippie with a lot of interests!
