The one thing I am passionate about...
I love to travel! I enjoy experiencing other cultures and taking the time out of a busy life to stop and smell the roses. I just started whitewater kayaking, and would like to pursue that further. I'm crazy about the beach, and all the different activities one weekend on the coast has to offer! I try to stay in shape because it makes me feel great both physically and mentally. I enjoy social situations, and love meeting new people from all walks of life, because it makes me appreciate what I have and all I have experienced that has shaped me into the person that I have become.
I typically spend my leisure time
As I said before, I am a big fan of whitewater kayaking! I just started, so I'm not that great, but really enjoy being on the water and the adrenaline rush that comes with it. I like to go camping, and spending time in the outdoors with my kids. I really enjoy gardening as well.
The most influential person in my life has been
A sense of humor is a must!! There are always times to be serious, but life is much more fun when there is somebody to laugh with. I can appreciate someone who doesn't take themselves too seriously.
The first thing people notice about me
My open-minded nature. I can relate to many different people on various levels. Regardless of age, background, social status, I find something interesting in just about every person I meet, and I think that people are fascinating.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Eat, Pray, Love. I enjoy reading, but don't always find the time. When I'm not with my kids, I generally enjoy interacting with other people, whether its with a friend, family member, or a social event.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My ability to make the most of any situation
- My inquisitive nature that allows me to try new things
- My family and the health of my children.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My sweet disposition. I don't know how to elaborate on that without sounding like I'm tooting my own horn or bragging. I have a big heart, and if I care for somebody, I will often bend over backwards to make them happy.
