The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about the outdoors. I love to camp and hike in the mountains or walk on the beach. I enjoy driving my convertible on trips in the country when the seasons change. I am passionate about my three adult children. I have many close friends; and I love to get together with family and friends to share in the holidays or a personal celebration. I am passionate about Bible study, as it is a great way to grow personally and spiritually.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy quiet time and I thrive around people. I actually need a little of both to be happy. I love to read during my down time. I belong to a hiking group, love the outdoors, and being with friends. One of my favorite pastimes is bicycle riding, but no extreme stuff, just the enjoy the scenery kind of biking! I belong to a gym (and get there occasionally.) I enjoy dinners out with friends, a good movie,or a concert; and I like the occasional museum tour for a special art exhibition.
The most influential person in my life has been
The most important quality I'm looking for is a man who's Christian in the real sense and is loving and non-judgmental, honoring and genuine. Another quality is the ability to enjoy life and all its surprises. Nothing is ever certain, and we go through great times and not so great times, but to be able to take situations in stride is a terrific quality. The only way to do that is with a sense of humor. Also, very important to me is someone who has a sense of adventure and the willingness to share life's adventures with me.
The first thing people notice about me
Well, I suppose that a smile is a physical attribute, but I get the most compliments about my smile. I guess going with that, it would be my laugh. I enjoy being with people and I let them know that.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The book Captivating, Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul, by John & Stasi Eldredge, really validated my heart and my dreams as a woman.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for my loving family and friends.
- I am thankful for my career and my home.
- I am thankful for my good physical and mental health.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Although I'm quiet, I am pretty easy to get to know.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Easy-Going, Perceptive, Respectful
A little more about me
I've spent the last several years, raising my three children by myself, to be responsible, loving adults. Now that I'm -more or less- free of parenting responsibilities, it would be great to have fun dating, and see if there's another special someone out there who would like to share life's great adventures.
