The one thing I am passionate about...
I appreciate the simplest things in life the most...a night under the stars, my favorite song coming on the radio, an unexpected event at my favorite wine bar, laughing so hard I cry, a long walk with the pooches, and a free afternoon that I can spend watching the sappiest movies--that's right, I love chick flicks. I try my best to live in the moment and not get too far ahead of myself...but, let's be real here--I'm a girl and it happens. :)I love to travel and have a never ending bucket list. I also love to cook but am not good at fixing anything unless it only requires duct tape...and then, I can get pretty creative :)
I typically spend my leisure time
Well, I spend my days managing a chiropractic office and my nights and weekends capturing people's moments on film. I love both of them for very different reasons and consider myself blessed to be able to do both. In between those things--I spend my time with my dogs, friends, family, and finding ways to better myself, because isn't that what it's all about? Becoming your best self....which is precisely why piano lessons sounded great a month ago.
The most influential person in my life has been
I very much view a relationship as a partnership..always a team, working together, pushing each other, and taking care of each other. I value honesty, trust, and humor in a relationship so if you want to laugh and you want someone who can make your friends laugh, then I'd love to meet you.
The first thing people notice about me
My glass-is-always-half full optimism. I've been through a lot and am still an eternal optimist....I think it speaks volumes for who I am.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I am currently reading a do it yourself book on remodeling bathrooms. We'll see how this goes. Ha.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Waking up each day
- My family and friends
- New Beginning
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I can be quiet when I first meet someone but it doesn't take me long to warm up.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I have a bucket list that inspires me to dream big. I've done a lot but always strive for more. I care about people and am a giver by nature. I care more about who you are than what you look like. I have two nephews who I love more than anything in the world...I love to sing. I believe you get what you give. I work hard so I can play harder. I love the rain and the smell of freshly cut grass. I do my best to live in the moment and never take anything for granted. I've learned the hard way that life is too short so I cherish the time I have with the people I love. I believe in happy endings. I also think I'm pretty funny :)
