The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about various subtleties: making connections between literary characters and real-life friends, vintage wine from a year I have loved, discovering what mainstream media leaves out of the daily news cycle, and sleeping late - whether intentionally or not.
I typically spend my leisure time
People watching, walking through Central Park, sipping wine from a sidewalk cafe, window-shopping on Madison Avenue...
The most influential person in my life has been
Oh, how I'd love to find a true gentleman: a man who has a core set of values and is good, honest, strong, intellectual, and chivalrous. I know this person exists, and I do not mind being patient. A season of waiting can be rich in creativity and inspiration.
The first thing people notice about me
I hope people notice that I care about being healthy in body, mind, and spirit.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I always have two or three books going at the same time a classic that I am often rereading, a book about Christianity, and a book that relates to educational philosophy.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- the laughter of my children
- how the colors of each season paint the trees different colors
- I can still fit into my high school prom dress. lol
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I can come across as shy, but I am actually very confident and bold.
Friends Describe me as
Generous, Loyal, Spiritual, Warm
A little more about me
As a national level swimmer for the first half of my life, athleticism and competition are at the core of my being. But the most important thing to know about me is that I thrive on making others feel good about themselves. It's more important to me that others are comfortable and calm, and I regularly place that priority above my own needs.
