The one thing I am passionate about...
There simply can't be one thing to be passionate about. When it's football season (if we get there) it's all about fantasy football. In everyday life there's always something to take a picture of. I like capturing the moments and things in my photography. I'm addicted to traveling! Trying new restaurants, cooking, getting out of the city and enjoying the outdoors are all things that make me smile and are hugely important to me.
I typically spend my leisure time
taking the perfect picture, driving with the top down and smelling the salt air, sharing time with loved ones
The most influential person in my life has been
Yin to my yang. The missing pieces that provide balance and the 'stuff' that enhances me, makes me grow, learn, experence and be more. That really encompasses the 'whole package' vice one quality. Passion about life, zest and curiosity for learning and experiencing life, emotionally open with intelligence and well-balanced. What I mean by that is living quietly and with adventure -- not at the same time, of course ;)
The first thing people notice about me
My eyes, they never hide my emotions or the mood I'm in. Oh, I suppose that is a part of my appearance....
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read a lot, but what is escaping me is a book that I captured me so much that I can describe it here. Sad, huh? One of my favorite books is Marley and Me. The book was 100x better than the movie. It made me laugh, cry and simply made me happy. There is nothing better than 'puppy love' to make any day better. Another one is Lost Girls: 3 friends give everything up to travel the world for a year. The adventure and the lessons -- wow I'd love to do that.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The people who have CHOSEN to love me
- the beauty of simple things; the smell after rain, birds chirping, a great swell for surfing,the sweetness of fresh fruit, my best friend's voice, a genuine smile
- the resources, desire and ability to travel and see new places
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm not sure if I want the world to know how deeply I feel. I tend to mask it well until I know someone and then they are surprised that I'm deeper than I appear.
Friends Describe me as
Genuine, Intelligent, Loyal, Perceptive
A little more about me
I am not afraid of any questions. Questions are how we get to know the other. No topic should be unapproachable, we will eventually get to it anyway.
