The one thing I am passionate about...
I always want to be creating SOMETHING. What I create isn't as important as the process I go through in the creation. I like to take photographs, work on my art journal, write stories, or work on perfecting a new recipe. I like taking an idea then planning, doing, and finishing the project.
I typically spend my leisure time
I like playing games with my kids, grabbing a cup of coffee and catching up with my friends, curling up with a good book, or watching a good show on TV. Love, love, LOVE a live sporting event too! Seahawks! Blazers! Portland Beavers! (I know, I know they are gone, but I still enjoyed watching them!)
The most influential person in my life has been
Trustworthiness... I'm looking for someone that I can trust to keep the lines of communication open. Someone that has similar wants and desires when it comes to being in a meaningful relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
People tend to notice that I am friendly and social, and that I quickly catch on, or adapt to, whatever situation I find myself in.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read so often that updating this would take a lot of time... I recently read the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. They are campy, funny, outrageous, and have such wonderfully endearing characters. They are a quick easy read, and at times they had me actually laughing out loud. Great fun.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My children are my greatest gift. I never wanted kids when I was growing up, but the lessons they have taught me, and the love I feel for them is a source of constant pleasure and amazement for me.
- I am thankful to live in the United States and thank the men and women in uniform that allow us the lives and liberties we enjoy as Americans.
- I am thankful that I have the things that so many people take for granted: a good job, health insurance, my own home ,good friends, etc.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish people could see that behind the bubbly exterior there is a sensitive, loving individual that is just as vulnerable and excited by possibilities as they are.

A little more about me
I recently rediscovered how much I enjoy exercising and improving my fitness. I'm a happy work in progress. The best way to find out more about me is to ask. I'm looking forward to it.
