The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about connecting with family and friends. I'm passionate about doing things with people I care about, tugging ourselves off the beaten path, and discovering new sights and sounds. I'm passionate about being healthy in a way that includes ice cream and excellent red wine. I love new experiences while embracing the familiar, enjoy conversation that's engaging and entertaining, and want to make a difference in the world, even if it's just in our small corner.
I typically spend my leisure time
I like to get outside -- walking, biking, hiking. I also really enjoy traveling. Stay-at-home might be a movie or bingeing on Netflix, cooking, reading, or figuring out how to fix the dang faucet (I'm kinda hopeless on that count).
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for someone interesting, balanced, kind, intelligent, and confident & comfortable in their own skin.
The first thing people notice about me
Aside from my appearance, I think that people notice my willingness to make connections with others and to interact with a wide range of people. I have presence in the moment.
The last book I read and enjoyed
In the Heart of the Sea. I love historical fiction. Most of the books in my queue are fiction but I also read memoirs, business books, magazines (especially travel or NatGeo)...
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Family and friends - they make it all worthwhile
- Health - makes all things possible
- Optimism -- makes every day enjoyable
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm friendly and interested in others - as a result, some people may assume that I'm a total extrovert. Actually, there's a bit of shyness underneath, and I appreciate some measure of down time and quiet to balance out my social self. I'm self-reliant while quite devoted and loyal to my friends and family.
Friends Describe me as
Generous, Loyal, Optimistic, Spontaneous
