The one thing I am passionate about...
Friends, family, pets, God, art (creating it and appreciating it), architecture, anything having to do with green building or building homes at all, movies, tennis, the Olympics...(wahoo..I always cry when they play our national anthem) winter and summer, the ocean & any body of water even a pool, reading, listening to music, writing, recently decorating cakes, cupcakes and cookies and maintaining balance and sanity! Well trying to at least.
I typically spend my leisure time
Spending time with family &/or friends, watching movies, playing with my poochies, in the yard, house or at the dog park!
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty, if I can only list one.
The first thing people notice about me
My laugh! I have been told it's infectious!
The last book I read and enjoyed
It was actually a series of books: the "Twilight" books. I enjoyed them most because of the romance and action/suspense combo. A deadly combo. Of course I like most books I read although I haven't read a book in about a month, other than cook books, as I'm starting to bake cakes as a side business until it takes off or I find a good job.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My faith as it has helped me overcome some challenging and painful life changing events. God rocks!
- My friends who are the brothers and sisters I have chosen and are some of the most amazing, loving, generous, genuine, kind, intelligent and caring people on this planet!
- My family and pets, who bring love, laughter and joy into my life each and everyday and, like my friends, are the most precious part of my life!
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I've never thought about this before......I guess how strong my faith is, but they would know that immediately depending on what we were talking about.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Genuine, Outgoing, Romantic
A little more about me
I believe that all healthy long term love relationships have to have a core of friendship, respect and trust. There has to be attraction too in a romantic relationship too, but for it to be able to last past the honeymoon, everything is new, rosy, and perfect phase this core must be the foundation to be built upon.
