The one thing I am passionate about...
Enriching the lives of others. Whether it's volunteering, entertaining (small get togethers / parties). I like to help others realize their potential & achieve their goals. Also, freedom, equality, my family & friends, learning, and fun. I enjoy helping people feel included and connecting them to others & helping people express themselves (through fashion, art, music, and writing). These things come naturally & I do them without thinking. The sense of fulfillment that comes from doing these activities is amazing and is what fuels me to live each day to the fullest.
I typically spend my leisure time
Simply put, exploring and learning. It's a good day when I've shared lots of laughs and grown. On a day off, I'm up and out by 7 & don't stop unti1 the early AM. Whether it's volunteering, lunching w/ a friend, checking out a museum, boutique, watching a game at a sportsbar, hiking, or playing team sports... it's all about fun & enjoying friends and the city. I also like bookstores, live music, attending a good lecture, going to the ballet, dancing, & small dinner parties. My interests are diverse & I am blessed to have a variety of folks to share those interests with.
The most influential person in my life has been
Self love, authenticity, & a relationship with God.
The first thing people notice about me
My laugh and my love of life.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Fierce Conversations. I read it for work, but I like that it challenges people to have real, authentic conversations in order to solve problems and build stronger friendships in the workplace and at home.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My parents' unconditional love, friendship, and counsel. Those close to me are real & candid.
- My diverse group of acquaintances and my solid friendships.
- Being alive. Everyday is a chance to learn, grow, love, and make an impact in the world.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Although I'm stylish and very fashion conscious (yes, I read InStyle like it's the Bible & my closet does look like a sample room from a fashion mag). I'm most comfortable in a tank top & jeans, on the back of a Harley, or spending a couple of hours watching football/basketball at a sports bar with a Guinness & my friends... of course, both the tank top and jeans are from this season :)
Friends Describe me as
Good listener, Perceptive, Thoughtful, Warm
A little more about me
My spirituality, i.e. my relationship with God is of the utmost importance to me. My partner would be someone who also puts that relationship before any other one.
