The one thing I am passionate about...
Many things. My amazing and supportive family and friends. Cooking and experimenting in the kitchen, working out, eating healthy, getting outside as much as possible, volunteering, civil rights issues, continually learning, challenging myself, and finding someone with whom I can see the world and share life.
I typically spend my leisure time
Running and being outside; dinner, drinks, and good conversation (or debate) with friends; and cooking. I'm also a political news junkie--a Sunday morning ritual. And I recently started taking Spanish lessons again, which has been fun.
The most influential person in my life has been
I love people who are genuine, true, and can laugh at themselves. I'm looking for a great guy who is excited about life, kind, confident, will dance with me in the kitchen, and who, at the end of the day, will be my best friend.
The first thing people notice about me
Probably that I'm pretty easy going and do what I can to help people around me feel comfortable.
The last book I read and enjoyed
LOVE and use The Flavor Bible (cookbook) regularly. Does that count?! Have been trying to get through The Nine (about the Supreme Court) for quite a while, so while that sits on my nightstand, I'm reading The Book Thief.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family - I know I can always count on them.
- Humor - life would be grueling without it.
- Airplanes - to explore.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I don't know. I think I'm pretty okay with what people notice and what they don't. Strange question.
Friends Describe me as
