The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about ALOT of things. My passion is visible to even casual acqaintances - I am bursting at the seams with it! I guess the thing that I feel most strongly about is being positive as much of the time as possible - learning from my mistakes - never allowing myself to think that I am done growing and being open to new ways of dealing with life. I am very passionate about raising my kids in a way that will send them into the world well-prepared, making sure the people in my life know on a daily basis how much they mean to me, and finding that inexplicable, undeniable, chemistry with someone -
I typically spend my leisure time
I spend alot of time with my daughter, 13 and time (when he's around) with my 18 yr. old son. My days of them wanting to hang out with Mom are somewhat numbered and so I try to make that somewhat of a priority. Besides, they're COOL!! I love to read, ride horses, THE BEACH, road trips, laughing, singing, love-making (in all senses). I love little kids, bike riding, walking, football,chick flicks, cooking, giving a massage, getting one!!
The most influential person in my life has been
Another tough question - THE most important quality in my "person" would probably have to be that their world is a better place with me in it and that whatever holes they have in their soul, I am able to fill. Someone who is open-minded - honest - someone who is high-energy and low baggage although we all have some. Someone adventurous in the bedroom and out of the bedroom, someone confident but humble - someone funny but able to be serious - someone with courage and strength - someone who says what they mean and means what they say -someone who has perspective, doesn't sweat the small stuff and is generally happy just to be here.
The first thing people notice about me
That I am happy and enthusiastic and excited about life most of the time - the guys I work with call me "miss happy" - I am all the way, 100%, over the top ALIVE.
The last book I read and enjoyed
MARLEY AND ME!! Oh my gosh, it was INCREDIBLE. If you're a dog lover and have had the experience of raising one from puppyhood and love to read true stories that get you right where you live, this is a MUST READ!! Am currently reading Eat, Pray, Love which is also FABULOUS.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My faith
- My kids
- My happy soul
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am painfully easy to read and anxious to share myself - I think the things about me that I want noticed, usually are!

A little more about me
I am excited about life these days. I don't NEED a realtionship to be happy, but I sure would love to find one that's healthy and mutual and rewarding and I am prepared to work at it and relax about it - all at the same time. I know myself, never completely as I strive to only know myself more, but I do know I am capable of great, deep, true love.
