The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my children, friends, and family and being the most genuine person I can be. I strive to improve myself, improve the lives of my family and friends, and the lives of others in my community. As for activities, I love to garden, hang out with my friends, exercise or play sports, and am a voracious reader. I also really like cultural activities, such as theater, symphony, museums, traveling.

The first thing people notice about me
My joi de vive and my youthful enthusiasm.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I am currently reading 1776. It is a detailed history of the players and the battles of the Revolutionary War. I loved the Biography of John Adams by the same author, David McCullough, but have not gotten very far in this book. I don't often read history, but I had to give this a try after finishing the Adams biography. Normally I read NY Times Best Seller literature novels and classics.
The three things which I am most thankful for

- My intelligence and my ability to constantly keep learning about myself and my world.

A little more about me
A description of me from a friend. Gregarious, intelligent, but modest. A great sense of humor that extends to being able to laugh at myself. A kind, honest, and loyal person who cares deeply about the people who are close to me and the world at large. I look for the good in people. I am very athletic and love being outdoors. I have a natural beauty, look good dressed up or in jeans, and can be at home at a fancy political event or a beer joint with sawdust on the floor, and everywhere in between.
