The one thing I am passionate about...
I am a very caring, understanding person who enjoys life to its fullest. These last few years I have truly realized that life is too short to be remotely unhappy. I enjoy good wines and great beers. Love to cook and eat, entertaining, love the movies and practically all the city has to offer. I am a visual person, who appreciates and seeks out good design.
I typically spend my leisure time
I do see movies and the occasional play, read, watch tv, go to random events and lectures, go to art exhibits, take a class here and there, cook and bake, hike, kayak, sail, go to yoga as often as I can, travel for work and vacation. I am also perfectly happy to lie in a hammock and watch the clouds roll by.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who is self aware and wakes up daily and celebrates whatever it is that makes him happy. You are open minded, yet traditional. Spontaneous, yet grounded. Be more apt to smile than other facial contortions. Open for discussions both deep and light. Your passion is contagious, even if it?s about the philosophy behind fortune cookies.
The first thing people notice about me
I have joy for life - every moment. Sweet, yet sarcastic. Occasionally wicked, but always kind. I usually laugh out loud when I'm not supposed to...
The last book I read and enjoyed
Right now I'm reading The Billionaire's Vinegar by Ben Wallace. It's a great book about the most expensive bottle of wine that was supposedly owned by Thomas Jefferson. It makes me thirsty...
The three things which I am most thankful for
- for my amazing family and friends
- opportunities that come into my life to help me learn and grow
- my health (plus Dr Pepper chapstick...)
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Easy-Going, Funny, Happy
A little more about me
I am many things, and many opposites. I am playful and deep, and feel equally comfortable in a pencil skirt and in a hiking outfit. I know where I am going and I am open to the many paths that the world offers. I can easily be the center of attention and the helper behind the scenes, I am a city girl who loves the outdoors, I am a dreamer and a planner, I believe that everything can change and I hold my values close to my heart. I give my heart to the world and I have healthy boundaries. I have fun having a cocktail with my friends and as much fun babysitting their children. I believe in working out as much as I believe in desserts.
