The one thing I am passionate about...
This is a difficult question! I have so many interests that I dabble in. I am a "jack" of all trades and master of none! My greatest passion has to be my children and showing them all the wonderful things life has to offer! I am also passionate about knowledge in general, and in particular I am most interested in the humanities--history, art history, world cultures and language. I was not born with musical talent but I have always tried to play guitar or piano. I am also passionate about my career as it involves a lot of "hands on" history! You'll have to ask if you want to know more! : )
I typically spend my leisure time
This would depend on what time of the year it is! In the summer I have my little escape on my boat. She?s always waiting for me down at the marina and offers me solitude when needed to read, write, rest, fish or explore! A great place to enjoy someone?s company or meeting new people.Playing tennis, riding bikes, swimming, picnics and rock climbing at ?Garden of the Gods?, going to concerts or just watching a good movie.
The most influential person in my life has been
Only one important quality? No... here's a few. Family oriented. Someone who can be herself and be able to communicate. Honesty, integrity, good looking, confident, smart and funny!
The first thing people notice about me
I don't really know what the first thing that people notice about me. I guess I'll have to find out and update this later!
The last book I read and enjoyed
Unfortunately I don't seem to find the time to read unless I have to. I'm usually forced to read educational material or self help books. My last book was "CRAFTING AND EXECUTING STRATEGY: The Quest for Competitive Advantage". Not fun at all! lol
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My children - well how could I not include them in things that I am thankful for. I have three children and each of them have touched my life and helped me to learn and grow. They have been the gifts of my life and continue to be a blessing every day.
- My parents- I was blessed with the greatest parents. They are the most caring and loving parents I have ever met. I am thankful for all that they taught me and how very deeply they love me and my whole family.
- Health- I am so thankful for the health and well being of my family. As I?ve gotten older, I am more aware that really taking care of my body is an important thing to do. I am thankful that I can stay active and keep up with all my children, especially my 25 year old son.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I think I come across more quiet and reserved at first because I was always taught to be a good listener. I am very outgoing and funny once you get to know me better and this doesn't get noticed right away.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Caring, Intelligent, Thoughtful
A little more about me
I am not a country boy, and I'm not into hunting, I'd rather do my hunting and gathering at a grocery store. I enjoy hanging out at the marina relaxing on my boat with family and friends. Having a camp fire along the river, listening to the water wash up on the sand, it's romantic, and the sites and sounds can take you to places you never knew existed. I crave adventure, but also enjoy a relaxing evening at home, or going to the movies. I love mutual affection and love being touched.
