The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about the people and things I love. My best friends would tell you that it's very obvious what those things are when I discover them because I don't just "do" them, I "DO" them. I also can't hide the joy in finding them. I love when I can find a way to be creative and do something special for the people I care about. I'm also passionate about my work. I'm fortunate to have a job where I can help and support people on a daily basis. Of course, every day isn't perfect. But, the vast majority of the time, I feel like what I do and how I interact with people makes a difference. It
I typically spend my leisure time
I'm a movie-aholic. I'll watch pretty much anything except for the really scary stuff. I also enjoy really well-written TV shows and occasionally a couple that are pretty mindless :-). We'll call the last group my guilty pleasures. Who would pass up a great lunch/dinner? Whether cooking, grilling or going out, I enjoy good food and great company! I'm also a St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan! I listen to the games in the car or at work whenever they're on during the day and I almost always have it on TV when I'm home at night during the season.
The most influential person in my life has been

My friends tell me I should put "caringness" as the answer to this question, but since that's not really a word, we'll say kindness. Apparently, you can see it in my smile :-)
The last book I read and enjoyed
Oh, let's call it chicklit. I'm a total sucker for romantic movies, but I'm pretty picky about the books I read. I like easy reads, but what makes them easy to read is good storytelling. When I'm lucky enough to find a really good one, I'm a voracious reader, sometimes finishing in one sitting--day or night. I enjoy reading modern stories about friendship and love--stories that make me feel good! The last book I read was Nora Roberts, "Happy Ever After." My favorite book however, is called "Savor the Moment."At a friend's suggestion, I've ventured out of my comfort zone and I'm currently rea
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family. I completely lucked out on the parents.
- My friends. Wish we all lived closer together, but we find ways to stay connected.
- My goddaughter, who brings me unending joy and whose little voice melts my heart.

Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I'm kind of a homebody. I love going out and spending time with family and friends, but I also really appreciate some cozy time at home too.I'm also very independent. I'm looking for someone who can appreciate that!I love to travel - simple road trips through the wine country to hopping on a plane or cruise ship. I enjoy sightseeing, history, nature in all its glory, and of course...relaxation.
