The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about enjoying those moments in life when the world just seems to slip away. Relaxing in front of a campfire, watching the ocean, taking in a breathtaking view and realizing that is what life is all about. The moments of wonder we often fail to appreciate when we let ourselves get bogged down in the day to day.
I typically spend my leisure time
Spending time with my daughter who is 8. I have joint custody with my ex-husband and so I have her one week on and one week off. Camping, seeing live bands, reading, working out (satisfying afterwards anyway!), watching Nascar, traveling and recently I've come to enjoy hiking....I've got many varied interests, and while I could be partially classified as a redneck, I grew up in CT where nascar and country music were unheard of. So I think I'm a good mixture of it all :)
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty, laughter, emotional stability, passion, I can't pick just one! :) I want someone who would be willing to become a part of my life as much as I'd become a part of his, my best friend.
The first thing people notice about me
My friendliness and openness, I like to put people at ease and make them laugh.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm sorry to say that I like fluff. Happily ever after, all conflicts resolved, passionate embraces....i.e. romance novels. I would give you some of the titles but as I tend to read a lot this changes on an almost daily basis. I also like Tolkien, David Eddings and Terry Brooks. The fantasy genre has always captured my interest however I like the epic adventures and besides those three authors I have yet to find another who can enthrall me as deeply!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family - Daughter, Parents, Extended and Dog :)
- My life experiences - without them I wouldn't be who I am today and I'm pretty happy with that.
- I've finally found that inner strength that comes from knowing and accepting yourself, the good and the not always good.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish more guys would see that I'm not just that cool, funny chick who is sweet and easy to get along with...I can be just as mysterious as the next girl! Everybody has hidden facets to their personality! :)
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Easy-Going, Genuine, Optimistic
A little more about me
Why don't you ask me what you'd like to know? Eharmony thinks we could be a match, so why don't we take the next step and find out? :)
