My family and friends mean the world to me. If I'm not hanging out with my favorite doggy, I'm either with my parents or with one or more of my many friends. I enjoy the simple things in life: listening to a thunderstorm through an open window, wandering down a trail in seach of fresh raspberries, lying in the sun with a book. I hope to live a long, rich life, so I try to take care of myself while still enjoying as much as possible. I'm easy-going and I love to laugh. I love learning how to do new things and experiencing new people and places. I like: playing with dogs, walking (with dog, of course), hiking, camping, fishing, reading, writing, cooking, jogging (ok, I don't like it, but I make myself do it), travelling, music, theatre, photography, goofing around with my nieces.... just hanging out - alone or with others.
