I am an intelligent, open hearted and fun-loving woman, who has lived enough life to know what she wants and what she needs. I am hoping to find a partner ready for the same. I fairly recently changed careers, becoming a yoga teacher, which has been one of the most positive and challenging experiences of my life. I also design jewelry, combing my love of nature with artistic design, using natural gems and stones. I love music and getting out to see my favorite bands live is one of the best ways to spend an evening. I adore getting out in nature in all seasons, hiking and backpacking or a simple walk in the woods. I enjoy the occasional night out but enjoy nights in cooking together and watching a movie too. Spending time with close friends brings a lot of joy to my life. I am looking for a partner who is open-minded, adventurous, healthy, and funny--handsome, of course, but that may come from inside. He should be financially secure, but not a workaholic. He should appreciate nature and if not a hiker already, be open to giving it a try. He should be flexible and easy going, open hearted and caring, able to give love and also able to receive--as I have a lot of love to give!

Food: I have a love hate relationship with food. I love it. It hates me. (We can get into that later ;) I try to eat healthy, organic, local food whenever possible. I am gluten free and (mostly) processed sugar free. I do indulge from time to time as I have a rather large sweet tooth. I enjoy many ethnic cuisines and am eager to try new things.
