Laughter and a genuine interest in getting to know people are mine! Music not only inspires me but when my song comes on, I cannot help it...I am compelled to move. I most appreciate in life all of it's contradictions; i.e. clothing is extremely expendable yet the right outfit can provide confidence.
To step away from distractions, I like to hike or run outdoors while listening to Biggie or Tribe or Etta James and sitting outside, eating tapas (or anything on a breakfast menu), soaking up the sun is my idea of a perfect Sunday afternoon.
My varied interests and types of friends, I think are a reflection of the fact that I grew up in the Oakland Hills - Berkley area, attended college in Atlanta and then moved to NY to work in Fashion. Over the last 2 years I spent quite a bit of time working in London so I can fake a mean Madonna-esque Brit accent (especially after a glass of Riesling).
An intelligent, God-fearing man with a strong sense of self who wants to see a woman smile are traits I am most attracted to. And while I do enjoy being cooked for, I equally take pleasure in cooking for my man, so the ability to BE taken care of is also a "must".
