I am a positive, upbeat, adventurous person always looking to learn and improve. I enjoy traveling, trying new restaurants, cooking, wine, sports, music, culture, and just about anything active outdoors. I believe that life is too short to sweat the small things, and that understanding how to approach problems with perspective is key. To me, the glass is always half full and every opportunity possible to laugh and break a smile is a must. Keeping an active relationship with family and friends is essential. While maintaining an active lifestyle is a priority to me, staying in and relaxing from time-to-time is important also. I am looking for a positive, open minded woman who is driven and exhibits diversity in personal interests and hobbies. Someone who loves displaying her feminine side and dressing up for a formal evening but also feels comfortable exploring a hiking trail or kayaking. A woman who is self aware, introspective, expresses her feelings, and is understanding of others.
