My passions are pretty widespread with an emphasis on good food, better wines, travelling to new places, and getting some beach time in where possible. Combine them all and you'll see me at my happiest. On a daily basis, variations of these passions include getting outdoors, riding down the strand, strolling through a farmer's market, hiking , camping, visiting the LACMA or stumbling onto an unknown gallery, cooking a great meal (different every time), or enjoying a memorable glass of wine for any reason bad or good.
I'm laid back with a tendency to be active. I'm open-minded while confident in my opinions. I'm often too thoughtful, however I rarely make a plan. I'm ever inquisitive yet instantly trusting. I'm a Southern raised liberal thinker, aged in the cultures of the places I've been and tempered by the broad range of people I've called friends. Overall, I'd like to think that balance is a big part of my life.
I have a problem with smiling; I can't stop doing it. Laughter and a big genuine smile follow me everywhere I go. Being a very optimistic person, I rely on a hearty laugh and big grin to keep me and the those around me in good spirits.
Of course I'm looking for someone that shares at least one of these passions, but what's most important is that you are also passionate and have a good idea about what you want out of life. Direction and confidence in the knowledge that you are following your bliss are immensely attractive.
Intelligence is also a huge plus, or should I say wisdom. :p Be it in the jungles of a foreign land or buried in the tomes of knowledge, I find that a girl that can think on her feet unequaled compared to others.
Turns out I didn't need all 4000 characters, but I'm sure that a real conversation will go much further than what you read here, so I look forward to opening up a fun dialogue that could lead anywhere.
