I was born and raised in the Midwest, went to college in Boston then moved to NY in 2007. I'm a fun-loving perfectionist with a warm heart, intelligence, a strong work ethic and quirky sense of humor. For better or worse, I've never turned down a serious dare in my life. I'm always up for an adventure, whether staying at a 5-star hotel or sleeping under the stars. I believe family is important above all else. I’m funny, goofy and kind of clumsy-- beware of my lanky flailing limbs! I'm what women call a "fashionista" which means you will never understand the depths of my closet. I think good manners are a must and random acts of kindness go a long way. I never stop being in awe of the beauty in nature. I adore a man who wants to take care of me, but that doesn’t mean I’m not fiercely independent. I'm a total nerd but I gave up trying to fight it years ago... I'm pretty sure it's genetic? Proof: I can crush pretty much anyone at Scrabble, Taboo and 1000-piece puzzles. My best assets are big brown doe eyes and long legs. I cannot be trusted in a room full of puppies. Ever. I'm not religious but I believe in spirituality and having respect for others' beliefs. My guilty pleasures are bad reality TV and gossip magazines. I can and will take secrets to the grave. Although I’ve gone a month without a shower hiking through the backcountry, I can spend 2 hours getting dolled up for a night out. I don’t drink coffee but I wake up early every morning (even after nights out till 4am). And my best stupid human trick is touching my tongue to my nose.
My favorite things include the view from the top of a mountain, QT with family & friends, anything chocolate, wine & cheese picnics, lying on a beautiful beach, adorable creatures, staying up late reading, snuggling, traveling abroad, the bubbles in champagne, making baked goods, being outdoors, seeing movies on opening weekend, odd smells like fresh tennis balls and gasoline, and shopping until you drop (I never will).
I’m looking for a partner in crime with a heart of gold. The macaroni to my cheese, bread crumbs optional. I’m not into playing mind games, drama, or emotionally unavailable men. And please don't be crazy. Mr. Right should be kind, honest, intelligent, ambitious, loyal, funny, have an appreciation for the great outdoors and believe in true love! If this sounds like you, please shoot me an email. :)
