My friends would probably describe me as a good listener, caring, dependable, easy going, and giving. I am ever the optimist, tend to look for and see the good in people/things vs. the bad, and you’ll probably always see me with a smile on my face. Initially, people might think I’m a bit shy and reserved, but once you get to know me/I know you, you’ll be quite surprised! People tend to feel comfortable talking to me and opening up, as they know I don't judge, but accept them for who they are.
I’m most thankful for my relationship with God, my two beautiful, smart, loving teenage children, and friends who are very supportive.
Things I love and can’t live without: a WIDE variety of music and enjoying concerts/live bands, trips to the beach, wine and wine tasting (a good red wine with good company just can’t be beat!), stand up paddleboarding/beach activities. Some of my favorite moments: watching a sunset at Shell Beach, the sound and smell of the ocean, a fire in the fireplace when it's raining outside, campfires in the mountains.
In my down time I enjoying playing softball, bbqs and hanging with friends, getting out of town. I grew up doing alot of camping and would love to do it more often but never seem to find the time. I am really up for doing just about anything! A few bucket list items to give you an idea of that variety: skydive, bungee jump, learn to surf, wine tasting in Napa, Zac Brown concert, visit Yellowstone.
Ideal vacation: anywhere tropical!
Characteristics of a friend/companion that I value: open communication, honesty, positive attitude toward life, can find the joy in the little things, a caring and loving nature, affectionate, enjoys the outdoors and nature, has a little adventurous side.
I believe there has to be a physical attraction and chemistry between two people. I’m an affectionate person: hugs, hand holding, snuggling on the couch watching a movie, a kiss in public isn't scary :)…you get the idea. I think there has to be a common bond in that respect. While I do believe having things in common is important, I don’t think that people have to have EVERYTHING in common. A little difference keeps things interesting, and challenges each other to explore new things…..new activities, new foods, new places to go….all good!
