I keep the quote "People are as happy as they make up their minds to be" by Abe Lincoln tucked in the back of my mind.
Some of the things that make me happiest are: traveling, mountain biking, learning through books and new experiences, being an aunt and connecting to friends and family. I love to laugh and I'm interested in hearing about other people's lives.
I'm someone who has taken the road less traveled and has benefited greatly from experiences to better know what is important in life. I've learned to give more and take less and count my blessings in the process. I'm a person who enjoys her work and has a sense of purpose, but whose profession does not define her as a person.
I get along best with people who are light-hearted and fun, but also have depth, are open and growing and care about people. I'm attracted to positive people who are friendly and extroverted and who take care of their body. When it comes to love and relationships, I believe in the real deal. Chemistry is where it starts, so photos are key and not spending a lot of time before you find out if you have it makes sense to me.
