I am a fun, soulful person who loves to laugh, dance, listen to a good story, go snow tubing with my three teens, and appreciate life. I can cry while watching It’s A Wonderful Life and laugh hysterically at Christmas Vacation. I love theater, museums (but only for about two hours and then it’s art brain freeze), Pandora, hiking (used to live in Boulder, CO and loved it), kayaking, organic food, alternative energy and holistic medicine. The Apple store is very alluring to me--I like to ogle all of the sleek Mac products--I figure I can vicariously become computer savvy just by high frequency brain wave immersion.
I was married for 19 years and have been separated/ divorced for a year and a half, so I figure it’s time to get back in the saddle again--feeling a bit like Tom Hank’s character in Sleepless in Seattle.
I am honest, caring, adventurous and what one might call a soul searcher. I am a big fan of Jane Austen, Pina Bausch, Mumford and Sons, Mozart, Abraham Hicks, David Whyte, the enlightened ones (Jesus, Buddha, and my kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Trout), Andy Goldsworthy and legos.
My three teenagers are a priority in my life. I have been blessed with three incredibly creative, loving, healthy children that challenge me in every way. They have always been my greatest teachers.
My friends say that I am very "European" but that's probably because I drink my coffee out of a French press. A European dream of mine is to bike the Loire Valley with my kids--I did the castle bike tour with my sister years ago and can still remember the fields of lavender and sunflowers and then suddenly a castle looms up in the distance--pure magic.
So, I think a good way to get a sense of someone is from what magazines they own, so in my magazine rack you would find Martha, Yoga, Spirituality and Health, and Dwell. I guess (like all of us) I have an array of interests.
What I look for in a partner and friend? Honesty, likes to laugh (especially at my lame jokes), has an open mind, but mostly takes self-responsibility for their health, their actions, and their joy.
Macklemore sums it up nicely
"Raise those hands, this is our party
We came here to live life like nobody was watching"
