My beliefs and values are well defined; I know who I am and I know I have much to learn and be thankful for. I believe family is the biggest blessing we are given on this earth and it takes priority in my life.
Those close to me would describe me as a veridical paradox. I'm a hopeless romantic; though I don't really like chick flicks. I love to watch and play sports, but you will often find me in a SPA getting pampered or walking around town in my high heels. I am a well rounded person; I delight in sporting events just as much as I do at the orchestra. I love learning and need to be stimulated intellectually. I take great pleasure in traveling; languages and other cultures fascinate me. On the other hand, I treasure the more simple and quiet things in life, like fishing or simply spending a night at home with the family around the kitchen table.
As far as qualities in a guy; good character and substance are essentials. Common courtesy and chivalry will give you major points and take just as many away if it's not there. I'm old fashioned and really appreciate a guy who has initiative and can take the lead in a relationship. Healthy/creative fun and spontaneity is a must; ask me for breakfast at 3 pm or grab a last minute flight for the weekend and ask me to come along.
