Hi there, this is me. Yes, I'm very tall. No, I don’t play basketball anymore (answer to the usual first question). I've been called a smarty-pants, a smart-aleck, and just plain smart. I smile a lot, hope you do too; life is good! :) "Shenanigans" is my favorite word ever! I love to laugh out loud and sometimes loudly. I'm a huge music-lover, everything from Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Mumford and Sons, Maroon 5, JT, The Lumineers, Coldplay, Adele, The Avett Brothers, and Ray LaMontagne to old 40s standards and rock classics like The Stones, The Beatles, MJ...but I worship U2. Is Bono a religion yet? I find business suits give me super powers at work, but I like playing dress-up for a night out, then jeans and a t-shirt for brunch the next morning. I'm obsessed with my iPad and iPhone, unabashedly in love with my SUV and an occasional PS3 junkie...proof a girl can kick your booty online playing MW3. But I do like to unplug - a big nature-lover, I get a natural high hiking to the top of any Griffith Park trail and running down. Yoga and meditation (briefly) almost every day grounds me. I'm ambidextrous yet klutzy, which makes the yoga challenging! Animals, especially horses and big goofy labs have a special place in my heart. Grown up kid, I absolutely love Disneyland at Christmas. Type-A personality at work, but in my personal life I'd love nothing more than to throw someone else the reins, like a proper lady. I'm honest but always with kindness and compassion. I accept the good with the bad, in myself and in those dear to me. Sweet, caring, hopelessly-devoted-to-you romantic hidden by an Amazon-warrior exterior - break through and you'll never be treated better! Driven, motivated, tenacious, accomplished and successful at work but striving for the balance more and more these days. Above all else, I know who I am (even if we're all a work in progress), and I'm happy - great family, friends, career, health - now just need someone to make life (and me) even better!
Is this you? You've got to be tall and secure enough, because I do still like to wear heels :). Be uniquely funny, hilarious if you dare, with wit beyond compare (ha - I just rhymed!). Have common sense and street smarts mixed with an above average IQ (points for good grammar and good spellers!). Be solid, stable - know who you are and what you want; that is, when you find it! Learn from baggage then check it to the curb. Open and honest, you say what you feel, even when it’s hard because you know it’s just fair. Have a passion in your life – I won’t judge – your prize collection of Star Wars figurines or base-jumping in exotic locales or the fact that you only wear colors of your favorite sports team – whatever it is, love it, own it and don’t make excuses for it. Attempt balance in life…confidence with humility, strength with vulnerability, selfishness with compassion, sexiness with cuteness, work with play. Be cool on the outside but embrace your inner dork.
Congrats for making it to the end...or is it the beginning?!
