I pour a lot of time and energy into my business, and I am passionate about growing it a lot more in the next few years! I would like to tell you more about it, but that will have to wait until we've met in person. I'm too easy to find/Google, and I do wish to uphold a certain level of privacy on this site. I just uploaded my profile on 1/10/13, and already I've run across the profiles of a few of my male friends by chance, so that just proves what a small world it can be here in ATX.
As a mother, I have discovered that I am a great caretaker, and I will fiercely guard your health and well-being, and strive to help the whole family move towards healthier and healthier lifestyle choices. I know a ton about nutrition, my kitchen gets used constantly day-in/day-out...in fact, it's hardly ever completely clean anymore, because there is always something juicing, soaking, slow-cooking, and dehydrating. I'm experienced in macrobiotics, raw living, some Ayurveda, and herbal remedies. I'm recently trying on a grain-free Paleo way of eating, trying to find the right fit for my current body/health needs. I eat very well, although I wish I could say the same thing about my PBJ-loving child who is fixated on all things bread (granted, he does love steamed Kale, broccoli, asparagus, and some other odd stuff that you wouldn't expect a 3.5 y.o to like!).
I used to teach yoga for about 8 years, and I traveled all over the country for my creative work...all before my son came along. Now, life and work is pretty stable and rooted here in Austin. I haven't been able to travel much in the past 4 years, but I feel that door opening up again now.
I still very much live a 'city' way-of-life, but I fancy the idea of having more space and open land, and a fabulous organic garden, and free-range chickens, and I'd love some goats for fresh goat milk and cheeses, but I've been told their horrifically filthy and smelly, so I'm not sure how that would really look in reality, but it doesn't stop me from dreaming about a more sustainable-living, "connected to nature" way of life. But I would only do this if I had a partner who valued the same things. Let me add to that vision: an outdoor shower, surrounded by greenery, a huge back porch overlooking a vista to enjoy a glass of local organic wine at sunset with you, or an a.m. meditation and yoga practice in the gentle morning breeze (you could join in, if you like, but not required)... Oh, and please, get me to the ocean! The white sand, aquamarine waters kind! I would live in the tropics, if I could...if you wanted to, too. Eating fresh fish, coconut water, wearing sarongs all day, walking barefoot, digging deep in the sand together (my favorite movie as a very young girl was the Blue Lagoon), riding a vintage beach cruiser all over a small, sleepy island town. Maybe one day I will, if our visions unite. But I'd also be happy with spending summers somewhere by the ocean every now and then.
I also love summers in the mountains. I lived in Colorado for 10 years, and my favorite weekend getaways were Aspen, Steamboat Springs (Strawberry Hot Springs by magical daylight, anyone?), Hot Sulfur Springs, Telluride, Glenwood Springs. Did I mention how much I love hot springs? The more rustic, the better.
You won't find me in bars of any kind really, anymore. I occasionally have some wine with a meal, or premium sake with sushi, but that's about it. I prefer quiet talks and long walks, and being outdoors (so long as it's warm). I cuddle indoors on cold days, and enjoy movies together and good books and hot tea and hot baths and cooking and eating delicious nurturing foods and staying in PJs or staying in bed together half the day.
Here in Austin, my main physical activities are hiking, S.U.P. or kayaking on Townlake, or bicycling around. When I was in CO, you'd find me snowshoeing or skate-skiing in winter, mountain-biking and rollerblading in summer. I miss those things a lot. I miss the hot springs the most!
My son's dad left the picture when I was 3 months pregnant, and he followed a career to Singapore, and has been there ever since, so he's not been around to be all that much of a dad. He's "Skype Daddy" who comes to visit once a year. That should give you some idea of the demands that have been on me as a parent. I don't get many breaks, and quality time for myself and/or a potential partner will have to be carved out slowly and intentionally, and I feel it's important for me to share that with you going in. But love finds a way, and space is created where meaning is found.

You should respond to me if I've messaged you...that means I'm really, really interested in getting to know you, and have to be pretty inspired by your online presence to take the initiative to say hi. Let's talk or email and find out if there's a good pull to connect further.
I would like to meet as soon as possible, if there's even a hint of mutual interest, so we can find out more about each other in person. I base a lot on first impressions, chemistry, and intuition...profiles are just well-crafted snapshots of the ideals we make of ourselves...and say little of whether or not we'd truly make a good match.
I'm looking for someone with which to create/design "our perfect life". I'm so open to and excited about all of your ideas that you will bring into the partnership that will expand me (us) and grow me in more ways along with you. I believe a person can only grow so much, limited by his/her own..well...limitations. We grow through our relationships...something I've been made keenly aware of lately, seeing how much my relationship with my child is asking me to grow (up) in order to help him grow effectively. Without healthy attachment to others, we are only half of who we could be. Our closest relationships force us to look at ourselves in the mirror, and truly reflect on what's working, and what is not. And challenges us to find the courage to address issues that lay dormant when we only have ourselves to consider.
I seek someone who is looking to shape a positive life together through mutual feedback, great passion, deep love, kindness and respect for each other, and to see some of our dreams come to life, cultivating and sharing them together!
If nothing else, I would love to meet some single fathers to form friendships with that will involve lots of weekend hikes with the kids, or camping trips, or canoeing on Town Lake. I have plenty of mom friends (most of them married and busy with their own family), so my son and I need some nature-loving male energy to get us out more on the weekends!
I'm in a very busy stage with work for the rest of the year. I will probably not be able to respond to most messages. I will read all of them, though, and if I am blown away by how great "I think" we might be together, I will reply back. If I don't reply, my sincerest apologies, but it's likely because my gut says we won't fit well together, or I just have some doubts... and with how limited my time is for "see if there's a fit" dating, I end up ruling out a lot of profiles from the start for that reason alone.
