Respect, appreciation, affection , manners and communication are of the utmost importance. Most of my friends have been in my life for about 20 years. No matter how much time goes by, we can easily pick up exactly where we left off. I believe it has to do with a mutual respect.
I am a girly girl, but not a princess in any way. You will eventually notice that I am in a dress or skirt 95% of the time- even when hiking. I love to dance, and cook and surround myself with beauty.
