When I am off work I tend to watch Netflix or stay in and relax from work. When the weather is nice, I like to go on walks, hiking, or doing some camping. I have been kayaking in the Ozarks a couple of times and want to go back again for that. I like good food and craft beer. I enjoy cooking, especially with someone else. I used to make pies with my grandmother, so I always make pies from scratch. I have also dabbled in some home brewing. Thus far I have only tried brewing with extracts, but would like to get the materials to do all-grain brewing.
I also love to travel! I have been to seven countries. The most recent travel I have done though has been inside the US. I went to Portland a few years ago and Boston this summer. Both were excellent trips!
I am a fairly laid back/easy going individual, but often step up and take leadership or will take control of a chaotic situation. I have also found I really enjoy teaching and mentoring.
I believe chivalry is not dead. I am polite and hold doors for others, always say "please" and "thank you," and am comfortable holding someone's purse when needed. I am also a bit of a romantic and like to cuddle.
(I found this quote and thought it was really good...)
"You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She's not perfect - you aren't either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you... every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don't hurt her, don't change her, don't analyze and don't expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she's not there." - Bob Marley
