My self-summary
This is ME in a nutshell...
I'm a free-spirit-hippie-chick-bohemian-type. I'm educated, smart, witty, caring, kind, honest to a fault, hilarious, creative, vegetarian, Eco-friendly, and passionate.

I love all animals and I especially love dogs. I have 3 dogs of my own, so you must love dogs.

I'm a jeans, t-shirt, and sneakers/sandals/barefoot kind of girl. I'm very low-maintenance. I rarely wear make-up, I do not own a dress/skirt, or high heels. I like to look nice, but it doesn't take me 4 hours to get ready to go to the grocery store.

A few random things I like are as follows: Farmers markets, flea markets, antique stores, photography, art, nature, gardening, animals, dogs (especially rescue dogs), thunderstorms, guacamole, Mexican food, heirloom tomatoes, patchouli oil, Grey Goose Vodka, Converse sneakers(or Chuck Taylors as I still and will always call them) guys with long hair, artsy guys with glasses and tattoos, and guys that smile just because (smiling's my favorite)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working in a professional job that pays great, has tons of boring paper/computer work, and allows me absolutely no creative outlets...
I’m really good at
Designing jewelry. I've had a side biz for 8 years where I design & sell my jewelry. It's a great therapeutic outlet for me because it's so different from my day job. I've been selling my jewelry at the NewBo City Market in CR for 3 yrs and I love it! It's so much fun mingling with the public, other vendors, and meeting people who appreciate your art and want to buy it!
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and my hair, if it's down.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The following things are some of my favorite things. These are not things that define who I am. They are just things that make my life more enjoyable...

Some of my favorite movies are High Fidelity, Office Space, Clerks, and Pulp Fiction.

This is just a small sample of my favorites bands/artists: The Dead, Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Ray Lamontagne, Beck, Cake, G. Love, any project Jack White touches, Jane's Addiction, DMB, Pearl Jam/Eddie Vedder, Classical music (Brahms, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, etc.), 80's music, Funk, etc. I love music! I'm not crazy about rap unless its The Beasties, and NO country unless it's Johnny Cash.

My favorite TV shows are Law & Order and all of its "spin-offs", That 70's Show, and Portlandia.
The six things I could never do without
My family/friends, dogs/animals, music, art, love, sunshine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Living on a small hobby farm (someday with a significant other) and working for myself. Being a vegetarian, I would love to grow as much of my own food as possible.
But most of all, I think about how great it would be to find a guy who will love me for me, flaws and all. I need someone who "gets me" and wants to grow old with me...
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually at home chilling with my dogs, doing something artistic.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm looking for a long-term relationship. Not casual sex and not a string of sex-capades. Sorry if that's too heavy for you...
You should message me if
You actually give a shit about meeting a real person, who treats others more than fairly, who is open-minded, and who is definitely ready to get off of the dating site merry-go-around.

I want someone who's not materialistic, loves animals and nature, appreciates the simple things in life, enjoys cooking together, loves music, someone who is true to themselves, has a great sense of humor, someone who is a lover of the arts, and someone who is creative.
I'm starting to think this is too tall of an order... :(

*VERY IMPORTANT-Please do not contact me if you are a hunter.

**Please do not contact me of you're married or have a gf.

***Please do not contact me if you have any issues with the gay community, as I am extremely "pro-gay." I believe gay marriage should be legal and I hope one day it will just be referred to as marriage.
