I am a writer and story spinner through and through. My love of literature and the written word is infinite and I couldn’t imagine my world without it. I think if I had to boil it down to my favorites then I would have to say classic literature, mostly European and traditional fairytales. There’s just something about the complexities that are entrenched, even in the simplest children’s tales. I’ve been working on my own writing and have had a few things published, but I feel like it’s just the beginning.
Another thing that I absolutely love is cooking. I could be in the kitchen working and testing new recipes all day long. There’s just something about the feel of fresh bread dough rising, the sound of carrots, onions, garlic and celery hitting a hot pan and the scent of a hot soup bubbling away on the stove top. I am also somewhat of a purist when it comes to food. I like to make my own things whenever possible. Bread, pasta, sauce, stock…etc. I’ve just begun learning how to can and make jams as well and I absolutely love it.
What I’m looking for in life is a partner. Someone who can be a best friend as well as a lover. I can be cuddly and affectionate some times, but other times I like to have peace and quiet by myself…even if it’s just to reflect upon the world for a moment. I do believe that things can be equal and that you do not “need” another person to be happy. I think that love begins within yourself, but it’s taken me a LONG time to get to that thought. I think loving yourself first is a foundation for a solid relationship and that’s what fires me right now.
