I am: happy, curious, half Norwegian and half Irish if that means anything, secure, loyal, grateful, relatively intelligent, irreverent and much more.
I believe there is something to be learned from every situation. As with most of us, I have had my share of trials and tribulations and I am thankful for the experiences. Of course I would rather have learned it all the easy way, but that isn't always a choice.
I have a 26 year old daughter who has always been a source of joy. I am incredibly proud of the woman she has become. My goldendoodle Duffy is 92 pounds of goofy and thinks he's my kid too. He is a part of who I am, so you really do have to like dogs. My family, which may not always be related to me, is all important.
You should also love to travel, be willing to try new things, be honest to a fault, be happy and ready to laugh with gusto, and be willing to listen to me begin many sentences with "I was listening to NPR and...." .
