I'm also a optimist. Sometimes I have to fight hard to keep this outlook, but this attitude has served me well so I'm holding on.
I'm a loyal friend and my friends are akin to my family. I am always available to them; for comfort, hugs, or chocolate. I am a transplant from South Carolina, and though my accent has faded, my hospitality and smiles still shine. :)
I've experienced much beauty in the world, whether I was teaching English and blond jokes in Guadalajara, gazing over green rice fields in Kerala, India, singing to opulent red poppies on the Camino de Santiago, or decoding the full white moon hanging over the Yellowstone River. In short, I love travel, and I always see something beautiful when I do.
Also, I like to have fun! I can be a little crass, and sometimes a little edgy. I really enjoy making others laugh and sometimes laugh at myself. I'm easy-going and always open and ready to live inside whatever moment awaits me.
