My self-summary
Smart and sassy with a serious wit--be ready to volley. I am a mixture of glamour and grassroots. I can reside at a fancy restaurant or be just as comfortable at a place with good eats. Make no mistake that I love a well-cooked meal along with delicious wine. I am playful, fun, spontaneous, love hiking and I am always up for a trip to the hot springs. I relish the poetry in life; it's about the moments we take pause to notice. I am inspired by nature and the innocence of children. I love getting lost in the woods, lost in a book, lost in a city, or lost in thought.
