I keep things light and can find the fun and the funny in almost everything. I love quick wit and banter though I don't think that mean is funny. Great quote: “Laughter is the closest distance between two people.” So, so true. The second closest distance? Comfortable silence? Yeah, maybe not the second.
My favorite philosophy is from Gandhi who I just learned had a killer sense of humor (if it’s on the internet, it has to be true). Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. I know the jury is still out on him, but I’m thinking Gandhi was a pretty smart guy.
My version of living has lots of different flavors. The short list includes being equal parts outdoorsy, musical, athletic, passionate traveler, and both big city and rural. Hiking, fishing, afternoons at Wrigley, festivals and farmers’ markets are on the list as are theatre, roadtrips, cooking, basketball and playing the guitar and piano. I won't mind if you can't carry a tune because I can't play very well. Really. I like both Pinot Noir and PBR and have a serious sweet tooth - and a french fry and cheese tooth too.
Paris, NY and Chicago have all been home. Arkansas, Oklahoma and Mississippi never will be. OKC is a nice place to visit but I'm hoping not to stay for too long.
I think the best couples are one another's biggest cheerleaders and, in my dad's words, the best relationships are 55%/55%.
