31 Mar 2013: I logged on today thinking I was going to totally re-vamp my profile, but you know what? Other than a comma here and there, or the rare typo, I'm leaving it as-is. This is me, and what I want. Take it or leave it :)
I'm a very diverse person. I enjoy reading, drawing and painting, genealogy, photography, cooking and baking, gardening, architecture, languages, travel, glass work, football, music, and a multitude of other things. When I get outdoors, I enjoy camping, fishing, hiking, boating, and nature in general. I love to play in the rain! I have a mostly off-again relationship with the gym, but in general I don't mind physical activity. I'm a very down to earth, honest, homey person. I firmly believe that when you stop learning, you stop growing as a person, so I love trying new things. Other things about me: I procrastinate, I have tattoos, I'm very loyal; some of my favorite places are Seattle, SF, Venice, and Paris. I'm a die-hard romantic with an unmitigated realistic streak.
I was born and raised in CA, lived there til I was 18, when I started moving around. I've lived in DC, SC (briefly), GA, OK, TX, WA, PA. I moved to Colorado Springs in Aug '09 to be closer to family. I moved to Littleton in May '12 to be closer to work.
I've traveled the world: the USSR while in high school; stationed in Korea for a year; France (Paris, and the La Rochelle area), Amsterdam, Venice, Austria (Wattens). I have a long list of other places in the world I would love to visit.
I am artistic, quirky, and feisty.
