My self-summary
I am an independent woman, a curious mind, and an athlete at heart.

I'm in relationships with Coastermonger and Noigel_NE, and am looking for people who are excited by the idea of adventuring with me. I'd love to meet some gentlemen and ladies who enjoy a group dynamic, whether that's board games and banter or something even livelier. I'm also up for one-on-one, for hikes and great food and all that Austin can present to surprise us.

Tea, good company, my family, great food, and beauty all warrant my time and energy, because they make me smile. The intersection of beauty and utility is one of the cornerstones of my aesthetic philosophy. Being there for people is an ideal I strive for in love and friendship.

I am exuberant, spontaneous, and I show my real feelings. I love to learn and push myself, and I enjoy giving others a hand when they need it.
What I’m doing with my life
Just moved to south Austin at the end of February and am settling in. I just finished working for a luxury hotel in the Virgin Islands, where I got to make sure my clients had an amazing, memorable sojourn in paradise.

I love to be active, and am looking forward to rock climbing and time on the water.

I'm celebrating a year and a half of marriage to the amazing Coastermonger and a year with my boyfriend Noigel_NE, so life is full and happy, but with room always for wonderful new connections.
I’m really good at
Encouragement, making tea, cooking, finding objects of beauty and enjoying them, learning, fixing problems (but not always seeing them.)

Organizing. Details.

Throwing dinner parties, dressing up, reading, traveling, touch.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am tall. I have a great smile. I am exuberant.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books! I love reading. Generally. Even textbooks to some extent. Some favorite books from over the years that I still think about and which make up part of my mind furniture: The Good Earth, 1984, Brave New World, Wuthering Heights, Ender's Game, Harry Potter, works by various French playwrights (Corneille, Molière, etc.), the list could go on but I'll stop there for now.

Movies: again, these are movies I still think about from time to time. (I rarely re-watch movies, so that is not much of a gauge.) Tea with Mussolini, Minority Report, The Princess Bride, Disney's Robin Hood, City of God. I'll have to think more about this category.

Music: I am not a music geek, but I enjoy upbeat and/or uptempo music OR songs with a story or a very intense feeling (read Tracy Chapman or Stevie Nicks.) I also love music that's silly while still being high-quality (read: Here Come the Mummies- if I'd known you could do that with improv, I would have stayed in Jazz.)

This could be my entire profile, almost, as food is such a great metaphor. I love food that is healthy, delicious, beautiful, and lovingly crafted. I like my food to highlight its primary ingredients. Let me taste the calamari, the lemon, the red cabbage even. I rarely turn down new and strange food anymore, or even food I have not enjoyed in the past. In the right hands, who knows what might happen? Maybe magic, or a new experience at the very least. And I'll keep learning, either way. So yes, I have favorite foods, but more than that I love to discover new favorites, new versions, and even sometimes the things that don't work.
The six things I could never do without
Adoring touch
Really great food
Unconditional love to get me through and teach me to be a better me
The ocean, a pool, or at least a swimmin' hole (I am part mermaid, I think; water is my true medium)
My best friends
A challenge
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to get better at what I love to do.

What I need/want to accomplish tomorrow.

Being active/planning my next large expenditure of productive energy.

Being close to/spending time with my friends and loved ones.

On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays are often work-nights for me, but on a day off, I love to head to a greenspace, cook a meal at home, or have friends over for a game night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wear my heart on my sleeve.
You should message me if
ESPECIALLY IF: You are a physically active guy who gets excited by the idea of being involved with a woman who has two great, stable partners. If group dates make you happy. If your poly family is looking for game, friendly new members. If you're a curvy, heteroflexible girl who likes the idea of me and one of my tall, loving partners.

BUT ALSO IF: You have an idea for a crazy, involved adventure. You like dressing up. You care about great food. You've met me before. You want to know more about me. You know a great chef and would love to personally introduce me.
