I am also really passionate about a healthy lifestyle. I eat organic, no processed foods or artificial ingredients. I think a working body is an amazing thing and I prefer to spend time with those who value their health.
I am a hopeful romantic and adore people who are brave enough to be passionate and vulnerable. I spend my time with people who love hard and sing loudly and aren't afraid to put on their boots and muck around when things get messy. I am a "tough cookie" as they say, but I've learned that part of being tough is being open. Watch this to see one of my personal and career heroes talk about her research on vulnerability:
I'm trying to find a balance between growing and just having fun!
Practicing yoga. Riding bikes around the city at 3 am. Taking walks on the beach. Listening to records in the living room and dancing around in my underwear. Taking photographs. Reading and writing poetry. Re-potting plants. Museums!! Snuggling in bed while listening to thunderstorms. Talking to strangers. Sleeping in tents.

When I'm in a relationship, I spend a lot of time trying to make my partner feel special. I love being part of a "team". Your bad day is my bad day, one neck massage coming up! I'm seeking someone who feels similarly and wants to co-create in that endeavor. Doing those things for each other is really such a cool way to go through life!
How to walk the line between being open-minded and kind, and having strong opinions and a back bone.
I live for goosebumps.
I do crossword puzzles in the bathtub.
I'd like to travel the world someday.
I have Lyme Disease. Take it for what it is.
I have a very hard time staying mad at the people I love.
You can handle your shit and sometimes handle mine.
You want to look at stars with me on the roof.
You like to give and receive surprises, love notes on the mirror, late-night pancake making, nose rubbing, car-tripping, head-back laughing for two.
You hate to fight.
Problems arise, it's ok. Let's talk about it respectfully. And if things go poorly, we'll focus on the fun of making up, not on the sourness of conflict. Read the poem After The Argument by Stephen Dunn.
