I have a wonderful appreciation for the great outdoors. I grew up skiing, hiking, biking, kayaking, rafting, and camping. I am not great at any particular sport, but enjoy doing most things outside. I am looking for someone who wants to explore all that this beautiful area has to offer with me.
I also love to travel and see new places. I have seen most of this country and have done some international traveling (although not near as much as I would like to). I love the history of Europe, the natural beauty of the red rocks of Utah, and the smell of the ocean.
I also enjoy some quiet relaxation time. I like reading, going to the theater, hanging out with friends, wine tasting, and much more. I love learning new things and enjoy challenging myself. I also really enjoying cooking. I have recently started trying a lot of new recipes and making more gourmet food.
A good match would be someone who wants to live a healthy lifestyle, shares some of the same interests as me, and has his own interests that he wants to show me. Oh, and I have two cats, so you must like cats.
I am also always looking at how I can give back more. One of the ways I decided to do that was I became a foster parent. I have a beautiful 2 1/2 year old foster daughter living with me. She has been with me for just over two years now and I am really loving being a parent.
I am always trying to find ways to enjoy the great outdoors. In the summer I love to hike, camp, etc.
Making as small a footprint on the world as I can is also a big goal of mine. I try really hard to be very conscious of my lifestyle including what I eat, what I buy, what I throw away, etc. I pay attention to politics and the state of the world.
I also love to have fun. I enjoy wine tasting, eating out with friends, going to the theater, going on road trips, camping, cooking, etc. and try to spend as much of my time as I can engaged in enjoyable activities.
I am a good cook. I have taken a bunch of cooking classes and done lots of experimenting. I have some very good recipes including a beer braised short ribs and a roasted butternut squash soup.
I am a good friend. I enjoy keeping close relationships, even with people I don't see regularly.
Don't laugh, but my favorite TV show is Glee. I also enjoy watching the food network and cooking channel. It is fun to see new recipes I want to try. I rarely miss The Daily Show or The Rachel Maddow Show.
I have many favorite foods, but I love Moroccan. I am willing to try a wide variety of foods, although seafood is actually not my favorite.
I have eclectic tastes in music although some of my favorites are the oldies like Johnny Cash, the Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, etc. Yes I realize that makes me not cool, but oh well.
I also spend a lot of time thinking about my foster daughter, what she needs, and how to make sure she gets nothing but the best that I can give.
