I'm optimistic, open-minded, positive, happy, and outgoing. I like to entertain and hang with friends, but I love spending time in new and inspiring places, even (or especially) when off the beaten path.
I'd rather love and lose than not love at all; as that, above all, makes it interesting!
In November, my daughter woke up in a world where the president elect thinks It's ok for men to "grab her by the pussy". If this doesn't disgust you, I don't want to know you.
I have two kids - both in college. Needless to say they are a big part of my life, but we’re also moving into a new phase of inter-independence.
And dreaming. Dreaming of a partner: of someone who can marvel with me at the beauty of the world and all that is in it. Someone who's eyes can capture a sunrise and reflect it back, brightened. Someone who leans in to the challenge of an adventure. Someone who can inspire the best in me.
