Over the last few years I’ve experienced a lot of loss and it’s taught me to take each moment as it comes. Life is too short to get caught up in the little things. I’ve alway been someone who charts my own course and found that traditional pathways don’t work for me. I fly by the seat of my pants most of the time and it works for me. It’s taken me to places I never dreamed and I found experiences I never imagined.
I am a city girl who longs for a plot of land to garden. Getting dirty is fun! On the other hand I love to get dressed up and be a girly girl. I’m comfortable in all types of social settings; dive bars to Michelin rated restaurants; stomping grapes to wine tastings; rodeos to galas. Life is to be enjoyed and I’m doing all that I can to enjoy each moment.
My chosen career requires me to be organized, demanding (in a nice way!) and in charge. The short of it is that I have teams of people that look to me to know what to do, how to do it and when to get it done. All done in a very creative non traditional environment. Corporate suit and tie workspaces are too stifling for me.
My priorities have made a huge shift and I've risen to the top of that list. That includes living a healthy lifestyle. I want a partner who supports and encourages this part of my life
My closest friends would say that I'm kind, caring, loving, loyal, compassionate, funny, outgoing and adventurous. I'm very easy going and find that I get along with just about everyone. I'll try anything once unless it has to do with heights. I hate heights.
I love the water and take ever opportunity to be on a boat or go to the beach or, better yet, go diving. SCUBA diving is the most peaceful thing I've ever experienced. I'd love to find someone who enjoyed it as much as I do. A partner who enjoys the same things I do is great but someone who pushes me out of my comfort zone is even better.
I want someone who compliments my life but has their own thing going on. If you are happy and comfortable with who you are and not concerned with what other people think about you all the better.
If you can't make decisions or want me to be the one to pick where we eat, what we do and how we do it all.the.time. we won't work. I like a strong hand so to speak.
I'm also looking for someone who allows me to be...goofy, sarcastic, serious, silly, curious, opinionated, adventurous and, well, me.
I will entertain at the drop of a hat and usually have friends over for impromptu dinners a few times a month.
For music I will listen to anything once and not much on repeat. I love going to listen to live music; Tom Petty to rjd2 and everything in between.
For food, well, I'll try anything once but gravitate to seafood. I cook all the time, read food blogs and try new recipes weekly. Lately I've been obsessed with finding vegetarian/vegan recipes. I eat mostly pescetarian but the bone marrow pizza at Coppa gets me every time.
A good bourbon
Netflix (don't watch much tv regularly but a nice rainy day is perfect for binge watching seasons. Orphan Black is my current binge)
Kisses and cuddles (they go together like PB&J)
