I come accross as friendly, light-hearted and cheerful. I get along easily with most people. On the inside, I am a person of strong will and deep passions. I love great music and art. As Bethoven put it, “music should strike fire from the heart of man." (Ok, he sad something different about women, but I let it slide.) Same goes for books, movies, or plays. Otherwise, it's not worth watching, reading, or listening to. I love having engaging conversations about "hot button" topics. Please don't bring up the weather with me, unless it's an earthquake! I know a few amazing and quick go to recepies, but I also like to experiment with ingridients and flavors. Anything I put on my plate is tasty and healthy. I am very active. I love biking, swimming and running. I am also a recent fan of cross-fitness training. I am an avid traveler, and prefer to spend a lot of time outdoors. It is unlikely to find me any day of the week in a stinky dingy bar... It is more likely to get a hold of me at a local coffee shop (think Peet's), at a farmers' market (I love to buy fresh) or at the swimming pool. I walk A LOT. And hike. I enjoy life, and I want nothing but the best. And I usually get it. I am also very warm and cuddly. I love to hug. I love kids. I am a great mom. I like to build solid friendships and serious relationships. I can't stand superficial people.
