There are silver linings in every situation! I like to see the good in everything. I find that people will smile back at you if you smile at them first!! Smiles seem to brighten every ones day. My friends will say that I am kind, caring, have a heart of gold and love to laugh. They also say that I am much smarter than I give myself credit for. I think that the relationships you have with your family and friends (people in general) are what is important in life. Everything else is secondary. I love to cook and try new recipes (and I hear that I make dynamite challah). I enjoy the outdoors, movies, theater, music, fireplaces, watching the waves and breathtaking views. I think who you are with, is more important than what you are doing. I like to cry at happy endings and celebrate the successes. I have been know to stop to rescue lost dogs and find them new homes! Communication, passion and a sense of humor are essential to good partnership.
