I consider myself a very fortunate person. I have two daughters (10 and 8) who amaze me everyday, work that I love, a family I adore (although they are back East), and wonderful friends. In terms of describing my personality -- I would say that I am intelligent, optimistic, independent, caring and have a dry sense of humor. Live music, camping (tent only) and hiking are passions. Jon Stewart never fails to crack me up. I can lose track of time sitting on top of a mountain or wandering happily around Home Depot.
