I am an optimistic person (with a healthy dose of realism!) who loves animals and the outdoors. I am always looking for something different to try, either a new vacation spot, restaurant, type of music or other activity. I enjoy alot of variety and like to keep busy. I also enjoy my time at home reading a good mystery...especially if it's cold and rainy outside. I have traveled extensively and while there are still places I want to see, recently I have been going on more day trips or long weekends...more relaxing and less hassle! I have a great sense of humor and don't see the point of getting upset about too many things...just roll with the punches.
