"The thing is, to have a life before we die. It can be a real adventure having a life." That’s a quote from "The World According to Garp" and I love everything about it. Sometimes it’s hard living up to that idea—remembering the adventure but I always keep trying and that’s the thing. I appreciate small kindnesses and thoughtful gestures more than flowers and chivalry (although those are nice too). I’m happiest when I’m learning or discovering and sharing. I value time with my family and friends but also cherish the peace of solitude (my dogs don’t count…they get to be around all the time). I’m an avid collector of culinary gadgets and sewing machineries. I take great care of myself while still enjoying indulgences like delicious foods, quirky cocktails and Austin events that make it so unique: live music, arts, festivals, great restaurants and funky East-side joints.
And now, I have talked more about myself than I usually do and am looking forward to hearing about you!
