I've worked my way into a really good place in life...I have a beautiful house in wine country, financial security, but success and possessions mean nothing with out someone to share them with.
I'm very active and athletic. I love to watch and or play all sports. l enjoy all types of outdoor activities including being the woods and on the water. I grew up in the snow, and really miss snowboarding and skiing. I go to the gym 5-7 days a week, but would rather be biking, hiking or almost anything else. Just has been a convenient routine I've gotten into. Being fit and healthy is a big priority in my life, and I love doing it.
I love to have fun. My Wisconsin roots helped me appreciate the charm of a dive bar. I've had some of the best times in the crappiest places! Now I really appreciate the wine country lifestyle too. I like getting dressed up and going to nice restaurants, eating good food and drinking great wine. But one of the best nights would be staying home and cooking a meal together and snuggling up on the couch for a movie. I have a gourmet kitchen that is rarely used.
I have been lucky to be surrounded by good friends and a loving family, but I've had challenges too. I lost both of my parents far too young. In result I have learned life lessons-like life is short and I don't take things for granted. I've decide what's important to me and I live my life a certain way as result:
I believe the only thing you can control in your life is you and your actions.
I'm good at identifying and letting go of the little things in life that just don't matter.
There are many different roads to take in life and I choose the high road and let karma work out any repercussions for others.
The man that will have my heart is kind, considerate, generous with his love, affectionate, but most importantly, we can take turns laughing with and at each other. Laughter is the biggest aphrodisiac, and I don't think you can ever laugh too much. So if you think you can make me laugh you should really send me an email.
Let's face it, the computer profile thing is really unnatural. Sales people or professional writers must have a huge advantage, because I have no idea how to truly represent my multi-faceted, 3 dimensional person in this 2 dimensional space. Let's meet for a drink, laugh, and have some fun. Because, even if two profiles "Match" up perfectly on the computer and she has some really cute pictures, none of it matters unless the two of you have that certain je ne sais quoi!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
In general, I have this overwhelming feeling to live life to it's fullest. I don't want to miss out on anything. So my ideal dates would be trying something new or going on an adventure. But I don't expect that to happen all the time. I have a gourmet kitchen that is being neglected, so an evening of cooking together, drinking wine, roasting marshmallows outside, then jumping in the hot tub under the stars at my house would make a great night.
