A little about me...
As I sit before the screen with fingers poised over the keys, my mind flies to three things my parents instilled in me while I was young.
1) HOME is where you make it (not to be defined by structural design).
2) NEVER have a "What if ...".
3) You can accomplish ANYTHING you want.
Little did I know how I would incorporate these very words of encouragement and support into my daily life!
From premature babies to centenarians, much of my nursing career has encompassed the intensive care area ... a gentle reminder of just how precious and short life is. I loved my work in the hospital; but now, since 2006, I am using my nursing/medical skills on- board cruise ships that take me to all seven continents. Such a lucky lady am I!
I feel I am kind, happy and secure. I appreciate traditional values and can go from blue jeans to a cocktail dress in the blink of an eye. Rather than "a favorite" I have many favorites of music, cuisine, literature, sports (spectator only), animals, country sides, cities and so much more!
About the one I'm looking for...
There are so many attributes I find desirable in a gentleman. Strength of character, a playfulness laced with a delicious wit and a man who is willing to think "outside" the box, to name a few! Albeit simple, an adventuresome spirit to embrace people, cultures and geographical wonders around the world is a must ... along with enjoying the water, whether it be on it ~ in it ~ under it.
I'd just like to add...
One facet that is so important to me in a relationship is an excellent balance of His time, Her time and Our time.
Are you a wagering man? As to my curly hair ~ natural or not? (I may be the only woman you meet who doesn't own a hair dryer.)
Every day I strive for a healthy balance with the people in my life ~ my family means the world to me and I simply adore my friends. I also take time for myself. (Not so easy to remember!)
*** Please know how MUCH I appreciate a Gentleman's effort to write a personal message to me ... I will not respond to "flirts" or a "standardized reply"***
