Hi, my name is Mercedes! Yes, like the car. No, I don’t drive one. If they made an E-Class sedan with a stick shift, I’d consider forking out the cash. One of my favorite things to do is laugh—like really laugh. When I get going hard enough I can’t speak and just end up crying. It’s almost like a party trick.
A few things I like:
*reading—favorite alone go to activity. I’ve spent entire days reading before…
*making things—cooking, crafting, sewing, party planning, décor, etc. with varying degrees of success…bloggers always make things look deceptively simple.
yle="font-weight:bold;")*sweets—chocolate is the best, but I'm not picky.
*travel—love Europe, favorites include Scotland, Paris, Amsterdam
*honesty--say it how you mean it, kindly, of course. Straight up raw if it must be. But I want to know what you really think.
*photography--when I say photography I really mean lugging my big camera around feeling faintly self conscious because I don't actually know what I'm doing. I just click the shutter enough times to usually come up with something good.
Fewer things I don’t like:
*licorice—I think It’s a rare exception to the above like of sweets
*lack of passion—if there’s nothing that really excites a person, nothing that they feel strongly about, I’d rather not. Because there are a lot of things I feel strongly about
There are more in both categories, but there must be some mystery…
If you prefer the non-trivial approach, I have a great appreciation for the important roles my ight:bold;")family, friends, and faith play in my life. I am both honest and real, and hand them both out without apology. I am looking for someone who can be the same back to me. I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, and came back two years ago after an 8 year stint in the beautiful and frigid, Minnesota. I’d like to broaden my social horizons at this point, get out there and see what happens. I’d love to get to know you!
