I love my Chacos and all things Italian. I do science on the side.
I've determined that the only way to reconcile my inconsonant love of (West coast) mountains and (East coast) greenery and fall foliage is to move to Switzerland. Which suits me just fine, as "adventure" might just be my middle name.
I bake my own bread and hate ingredients in my food that I can't pronounce, unless said ingredients are in another language (see above). I dream of a yard big enough for my kids to play baseball and a garden that would make my grandmother proud.
I can hold my own in the intellectual arena and enjoy thoughtful discussion, but as a rule I don't take myself too seriously. I much prefer laughter to mental sparring.
I find the following traits extremely attractive in a guy:
- reads for fun
- willingly helps with dishes
- plays with children
- pays his tithing
- diligently does his home teaching
- attends the temple as often as distance permits
- carries my tent on backpacking trips (kidding ... sort of)
Disclaimer: I can be hard to reach here ... but the intrepid heart might find that I'm not terribly difficult to locate elsewhere.
