First and foremost I am a positive person and blessed with good genes, good health, and good friends. My sense of style is a bit eclectic. I can dress up or dress down depending on the occasion, but either way, most of my clothes come from 2nd hand stores. I believe in making good use of what others have discarded, and doing what I can to save the environment. I also like the challenge of looking great without spending a lot of money. It's great to receive a compliment on something I bought for 3 dollars! Some things I love are dancing, listening to music (usually live), cooking, entertaining friends, hiking, gardening, running, and much more. I participated in a lot of sports earlier in my life, and have run 5 marathons since 2000. The last thing I purchased for a friend was a box of note cards with four different remarkable drawings of horses. My friend has horses and loved the cards.
