Seduce my mind and you can have my body. Find my soul and I’m yours forever. –M.D. Waters

I’m a highly self-aware, deeply introspective tree hugger who’s gotta sick, twisted, wicked sense of humor. A whiskey swilling, burger loving epicurean with hyperbolic tendencies. A nerd with a bit of a freak flag. A good girl who behaves badly. A smart ass.

I’m a spiritual being, yet I believe in science as equally as I believe there’s a force that is greater than we could ever imagine. I tend to live in my head. Hiking is my preferred method of meditation.

Everyday, I strive to be a better human than I was the day before, and try to do something for the benefit of others, in big ways and small. I believe you get what you give. I’m all about paying it forward and creating good Karma.

I savor the small moments and find joy in simple pleasures. A glass of wine and porch time with my best friend. A wagging tail. A cloudless sky. The view from atop Mullholland Drive. I value friendship, loyalty, integrity and the stuff money can’t buy.

In the end, though, I think the only thing that really matters is love.
