12. Must ❤ Food!

Leave a comment


No, seriously!  THIS is what I had for dinner last night. Now, I’m not gonna say we have to eat like this all the time – I am just as happy with cereal for supper – but there is something to be said for sharing a really great meal.  Tell me you like to eat and I’m yours for the night, tell me you can COOK and I’m yours for life!

11. Be Kind


Be Kind

Be Kind

There is evil in the world, no doubt about it.  The guy I am looking for believes kindness, compassion, and love are the answer.

“I want to be the kind of person that kind people like and want to be like.” ― Jarod Kintz

Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.”

― Henry James

9. Sharp Dressed Man

Sharp Dressed Man

ZZ Top said that every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man. Suits and ties are sexy as hell but I’m drawn to easy-going, t-shirt and jeans, work-with-his-hands, surf/skate, outdoorsy, little bit punk-rock type guys. Whatever that means. Appearance isn’t everything but it is important to me. I like it when my guy has a sense of style and takes pride in looking (and smelling) delicious.

8. Must Give Good Gift

Must give good gift

I believe that great gift-giving is a talent. I adore finding, wrapping and the anticipation of giving the absolute perfect gift whether it’s for holiday, birthday or just because. It’s all about an investment of time and thought. I mean, the whole purpose of a gift lies in love, right?  Or, at least, it should. Now, I’m not saying Mr. Right is gonna spend all his dinero buying me stuff – though that’s not necessarily a bad thing, haha – but I do dig a man who really gets into the joy of giving.  No matter who the recipient is, it’s just waaaaaay more fun to give than to receive.

7. The Soul Of An Artist

The Soul Of an Artist

The Soul of an Artist

I often use the following quote from Alfred Eisenstaedt to describe my own love of photography.

When I have a camera in my hand, I know no fear.

My guy is not necessarily a painter, poet or performer per se, but he most definitely has the soul – and if I’m very lucky, the hands – of an artist.

6. Steal My Heart Away

Baby's Got The Blues

Baby’s Got The Blues

Before You Accuse Me of being a complete ass, take note that my Papa was a Rolling Stone and my Mama was an Alley Cat. I grew up on Steve Miller Band dance parties and Van Morrisson lullabies. My personal soundtrack on Pandora makes me very, very happy but it’s ok if it’s not quite your thing. Having said that, I believe it’ll be a brown eyed handsome man who can play me those sweet, sweet Blues that’s gonna steal my heart away.



Clapton – Before You Accuse Me

The Temptations –  Papa Was A Rolling Stone

Snooky Pryor – How’d You Learn To Shake It Like That

Steve Miller Band – Jet Airliner

Van Morrisson – Crazy Love

Rolling Stones – Happy

Dirty Heads – Believe

Nina Simone – Brown Eyed Handsome Man

Bonnie Raitt & John Lee Hooker – I’m In The Mood For Love

Van Morrisson – Steal My Heart Away

Lucky Dube – Julie!Julie!


5. Must Love Beer!

Must love beer

Must love beer

I’m not gonna lie. I loooooooooove me a cold beer on a sunshine-y day! Actually, I love beer on just about any day.  I also love wine club at The Cellar and neighborhood dive bars. Martinis with the girls and Moscow Mules at Dublin 4. Bloody Marys at the Pier on Saturday mornings are so spiritual they get a whole sentence to themselves.  It’s not like I’m a huge drinker or anything – I’m actually quite a cheap date – but I do like to indulge.  My Mr. Right appreciates himself some moonshine but knows when it’s time to go home.


4. Mad, Passionate, Extraordinary Love

I <3 You More

I ❤ U More

“Unless it’s mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life; Love shouldn’t be one of them.”

‘Nuff said.

3. The Little Things

There is Beauty in the littlest things.

There is Beauty in the littlest things.

I work in healthcare to pay the bills but I am a photographer by choice and passion. It is deep within my DNA to observe, appreciate and capture the beauty in the delicious little details of life.  Spilled paint on a sidewalk, the soft furry weeds growing along the sand, graffiti along the highway, brushstrokes, color combinations, patterns, texture, light. These things totally turn me on.

Breaking Bad, Bob Marley, Mexican food, cold beer. The trash taken out, the floor swept, the wet towels hung up. Yeah, yeah, whatever. But these things also totally turn me on. Recognizing my eccentricities says you know me.  Acting on them says…um, well…see, it’s the little things that matter.

Did I just come home to a tidy house and you in jeans and a “Better Call Saul” t-shirt, humming “Three Little Birds”, holding Ceviche in one hand and a six-pack of Modelo Especial in the other?  Damn, Baby. You are the one!
