Who is She?

She knows how to cook. Well. She has supplies on hand to make great meals, desserts and snacks. The cabinets and pantry display tons of options for fantastic foods. She's prepared. And she doesn't need a recipe.

She's clean, while not being maticulous. (Perhaps she hires someone to do the actual cleaning) Her home looks lived in, but put away at the same time. It's cozy and comfortable and perfect for entertaining.

She loves her job and her career is bright and shiny. She can be creative and think way outside the box.

She's in wonderful shape. The gym is not so much a chore as it is part of the daily routine. And not because there's an event to be svelte for, but because it's good for your body and soul.

She remembers birthdays in enough time to mail a well thought gift with Martha Stewart worthy wrapping alongside the perfect card.

She's crafty in the kitchen, the office and the bedroom.

She values friendships and remembers that phone calls are the perfect way to keep in touch with old friends. She realizes that just because someone was important in the past, doesn't mean they can't also be important in the future.

She takes advantage of the city she's living in. She tries new resturants instead of falling back on the tried and true because the Cuban Sandwich is so.damn.good. She goes to new places. Tries new things. She spends Sundays driving to a new area of the city to just, drive.

She goes on more vacations, because, seriously, if you don't do it now, you're not going to be able to do it for a long time. She sees new places, but makes it home at some point throughout the year for some slow Southern time.

She has a hobby that she loves. And maybe, she's really good at it.

She shops more often. She loves fashion and should spend more time learning about it. Then putting that knowledge to pracitcal use. She accessorizes.

She has a husband that she adores and adores her back. They choose everyday to be more in love than they were a day before. They grow together. Some people call this "work", but for them, it's nothing of the sort. They remember the way they felt on their honeymoon and strive for that everyday.

She relies a bit more on other people. She doesn't have to do it all on her own. But in the technical arena, she takes on more for herself. She knows how to handle it when the car makes a noise or the computer screen goes black.

She is open to criticism. Realizing that she is a work in progress and that we all need all the help we can get.

She's put together.

She knows what she wants.

She's solid.
