This is the part that I've been dreading. . . how do I describe myself? I have come a long way baby! Five years ago, I was in an unhealthy marriage and now I'm happier than I ever thought possible. Being happy as a single, was something that didn'tseem possible. I went from being a full-time soccer mom of 4 very busy kids to a full time single parent. It's taken time to finally get to place where I feel I can prioritize a relationship, but I think I'm finally there. I have one child who is still at home and three that are in college. My life is relatively low key and I've begun to appreciate the little things that had previously gone unnoticed. I love standing outside in the middle of a snowstorm and trying to catch the snowflakes. I love playing in the rain and stomping in puddles. I can watch a moose or a bear in my yard for hours. A perfect date might be a mocha from Jitters and a drive to Hope and back. Don't get me wrong, I love dressing up and going out too. I love the symphony and going to the theater, but I've spent a lot of my life in that role, and I'm currently relishing in the simple things. My hope is that I will meet someone that can just enjoy the small things and not sweat the small stuff, and maybe enjoy a formal night out now and then. Public service and volunteer work is important to me.
