The little girl in the picture is my cute little niece. I am a Kindergarten teacher, but have taken a couple of years off to help care for my elderly grandmother. I lived in Portland, Or for several years and really love the Northwest. I have said I would go anywhere for the right guy, but since I have been living in Utopia out in the country I am getting a little attached to this peaceful valley. (It's great living near family as well). I love music - playing piano, guitar, harmonizing and am especially interested in worship music. Praising and adoring God is the highest form music takes and I plan on doing it for eternity!! I enjoy sports, esp. Playing basketball, volleyball, biking, walking. . . I'm very interested in missions - have taken several short-term mission trips. I am fun and creative and a painter. I am easygoing and cheerful (and at times irritable);). I love lots of attention, and pretty much want to be treated right at all times! I enjoy much humor and have been involved in drama. I am loyal, great with kids, and have old-fashioned morals. I am intolerant of drinking, drugs, homosexuality, pornography, etc. I love all people, but am quite picky about the ones I date!
