Not sure how I found myself here. . . I think I got tired of the folks who talk a really good game, but when it came down to it, there was no action behind the words. . . I tend to lose respect for people when they don't "practice what they preach". . . Hey it's a saying for a reason. .
I have seen a lot and learned a lot in my short 30 years. I am grateful for all of it because it has brought me to where I stand today. I am pretty simple, never sweat the small stuff, and truly accept people for where they are at in their lives (as long as they are happy where they are at, I really have no tolerance for complainers) . I love the beach, it's my happy place. I feel that the outdoors is the best playground ever. Mountain climbing, rappeling, hiking, camping, white water rafting. . . all are faves for me. I love to travel, but would rather go to Costa Rica and play outside than sit on a cruise ship. . (Maybe I have energy issues) not sure, but I know that, chilling on the couch with a good movie is reserved for rainy days. . . or late night veggie fests. I have an amazing 6 year old son and I am truly so lucky to be his mom. . I am happily divorced, some things just don't work out. . From that I learned that relationships are a job, it can be the best job in the entire world, but it takes work, patience, discipline, understanding, and the willingness to change with someone. . . I would not say that I am anal about eating right and being physically active, but it is very important to me. I love to run. . . there is nothing better than going for a run with my dog and getting lost in the neighborhoods around my house. it forces you to stop and take a look around, breath it all in, rather than just passing it by. . . . I love nicknames (everyone gets one) , I love to laugh and find that I smile a lot, I say the silliest things at the most random of times. I love my job and I get to make a difference, I am humbled by where I am at in my career. I have the greatest friends (the three amigos) and an amazing family. I LOVE the RedSox and the Colts, I actually wish that I could watch football all the time?GO USF BULLS!. Is that enough about me??!
I am smart enough to say that I have no idea what my "ideal match" is. . . I thought I knew. I think some of the important characteristics would be strong and steadfast in who they are, a leader, family oriented, funny, confident, athletic, the capacity to enjoy my son not because he needs a dad (he's got a great one) but because he is an AWESOME kid. Someone who is cool enough to bring back to the friends ;) Someone that will go for a run with me and thinks that watching a sunset and sunrise in the same day is bad ass. . I think to sum it up. . . someone who just gets it. . . That fun is something that needs to be found, but anything else always finds itself. . That life is life, it's gonna happen, might as well buckle up and go for the ride..
