I relocated from NY to UT for my job. I am an enigmatic contradiction in that I am intelligent yet tender and affectionate. I am well-educated yet goofy. I am vivacious yet introspective. I am independent yet cherish connection. I am deeply religious yet sensual. Can you figure me out yet? ;-) I am also inquisitive, spontaneous and authentic.
I'm refined and enjoy finer things in life. But I also like my old jeans, running around barefoot on soft grass and goofing around with my daughter coating my teeth with masticated Oreos. ;-)
I love to laugh and I am happy with life. I try to live my life to the fullest each day, trying to be a better person tomorrow than I am today. The legacy I want to leave to humanity is not the size of my paycheck or the height of my title but that I give more to the world than I take from it. I want to make it a better place everywhere I go.
Being kind and non-judgmental/ non-sarcastic is very important to me - I believe you need to be a nice person to make it to heaven.
I am a deep thinker. I am an ardent student of psychology - I enjoy experiencing the Eureka! moments when psychology and the Gospel principles intersect. I enjoy cultivating a few deep relationships over many shallow ones.
I take pride in being a good mom. Raising my daughter righteously and teaching her the correct principles is very important to me. She is the apple of my eye.
I have an eclectic taste in music - I love Sarah Brightman, George Winston, Erasure, Enrique Igliasis, Shania Twain, Outfield, Beethoven and many others, although I don't care much for rap. I play the piano (no Chopin yet but enough to make any place feel like a home). I am learning to play a piece from George Winston’s December – can’t wait to do justice to this beautiful music. I am a season subscriber to Utah Symphony / Utah Opera.
I love Thomas Kinkade and Greg Olsen paintings (I have a scant collection of one of each so far). I love dancing to Erasure and Enrique Igliasis (it’s therapeutic and even cathartic!). I love sushi (I can make some delectable California rolls myself), and NPR (not so much the liberal secularism they tend to throw at us sometimes but as a source of intelligent news and analyses). I enjoy sailing - not an accomplished sailor by any means, but enough to know it's hard work.
I want to create a conscious relationship based on empathy, constant growth and fierce loyalty. I want to be where the distinct boundaries that define us as separate individuals become transparent through communication, which is the magical moment when our connection transcends our five senses.
Do you have a fierce testimony of the Gospel? Are you someone who is not intimidated by smart women and can hold your own? Do you see that strong, independent women are still girls inside who want to be protected by your strong arms? Are you passionate, energetic and affectionate? Do you have high energy and intensity to go after what you want with all your passion? Are you aware of your feelings and can you communicate them? Are you connected with your inner self and aware of the world around you? Are you intelligent? Are you kind-hearted? Are you honest? Do you cherish the deep sense of connection that comes from communication? Can you feel and love deeply? Do you appreciate that listening takes a "heroic selfless effort to understand the other person"? Thank you for being you - I would love to get to know you.
