I'm an easy person to get along with, spontaneous, honest, kind-hearted, with a great sense of humor. I have fun no matter who I'm with, family or friends. I was born in Brazil so I speak Portuguese. I enjoy staying busy. Don't watch much TV, prefer to read a good book instead. Like being active though I've slowed down a bit. Trying to eat better and exercise more when I can. Need someone to ride bikes with, walk, etc. I don't even mind going to the gym. Have never golfed but would love to learn.
I've always liked adventure…I owned a jet ski, camped in Yellowstone, flew to Paris for a weekend, stranded in Acapulco (will explain), went scuba diving in Acapulco (though I had a panic attack under water I can at least say I tried!), snorkeled in Hawaii, slept overnight on a beach in California, hiked Table Rock in Idaho, canoeing in Minnesota, rafting in Wisconsin, hiked Grand Canyon, helped fly a plane in Arizona, I like to try new things and see new places. Life is too short. I'm addicted to genealogy. In my spare time you'll find me at the Family History Center looking through film or at the temple which is 1-2 times a month. My church calling is a Family History Consultant (which I love).
Being a single parent the last 10 years has stopped me from doing the things I love but I wouldn't trade it for the world. My daughter is now telling me - "Mom I want you to have a boyfriend". Huge step for both of us since she was very attached to me. Ready to rebuild my life with the right person. Love children young or old, at home or married. Will treat them like my own. I'm more of a listener than a talker. Would prefer to ask you questions than talk about myself. I've been told I'm shy and maybe I am in the beginning but I open up once I get to know you. May consider relocating since I'm tired of Chicago winters. To be discussed :)
You will be someone that loves the gospel. Goes to the temple or will go because temple marriage is important to me. Enjoys family life and busy schedules that go along with it. Weekend road trips. Traveling. Likes to cook. Clean. Organized. Holding hands. Snuggling. Enjoys seeing and trying new things as well as staying home and watching a good movie.
