I like spending time with family and friends. My family is very close. We are all very supportive of each other and spend lots of time together.
I enjoy being outdoors swimming and camping and hiking. I am usually a really laid back person, but I can be very determined and as my family says stubborn, when I feel strongly about something. I love music! (listening and especially singing). Music has always been a big part of my life. No matter how alone I felt or how sad I was, music has always been a way for me to relax and to express myself. I love photography. Whenever our family gets together I am known to have a camera or video camera in my hand or as least nearby. I also love to travel, not that I have a lot of opportunity. I hope to someday go to Italy. I also thought that it would be so much fun to go on a temple hopping road trip, to take a couple of weeks and plan a route to follow attending as many different temples as possible along the way. I love attending the temple. I am not much into searching my genealogy. Fortunately my dad has that area covered, but I love learning about my families past generations and going to the temple for them and doing their work.
I am a very touchy/feely kind of person. Anyone that I marry would need to be comfortable with giving and receiving lots of hugs, kisses and other simple touches throughout the day. Maybe it's because I come from a close knit family or because I spend so much time with little children, but there it is.
I have been a preschool teacher for about 12 years now. At church I have had almost every calling that I could have at least once. At the moment I lead the music in Relief Society.
