My dad always encouraged us to have adventures. He probably didn't mean for me to take 2 loaves of bread and set off in search of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow when I was 4 years old, but I did. I've been skydiving twice, served a mission, got a masters degree from Harvard, ran 3 half-marathons, and tried to grow a pineapple. I've coached volleyball and swimming. I ride a road bike and a motorcycle and would ride a horse if I could afford to own one. I enjoy traveling, but I'm not a very good tourist. I'd much rather be surprised by unexpected beauty than stick to a strict sight-seeing schedule. I love that teaching still gives me a summer vacation which allows me the freedom visit new places and old friends. Marriage and motherhood seem like pretty big adventures and I'm looking forward to them both.
I love reading and lending books, watching movies, quoting them and song lyrics endlessly. I'm low maintenance when it comes to technology and hair care. I'm adequate at playing the piano, but I love to sing harmony. I love learning and being exposed to new music, food, books or ideas, really anything that someone else is passionate about... as long as it's clean.
I'm committed to the gospel and am looking for a worthy priesthood holder who keeps his temple covenants. I appreciate the power of the Atonement to heal and I feel that personal experience with the Atonement is essential to any long-term relationship. Beyond that, the best gauge I have for compatibility is how I feel when I'm with another person.
