My favorite movie scene *ever* is found in Catch Me if you Can, where the mom and dad are washing dishes together, swaying to the music, completely engrossed in each other. I want a guy whose presence makes the mundane magnificent!
So, just got divorced after a lot of years, but I'm not discouraged! I'm a hopeless romantic, confidant that one day there'll be someone kind and happy to share my days with. For now I occupy my time raising the some wonderful kids, working a great job part-time as a massage therapist in a chiropractor's office, camping, kayaking, cycling, lifting, and playing. Life is good!
I have six children, two of whom still live at home with me, ages 9 and 11.
Being a mother has brought unspeakable joy. I love children, especially teaching tem. I'm currently serving in the church in my dream job, teacher of the Valiant 9 class.
The man I'm looking for will be strong, both in masculinity and the gospel. I'm not worried about anyone's past mistakes; it's where you are now, and which direction you are going that matters. I prefer someone who is touchy-feely & affectionate, sometimes silly and playful when appropriate, but always responsible and serious when necessary. I'd love to attend the temple every week if possible, and ultimately serve a mission or three with my guy. My favorite virtues are kindness, gratitude, humble, hard-working, intelligent, loyal, and possessing a great sense of humor. I'm looking for a guy who loves kids WAY more than he loves electronics because, although I LOVE the occasional evening spent snuggling through a movie on the couch, most of the time I prefer the unplugged life. People and relationships matter most.
In exchange, I'll make my man the center of my existence; I will cherish him for the rest of his life, in every possible way.
I don't do drama or hasty relationships. I love my Savior, He sustains me joyfully through all things. I love every minute of every day, and have no regrets, and don't ever intend to.
*Disclaimer* I am a little bit (well, maybe a lot) corny, I love puns and word games, and am often tempted to chuck this whole grown-up gig. Yeah, I s'pose I never grew up, and it's too late now.
