The gospel has definitely become the center of my life. It is my peace & keeps me focused on what really matters, which is my family, loving & serving others. I'll be honest, it has taken me a few hard lessons and years to get here, but I've always known that it was possible and that I would. I feel very blessed!
My three kiddos are the best thing I've done in my life! My son returned from serving his mission a year ago. He has very recently been married and sealed to his childhood sweetheart! It was one of the happiest days of my life. I love my new daughter as if she were my own. I also have two beautiful teenage daughters, 15 and 19 years old, who keep me young and love to tease me. They are the cool girls I've always wanted to be!
I asked my kiddos to list words that best describe me and here is what they came up with:
Independent, faithful, genuine, grateful, positive, hard-working, nice, loud, passionate, bold, simplistic, assertive, truthful, compassionate, empathetic, straightforward, quirky & crafty! (They often tell me I'm beautiful, but I love that it wasn't on the list.)
I love laughing, so a sense of humor is awesome! I don't feel "old" and I don't believe that I ever will. I'm attracted to people of the same "young" mindset. I'm a no-drama kind of girl. I was raised to never say mean things in the heat of the moment that can't be taken back. I don't hold grudges & I'm forgiving, for my own heart's sake.
I love trees, mountains and Utah skies! I love camping, but haven't been in years. I'm very talkative and make a lot of faces. I'm not at all athletic, but I'll play for fun. I started juicing over a year ago and I feel better than ever...I love it! I do still love to eat :) My kiddos and I love Comic Con and we each have some geek in us :) We love Marvel, Star Wars, DC Comics, LOTR, etc, but my favorite kind of movie is definitely action movies...especially those with car chases!!!
Although my career as a business manager requires quite a bit of daily structure and planning, I'm a bit less structured within my home life. I'm an ADD girl and if you're OCD, I might drive you crazy...just sayin'. I feel that home should be a haven for every member of the family. We don't always have to have plans. Sometimes the quiet nights at home are the best nights!
I am so looking forward to finding the right someone to spend my life and forever with!
