Hey there! I'm Melissa. I enjoy flying kites in the spring, gardening in the summer, bike rides in the fall, and board games all year round. I'm a bit of a bookworm and a news junkie.
I've lived in Russia and the Netherlands and Belgium and Utah and I've come to love learning about other countries and cultures. I'm a wannabe polyglot and I hope to travel more in the future. I think Montreal is going to be my next destination. In the meantime, I'm an avid armchair world explorer. Where would you go first?
Someday I want to learn French. And Photoshop. And how to make my own clothes. And a million other things. Lucky for me, I have a GREAT job that gives me the opportunity to learn just about anything I want.
The gospel has always been an important part of how I live my life and of my plans for the future. I was blessed with goodly parents and they and now my siblings are great examples of the kind of family life I hope to have someday: hardworking, faithful, strong in the gospel and the Church, and FUN! I dream of being a mom someday, whether because I have my own kids or get to be a second mom to someone else's, or some combination of the two.
I don't really have "a List" of what I'm looking for in a spouse, but I know these things are important to me when I think of my future family: being active as individuals and as a family in filling church callings and church attendance, having daily scripture study and prayer. I really value kindness and a strong sense of fun and humor. So if that sounds like you, send me a message!
