I am a book lover, enjoy the outdoors, animals, very calm personality, enjoy home decorating, baking (especially at holiday time), Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love Disneyland and traveling to the ocean/beach. I enjoy quiet evenings and movies. I love making my arts and crafts. I miss country dancing (2 step, 2step waltz, and line dancing)
My daughter (my joy) is 24, married and has a 2 yr old daughter and another one due in February and I just love being Nanna. They live in Tennesee and I miss them terribly. They are moving back as soon as her husband is done in the Army. I work in retail at one of the resorts here, but am working on getting my State Board Masage Therapy License back since I had moved out of town and let it lapse.
I had been away from the church for many years and have been trying to go to church on a regular basis recently when I can due to my work schedule. I do have a testimony of the gospel. My goal is to be married in the temple someday.
I'm fun, witty at times, laid back and people tell me I'm calming to be around. I've had my share of bad relationships and good and bad experiences in life. I was a hard working single mom during those years and don't wish single parenting upon anyone. I've always been the example to others even during those years of not attending church. I did have my daughter baptized at the age of 8 but she felt shunned at church by the girls her age because she felt it was her ethnic background (her father is half white and philipino) or because I was single (not sure), so we quit going and I was working on Sundays during that time.
Did I mention I love camping and just being in nature. I love quietness and don't mind spending time alone if that's the way it has to be. I love a nice ride on a Harley Davidson if I happen to know someone who rides. Thought of owning one of my own at a time. My parents ride often, they live in Washington State and I love my visits in the NW. They always find someone I can ride with, even my Dad! I love fast cars, I have a owned 3 so far. My 1992 red Camaro is down right now.
I do have a 12 1/2 year old Bengal cat and a I have a blonde Golden Lab, German Shepherd, Siberian Husky, Wolf mix, his name is Kenai. He is like having a child all over again. He's my buddy and is glued to me always, except I do make him sleep on the floor and NOT in my bed. lol just in case you were wondering.
One of my dreams is to open my own Gift Shop/Gallery filled with items I make and art from myself and people I know and with some other premade retail items, possibly candies and goodies, body scrubs that I make, and aromatherapy items. This town doesnt seem to fit what I make so not sure how this will all come about.
Another dream is to travel to France, Italy, and Greece...one day maybe
