I like to smile and I love to laugh :) Laughter (and/or a good run!) can make almost any day 10 times better! Giving a smile to someone, or receiving one, is also an invaluable gesture, in my opinion. If you know of any good/silly jokes to pass on... bonus points ;)
Family is also a top priority for me. I love spending time with my own, especially my nieces and nephews. Currently working on achieving "favorite aunt status". :)
I am definitely an optimistic person and feel like I am smack in the middle of being an extrovert/introvert. I love to talk and meet new people, but I also enjoy some quiet time with those close to me as well. Finally, a desire to learn, as well as being an involved member of the community, are important to me and something I would hope to find in a significant other.
Most days of the week you will find me working as a high school counselor. As someone who has always loved to help others, meet new people, and leave a positive impact on the lives of others, I think my job is pretty ideal! I also learn so much from my students. It's definitely a win-win situation.
On any given day you're also likely to find me in the swimming pool or on a run, searching online for a new recipe to try, doing something related to church or my family, or catching highlights from sporting events. However, I enjoy doing these activities even more when I have a cute guy to do them with :) Cheering for the same team isn't a deal-breaker either. I can appreciate friendly competition!
Oh - can't forget to mention that I love trying new restaurants. I'm fairly new to SLC so I am currently on a quest to find the best Mexican food around. Any suggestions?!
What am I looking for in someone to date? Someone who's nice to everyone, knows that actions speak louder than words, and is interested in more than just sitting on the couch every day :) I'm looking forward to chatting with you!
