I am a hopeless romantic and a little old fashioned. I sometimes wish I had been born 150 yrs ago until I think of life without washing machines, dishwashers, cars, medicines we have now. I liked the simplicity of life, honesty, trust, knowing and caring for neighbors, working as a community, a slower pace, family values, safety. I grew up in a small town and my best friend had family that lived on farms. I very much grew up in a laid back country lifestyle. I have enjoyed the diversity and opportunities that being in a larger city for the last 30 years has given me, but miss at times the close nit community and laid back nature that my hometown gave me.
I love music and the arts. I play a little piano and sing I love crafts, old movies and musicals the mountains and nature. I love kids and have had 6 children. My kids ages are16 almost 17 – 31, one at home. I am a grandmother of four and have one more on the way ...all girls so far! Family is everything to me. I am a reserved person but love to have fun and socialize with good people. I love to go camping and find the mountains to be the most relaxing place I can be, second only to going to the temple. I love watching good movies to relax. Did I mention…I love the mountains, going on picnics, and camping? I like to explore new places and see nature. Prefer driving to flying because there is so much to see and stop and do driving as there is so much beauty and variety on the earth. Don’t get me wrong if I need to get from point A to B in a short period of time or am by myself I’d love to fly. But if I have time….well.
I have learned to be quite resourceful over the years. My Daddy taught me all my life that if I wanted something done bad enough I could figure out how to do it. Because of this I have learned many skills I thought I'd never do. It also bothers me to pay someone else to do something if I can figure out how to do it myself and only pay for the supplies. I love spending time doing just about anything if I can be with friends and people I love. My family brings me joy and makes me laugh and smile. Music was always a part of my life and my children as well. They used to fall asleep to me playing piano or singing to them. My kids have all been in band and I love going to concerts, watching marching band competitions and hearing them sing and play. I love it when we (rarely now) get to do music together. I was able to be a stay at home mom for 29 years and loved every minute. I now work for the public schools in the admin dept. I love my coworkers and being at school with my son for his last leg of youth. Not sure if he appreciates it as well as I do. Hehe…
I have been a lifetime member of the church. I have always had a strong testimony of the gospel and have always been active. I have lost and given up much for what I believe which has made me stronger. I am hoping to someday find someone who is trustworthy and loyal, honors the priesthood and attends the temple often, one who loves kids and enjoys spending time with them. I want a best friend as an eternal companion, someone who will share in all aspects of life and grow old or Young with me. Life is too short to miss moments!
