At 35 it is time to start looking. It is a little awkward being single and living in a family ward with no single men my age.
My life did not turn out like most LDS girls. But so far life has been quite an adventure, and someday it will be my turn.
I grew up in beautiful rural Northern California in an artistically inclined all girl family. As a teenager I spent a year in Germany, then attended BYU in Provo, spent more time in Europe, acquired my BA in German, acquired my MLIS degree through San Jose State, worked for Fresno County as a public librarian, and then moved home. I am now a college librarian. I am a caring individual. I work more hours than I am allotted to place on my time sheet. When I get the chance I drive to Reno on Friday evenings and dance at a Ballroom dance club along with visit the Temple. I take vocal lessons and enjoy the symphony. When time allows (especially around Christmas time) I sew and make crafts for others as gifts. And yes, I still keep in contact with my German and Hungarian families. I have a deep love for the scriptures and cherish family scripture reading. Because of allergies and the fact that whatever one eats makes cells, I eat mainly organic. I have a strong testimony of the Restored Gospel and strive to be close to my Savior.
I'm not tuned into pop culture, t.v., or the latest movie--nor do I want to be. The only time I will really sit down and watch the "BYU Channel" is when I am taking time to bond with my mother. It is more important for me is to use my time to increase learning, develop my talents, and visit with my various adopted parents.
Like everyone I have my short-comings, but I know and have witnessed that when I put the Lord first, He helps and guides me through life's ups and downs. I wish to find someone who is understanding, within five years of my age, who has talents and uses them, and who can take me to the Temple.
