My life did not turn out like most LDS girls. It has been quite an adventure with an abundance of rewarding and blessed experiences in my education (BA in German, MLIS), travels to and throughout Europe, employment as a public and academic librarian, and from all those who I have met along the way. I have also had my share of challenges, ultimately providing the means for an enriched life.
Talents vary. My cello comes out at Christmas. I usually have a few sewing/crocheting projects going simultaneously that end up in the hands of friends and family. I'm not really a movie watcher, nor do I own a TV--there's plenty to do and plenty to become without idling my time away. I would rather listen to Vivaldi or Chopin, fry pancakes, savor a book, develop the talents God has given me, or spend time with family. For recreation you'll find me on the dance floor (chaa chaa, samba, rumba, west & east coast swing) or at the local community art shows.
I love the outdoors (the mountains and nature), and I prefer eating simple organic home cooked food. My free Saturdays usually always involve my nieces and nephew (we enjoy painting rocks, looking at cacti, or jumping on the mini-trampolines) and when possible, service in the Temple. The Restored Gospel brings joy to my life, and I love learning new ideas.
I respect those who can wait in a long line patiently, who have made the effort to acquire their education, provide service to the elderly with a smile, and will compassionately reach out to children with disabilities. I'm interested in men who respect their Priesthood at all times even when not performing Church responsibilities. Please understand, I wish to find someone within 5 years of my age.
