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, my travels to and throughout Europe, in my employment as both a public and academic librarian, and from all those who I have met along the way. I have also experienced challenges, ultimately providing the means for an enriched life.
Talents vary. My cello comes out at Christmas. I usually have a few sewing projects going that will end up in the hands of friends and family. I'm not really a movie watcher, nor do I own a TV, nor do I honestly want one. I would rather listen to Vivaldi or Chopin, fry pancakes, savor a book, or participate in a service project. My favorite recreation is ballroom dancing (chaa chaa, samba, rumba, west & east coast swing), and I have fun meandering through community art fairs with co-workers.
I love the outdoors and prefer eating organic. Living now in an apartment doesn't quite provide me with the former luxury of digging my hands into dirt, planting kale, or dehydrating freshly picked grapes, but the farmer and his roadside stand down the road makes up for it.
My free Saturdays usually always involve my nieces and nephew (we’ve just recently discovered painting rocks) and, when possible, service in the Temple. The Restored Gospel brings joy to my life, and I wish to befriend those who likewise commit themselves to the Lord and their families.
I respect men who can wait in a long line patiently, who have made the effort to acquire their college degrees, 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.
