My life did not turn out like most LDS girls. It has been quite an adventure, though. I have had some of the most rewarding experiences in my travels and in my education, but I have also experienced a lot of challenges.
I grew up in beautiful rural Northern California in an artistically and musically inclined 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, moved home to work at a college library, and now I am in transition between positions.
A little about me and my activities: I love to read, cook, go to the Temple, visit my nieces, sing, dance (ballroom, tap, and ballet), sew, spend time with my mother and other adopted parents, and serve others. I volunteer for my local public library and in my community. I love eating healthily, and I mainly eat organic. I'm not tuned into pop culture nor the latest movie. I prefer to keep myself busy and educate my mind.
Church is a big part of my life. I have a strong testimony of the Restored Gospel, and I wish to find someone likewise. I wish to find someone who is understanding, empathetic, within five years of my age, who has talents and uses them, someone who prefers wholesome recreation and does not need to watch tv, willing to be of service even outside of work, who has completed a college degree, and who can take me to the Temple.
I am alright with having to travel to find and date Mr. Right just as long as he meets me half way.
