Are you ready?

For real!

I am so ready...

To live life fully, laugh with and love a man who is ready for anything!

Creative, silly, nurturing, proud hip mama of two spectacular little kids. After devoting the past 7 years of my life to them, I believe the time is now to find the right man to share the best things in life: family, love and laughter.

I plan for eternity, yet live in the moment. I know how to celebrate the little things as these moments are fleeting. Learning, growing and doing something new every day are the things that keep me going (and keep me grounded). My down-time is usually with my eyes wide open.

I am very passionate about the arts and strive to keep it going in the hearts of my children. Music is essential and makes the soul sing. I've discovered how to just let go and dance. My daughter has been in ballet/tap/jazz classes since she was 3 (she's 7 now) and loves to perform! I could really use some help teaching my very energetic and rough-and-tumble 5 yr-old son how to throw and hit a ball. I've got him enrolled in a t-ball class where he's finally broken the habit of throwing the ball with the glove. Hilarious!

History and culture fascinate me. I am a very sentimental and nostalgic person. I have surrounded myself with souvenirs of my life's experiences, and have made my home a warm and inviting refuge. A place for everything, and everything in it's place - wish! My family is deep-rooted in tradition, and I am honored to be the holiday hostess!

I would love to cozy up to a man who is a character (funny, smart, witty, upbeat and charming) as well as having character (stable, strong and sincere). A man who is secure with himself and his friendships. A man who shares many of the same ideals as me. A true family man, and a guy's guy. A man who is not consumed by material things or drowning in self-doubt and debt. My ideal man must have lots of energy to keep up, and big strong arms to hold it all together.

I'm not on here to date just anyone. My wish is to fill a void that has been in my life for quite some time. When the right man comes along, it will be overflowing.
