My self-summary
Portland by way of Boston by way of Portland, ME. I guess this is operation Portland 2.0. I've been here for about a year and I feel like I still haven't seen as much as I should.

I am an eternal optimist and I believe that everything happens for a reason. I think that means I believe in good timing. I always have a smile on my face and way too much energy for my own good.

If I had to describe myself in one word, it would be "bold", thats a nicer way of saying I think I'm sassy, classy and a little kick-assy!

I've been single long enough to know who I am, and I love myself. I'm proud to say that I'm a strong woman. I know my boundaries and practice plenty of self care. I'm a problem solver, nurturing and compassionate. I like being part of someone's support system. I believe that a smile, a listening ear and some kind words go farther than expected.

I've taken 30 by storm with a fitness adventure. This lady has a personal trainer, a nutritionist, and lots of time being sore. I mean, I looked great before, but I want to look great AND feel great. Therefore, an active partner is a necessity. I'm not just in the gym, I love playing outside too. I'm definitely in better shape than I am in my photos, but my friends and I tend to keep our phones tucked away on adventures. Its a habit I need to get out of!

I can be ambitious to a fault, although that's just my Maine roots talking. I want a beautiful life and I know that takes work. My friends are my chosen family, although it takes a while to get there, I love deeply and fiercely. That must be my Maine roots too! Haha

I'll try anything twice and I can talk to just about anyone. Slow is not a pace I am used to but I'm learning to take the time to enjoy life rather than run through it. I want to have a love affair with life, you should too.

A recent conversation with one of my friends, he said "Jenn, you're a gem. You need to meet someone who is as fun as you. Or you can do what Gram says, 'I had to meet a guy who was just as fun as me, and I am fun. Who wants to spend 60 years with a dud?'"

If you'e picking up what I'm putting down, I hope to hear from you!

What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to be the best version of myself I can be.

I work in advertising. I tell people how to make things. I'm a project manager.

I have a little side hustle of being a private chef too. My biscuits and gravy have warranted a few faux marriage proposals. The way to anyone's heart is through their stomach. ;)

I'm also laughing way too much, feeding everyone I know, dancing like a fool wherever I go and spending as much time with my dog as possible.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at having a great time.

For me, that comes in the form of telling stories, getting lost, multi-tasking, living room dance parties with the dog, talking to strangers, ordering dessert, being inappropriate, making sauce and making people laugh.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, I've got red hair and curves for days. Im hard to miss in a crowd.

Other than that, Im running circles around people, making friends wherever I go and I talk to myself a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
When I think of my favorite things, its always a sensory experience. The sound of a champagne cork popping, the smell of rain hitting asphalt on a hot summer night, soft grass under my feet and the sun on my face. Autumn is right around the corner, Im looking forward to the way it smells like dry leaves, dirt and sunshine. Its my favorite time of year.

I like my music live and something I can dance to. I also like the oldies and goodies from Motown to deep Zeppelin cuts. I've got a sweet spot for jam bands and sing-a-longs in the car with the windows down.

Brunch is my favorite meal of the week, its all about ordering or making way too much food, having a few too many drinks, laughing for hours and taking a great nap in the afternoon. Oysters and bubbles is an ideal night out. Snuggles, popcorn and a good movie is my idea of a great night in.

I love the smell of a campfire, and the way my hair smells the next day.

Books. Where do I start? I adore a great story. We can talk about that later.
The six things I could never do without
My Dog and a lint roller. I love him, but that dog sure does shed.
Sauce. I love sauce.
Laughter; a giggle or a belly laugh that starts to hurt after a while.
A great pillow
A sharp knife and a cast iron pan

Technically, that's more than 6. I like to live on the edge.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I should make for cookie Friday. Ask me about it, you'll want in.
On a typical Friday night I am
Exploring. I think that covers the bases.

Or entertaining. There is always and emergency bottle of bubbles in the fridge and a pound of safety bacon in the freezer. Priorities.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm terrible at cartwheels.
You should message me if
Message me if you're playing for keeps. I'm at a point in my life where I am looking for a meaningful relationship with the right person.

Now that's out of the way, you should message me if you want to go out for a drink, a snack, or if you have some sweet dance moves.

I have a sweet spot for great smiles, a sharp tongue, and rugged makers. I like my men the same way I like my paper towels; brawny. It might be weird if you're absorbent, but we can cross that bridge later. For real, if you make something with your hands and you're built like an ox, I swoon. If you're tall, clean up well and love long camping trips, we'll get along famously.

This is also SUPER long. If you made it this far, you deserve a long distance high five.

If you take the time to write me a message, I will do my best to respond, thats only fair right? Although I apologize in advance if it takes me a little while. I'm a busy lady!
