I am a single mom enjoying life. I have a great sense of humor and
am known for my smile & laugh. Even though I'm now over 50
(Ugh!), I am very young at heart. *Just so you know, I don't get
hung up on my age...it's just a number ~ it doesn't define who I
am. I enjoy adventures, site seeing, traveling, spending time with
family, being with friends, and trying new things (within limits).
I believe in the philosophy of helping others (pay-it-forward).
I've been to Ecuador, Africa, and Honduras helping build schools
with my daughter, and my kids and I have helped at the local soup
kitchens. I just returned in May 2013 from another (2 week) trip to
Honduras this time visiting an orphanage. Luv'd it and hope to
Since I'm now in my "50's", one thing that I have realized is that
bouncing back (the body) sometimes takes a little more time. So
with that in mind, it has curved my dare devilness a bit where now
I take a bit more precaution. I still have my "Bucket List", but
now my items tend to be closer to the ground. I'm proud to say that
I didn't receive my first broken bone until I was 50 (my wrist).
Hope to NEVER experience that again!
My dream/goal someday is to backpack thru Europe with my kids. Too
many beautiful, historical places there!
What I’m doing with my life
I work full time which keeps me busy and out of trouble (well, most
of the time) and enjoying my time being a mom to my two children
(ages 16 & 23). I enjoy my crafts when I have time and have
become addicted to Pinterest. So many projects that I'd like to
do...so little time! I'm a bit adventurous and when able, I like to
seek out new places to check out.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at....
