However, I am a loving, old fashioned, Christian, southern gal that's usually smiling and enjoying life. I love the country and pride myself on being a country girl that can navigate life in the big city.
I've traveled near and far and have lived many dreams, specifically living abroad in Japan and Canada for 3 years.
I am by no means ordinary and I've had a very extraordinary life!!! I've hiked some of the biggest mountains and conquered challenges and defeats. I am a true romantic at heart and spend a lot of time mending relationships and broken spirits on a regular as a career.
I'm proudly old-fashioned in some ways, be it as I can be a little stubborn or resistant to things like online dating, posting pics of myself .... I prefer a good old in person, face to face interaction. I am full of songs, laughter and story and listening ears. I'm an old soul.
I one day look forward to being married to an extraordinary gentleman. Building a friendship could be the best start. I have dog a 16 month old girl, she keeps me full of reckless energy and adventure.
* This short profile cannot begin to describe and define the contours and depth of my life, world and dreams and perhaps your interest would be peaked in some little detail* to get to know me and learn more if/when time is right.
I'm enjoying taking my life a bit out of the fast lane and finding an appropriate pace for everything that makes me happy and reflective. I've dedicated this year to getting reconnected with my guitar, my friends, family, road tripping, camping, and the many DIY projects that I enjoy. I like to be silly and don't mind getting my hands dirty...hence I will be building an outdoor garden, and a cute little dog house for my puppy amongst other things this summer.
I constantly read and love planning trips and adventures. Me and the road are soul friends, and I itch to explore. I recently went to the Bahamas in May with my family.
I love to be of service. I love people and life. I have always considered adopting a child (if that's in God's plans) in my future and think all children deserve and must have important parents and active leaders/ role models in their lives.

Of course music from the 80's, Classic R &B, Soul! 80's Pop Rock, Gospel are in my bones!

At times, I require extensive periods of time alone. It's how Iam able to rejoin the world so full of life and energy.
I don't believe in wasting your time and having time wasted. I am a woman with a huge heart, a smile that tells so many stories of loss and blessings. I know life's light and the shadows either from my own or from those of the clients I serve...and through it all, I live for all the beauty and gifts of opportunities presented to me.
* Christian, marriage guided, respecting man with a big heart* are most welcomed!...AND if you can accept a picture of me after an initial introduction and genuine conversation then, do say hello and a bit more.
