The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my style of sentimental photography, my family and children, my best friends, and encouraging love and romance - whether through my photography or in my own life. ...And I am greatly passionate about making others feel loved. It would be fair to say that most everyone dating at this age has loved ones and children. I couldn't imagine dating someone for a long period without also falling in love with their children... that's what we all want in this. I am passionate about the big picture, and not dividing up "his" and "hers". We have all experienced heartbreak. I am passionate about going forward and showing love.
I typically spend my leisure time
My idea of a perfect day: hunting in my favorite deer stand at dawn snuggled up with the love of my life, a cup of coffee with whip cream on top, four-wheeling with the kids, playing a round of golf, ending the day with a glass of wine, friends and romance. ... That's a great day on steroids!... Leisure? Suburban moms don't have much leisure time, but I don't make excuses for what "little time" I have. I make time for those I love... and those I love definitely feel my love and committment - without worry of my dedication. I can make a fun day out of anything... I love to snuggle and live each moment with someone as if it is the last.
The most influential person in my life has been
-affection, warmth, honesty, loyalty, adventure, humor, youthfulness,passion, depth of character, committed to Jesus Christ, involved in Church. If a father, a man who can handle balancing the fine line between loving his own children and introducing them to others who could potentially care a great deal for them, and for their father. ;O) I have a big heart - and even though I have children who I love like crazy - I do feel very likely that God will lead me to someone who also has children for me to love. Children who have had no choice in divorce and death -should be embraced, and at the same time encourage their parent's personal happiness
The first thing people notice about me
The way I can love on my children deeply as all moms should ... and at the same time have this amazing ability to not act like "Mommy" all the time. I am affectionate and loving - and not just with my kids - with my friends and relationships. Most notice my photography as it is a huge reflection of my character and the endearing moments that I love to chronicle for my clients.
The last book I read and enjoyed
If it doesn't rhyme, I'm just not that into it :o) Children's books - and any "books" and love letters my children write to me. :o)
The three things which I am most thankful for
- -my beautiful children.
- -my best friends and family.
- -my big heart.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am often thought of as being younger than I really am, which is great. :o) I feel 18 inside when it comes to love and all that it brings.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Romantic, Thoughtful, Warm
A little more about me
This way of meeting people seems so wrong to me... and not my style at all. I don't like the process of seeking out - yet, besides photographing weddings, I am not around many singles at this age. My best friends, who know my heart, encouraged me because I may just meet someone with a genuine interest in my heart before physical attraction takes over. I love a good time ... and at the same time, depth of character is so important to me. I am a lover, not a fighter. Everyday, I think about pulling my profile as I don't wish to 'play' with my life... but if my words encourage others, then this is not in vain. That is good enough for me.
