I'm out-going, down to earth and ready to meet someone who I can have a lot of fun with. I'm looking for someone who is kind and genuine, funny, yet responsible, and who is looking to find a partner to share their life with. If you're looking for the same thing I'd love to hear from you!
I'm usually pretty laid back and up for whatever! I enjoy a night out to a nice restaurant, hitting up a bar for some dancing or a fun night out with the girls, but also am just as happy putting on sweats, making dinner, and having a movie night-in at home. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I grew up in Des Moines so my immediate family is still around, and they are very important to me. Being an aunt to my niece of one of my favorite jobs, never can get enough of her! I also love getting together with friends for a happy hour on a patio somewhere when it's nice out or going over to someone's house for dinner and game night...we can get kind of competitive! ;-)
During the summers I enjoy getting out and playing some golf, I used to play several times a week but don't have the time for that anymore unfortunately, but still get in 9 or 18 when I can. I also love going to farmer's markets on Saturday mornings. There's definitely certain spots I always have to hit (breakfast pizza at Fong's or the burrito line, local fresh fruits & veggie stands, and the cupcakes from Carefree Patisserie and whatever else looks interesting to me that day! Over the past year or so I've gotten back into reading on a regular basis and now really enjoy reading for awhile before going to bed to clear my head from the day. I am also actively involved in Variety the Children's Charity and find this very rewarding, a like for kids is a must!
I've been fortunate so far in my career that I have been able to travel all over the world; some of my favorites are Italy, Australia, Hawaii and Brazil. I love expericing new cultures and seeing new places! The next countries on my to-visit list are Ireland, Germany or South Africa. I also love traveling in the states however and try and get to Chicago once a summer to catch a Cubs game. I also like the Scottsdale area and would love to get to San Fransisco or the Napa/Sonoma area sometime soon. I love trying new wines, so wine-tasting in Napa would be a great trip!
