Recently divorced. I have two beautiful girls who are the light of my world and they are my everything, but I can only talk so much toddler without my intellect regressing slightly, so now I'm looking for some more adult conversation. However, I am an extremely devoted mom. But that does not mean I don't have me time, as I work out 3-4 times per week, maintain a full time job and am going back to school to become an EMT / Paramedic.
I have created a successful career for myself in a position that I love. Having worked for the same company for the last 9 years, I have learned quite a bit into the Corporate structure and hope to continue to advance.
I escape through books and want someone who appreciates a good story. I have a good sense of humor and am known for creating words and having a somewhat sarcastic nature.
My favorite quote is "life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you deal with it". If you take life too seriously and follow the "woe is me" attitude then move on.... I need an ambitious innately happy person to keep up with me and my girls.
I have certainly lived an interesting life and have lived with a "no regrets" attitude. This attitude has caused me problems along the way, but has developed me into a strong, intelligent woman.
I have learned who I am and who I want... I want someone I can't wait to come home too. Someone who can give me butterflies every time they are near. Some one who is ambitious, spontaneous, funny, doesn't take things too seriously and knows how to laugh and MUST love kids. A romantic at heart, I'm looking for the same.
An idea of who I am... I have recently developed a strong love for kayaking... however, I don't let that consume me. I do try to find time to go whenever I have a spare moment. The perfect weekend for me just happened recently, and is one of the most fun I've had without my kids in a very long time... a long walk into new territory on a Thursday. Margarita night with my best friend on Friday (followed by beer pong - which I'm surprisingly good at - afterwards). Saturday morning was spent reading a book then followed with a tailgating party with my very closest friends / family to the Braves game (we didn't actually make it into the stadium until the 7th inning stretch). And Sunday morning / afternoon was spent on the river for an 11 mile kayak run.
However, here are things that would / will automatically result in your own demise, if you plan on sending me a message... any subject line beginning with the automated "hi" or the first sentence reading as 'Hi, how are you' or other variation of the same sentence, this will result in deletion of your message. I want to see that you've actually read and have acknowledged some portion of this profile, and have more inclination to begin a conversation with a little more observation / intelligence. Tell me something about yourself... that always helps.... :)
