Here's a little bit about me... I'm intelligent, passionate, warm, loyal, communicative and playful. I can even talk backwards! I can see the humor in most situations. I 'm a fourth grade teacher and feel fortunate to get out of bed every morning looking forward to going to work. I've never met a dog I didn't want to hug. I LOVE going to the movies! Popcorn and peanut mm's are a must. I keep active by running, spinning, and doing yoga and I've even run a few marathons. I absolutely love traveling. Some of my favorite memories are riding an elephant in Thailand, snorkeling in the British Virgin Islands, and eating my way through Italy. One of my New Years resolutions is to cook more. Some of my best friends are people that I've known from high school and I love that we've been through thick and thin together. My parents have been married for over forty-five years and I admire the respect they have for each other. I'm a fun Aunt to my three year old niece and my one year old nephew. I consider myself to be a positive person with an open mind and an open heart. Here's what I'm looking for in you...you're affectionate and warm, you don't take yourself too seriously, you're emotionally available, you live your life with a healthy balance of work and play. I'm looking forward to meeting you!
