I'm experiencing true independence for the first time in my life, and I'm loving every minute of it. Life really is a journey and I'm ready to make the most of it. I've been through a lot of challenges in my life, but I can honestly say I've never been in a better place. I love the Lord, and I'm confident that my future is bright. I have so much to be thankful for. I love to laugh and enjoy a great glass of wine. I cherish lasting friendships and would do anything for the people closest to me. I'm a single mom to a beautiful and happy seven year old daughter. She is my monkey and my world. If that is a deal breaker, than it's your loss. I am a NICU nurse which means I take care of babies, mostly premature ones, and I honestly feel like I have the toughest yet most rewarding job in the world. I love people in general, and I get the biggest kick out of people watching. I love to read and would love to travel the world someday. I love to have deep, meaningful conversations and love to sit down with elderly people to gain just a little bit of insight and wisdom from them. I love to hear about others life experiences, triumphs and tragedies and what they have learned from them. I believe in learning from your mistakes and failures and not repeating them. I have an appreciation for literally every type of music from country to classical to old southern rock. I drink starbucks or dunkin donuts coffee every day...it really is an obsession..I love the FL weather and the beach but can also appreciate a cold rainy day if I have the luxury to be indoors. I love volleyball and the FL Gators..I love to play poker and I'm pretty good at it...looking for someone who shares my values to enjoy life with.
