I'm a plucky, spunky mom of 4 with a gypsy soul. Ever balancing my appreciation for a safe life in suburbia with a mad penchant to dance in the moonlight, travel around the world with a camera in tow, and eat fresh-grown food daily.
Raised as a good, Mormon girl, life got all funkylicious for me two years back when I realized I didn't actually believe a good deal of the doctrine anymore. Leaving the church, learning to navigate the world as a "non-set-apart, non-religious" real-live human being, and now kicking it as a divorced mom of four happens to make for some pretty intense mid-life-ish adventure. I'm glad for it everyday. This isn't at all where I expected myself to be at this point in my life, but, gosh dang if life isn't beautiful and surprising and so worth the crazy.
I'm a laid back, naturally optimistic, no-nonsense girl with confidence, internal drive, cute skinny jeans, and an ability to live in the moment. My life is rich with incredibly wise, thoughtful children whom I adore raising, a deep base of truly remarkable friends, and a kickass career as a recipe developer, writer, and cooking show host for several companies who's stuff you prolly buy in the store from time to time.
Food (and especially good, healthy food) and nutrition are a vital part of the way I experience the world. But, I'll also take a good long walk, an afternoon run on the green earth, a spontaneous road trip, or afternoon party with favorite people as the finest of daily pleasures.
I hate playing games, adore honesty and true intimacy, and believe in the power of abundance. Though I like pretending that relaxing in front of a movie is the ultimate way to spend a Friday night, I never actually want to watch anything at all if there's people to talk to, kids to entertain, or a party to cook for.
Looking for sane, rational, unmoody gents who know who they are, live what they believe, and seek everyday to suck the freaking marrow out of life.
