Life is an adventure! I try not to take life too seriously and see humor in all types of situations. You only live once and I feel like you should absorb everything you can from every situation. Smell the roses, dance in the rain, appreciate what you've been given and be grateful for what you've been spared. Hit your knees every day. We live in this great big beautiful world and it's just a sin not to see it. I am by no means a perfect person but I'm constantly trying to better myself and be a good friend to those around me. I like who I am and I know myself pretty well. I certainly have life goals and a vision for the future but I don't want to miss the ride getting there!
I'm a southern princess, no doubt, but I also have no problem getting a little dirt under my nails and hanging with the boys. As much as I love fine and fancy, I really am laid back. From hiking to camping to fishing and 4-wheeling, pretty much, if it involves the outdoors I'm in. I moved to Austin from Dallas a little more than a year ago. I love Austin and am enjoying settling down in my new town! I'm very involved in volunteering and an advocate of participating in the community. Going to the grocery store is one of my favorite things to do and I love cooking for my family and friends. I love love love to read. I like running in 5k and 10k races, it keeps me motivated. In the next couple of years I'll do a half marathon also. I also like to drop in to various yoga or dance classes around town and love that Austin has so many options. I have yet to travel anywhere really exotic but it's certainly a goal of mine. I like who I am and I know myself pretty well. I know what I want out of a relationship and out of my life, and I'm not afraid to keep moving and searching and striving until I achieve it. I'm highly motivated to be and have it all; career, family, health, good life, happiness. I'm just finding my way like everyone else, and I can only hope I'm doing it in a way that brings kindness and positively impacts those I come into contact with. I believe in strong morals and values and I look for the same in others. I don't know where I will end up but I'm definitely enjoying the ride that life is taking me on and I know that no matter what, everything happens for a reason!
I'm interested in finding a genuinely good guy who isn't just looking for a hook up. I really don't like games and don't put up with a lot of "the run around" before I'm out. I'm not going to beat around the bush- it's my goal to be in a monogamous relationship- note that I didn't say monotonous nor did I hear the tinkling of wedding bells. But I am looking for something more than just casual. Beyond being romantic partners, I am looking for a friend to go through life with- in times of laughter and times of grief. It's also important to me to date a man who has a healthy relationship with the Lord; you don't have to be a saint or anything, God knows I'm not, but I believe that foundation is extremely valuable in a relationship.
