I'm a born and raised "Jersey Girl," without a love for fist pumping, big hair, and Bon Jovi. My family is on the smaller side, as I'm an only child. I have a great relationship wtih my parents and extended family, and hope to have a family of my own someday. In the meantime, I'm surrounded by "my kids" 5 days a week, as my true love and passion is teaching (2nd grade)!
For fun, you can find me sipping wine or coffee on my front porch, with a great book in hand. Or maybe, you'll see me zipping through the streets of town on my bike or walking with my ipod playing those oldies but goodies. I also love cooking, but it's much more fun cooking for/with someone, than it is for a "party of one." Italian food and seafood are definitely the way to this girl's heart! My latest obsession is DIY projects. I'm a dog lover, hard worker, and believer in what comes around goes around (in a good way).
Still enjoy going out, but definitely am past the bar scenes and staying out until the "last call" lights go on! I can have just as much fun sitiing home with a movie as I can getting dressed up for a night out. I"m not a girly girl in the sense of being scared of getting dirty. I'm a determined person and don't have a problem with taking a few tries at something, until I get what I want and deserve. I consider myself a happy, upbeat person, so I need someone who makes me laugh, and laughs along with me.
I'm at a point where I'm ready for something more long term and significant, but realize you have to crawl before you walk!
