I'm a Yankee transplant who has called NC home for 6 years and I love it here. Raleigh has so much to offer. I miss my family of course, but I love the mild winters, pleasant autumns and springs, and yes, even the oppressive summers. I'm a 2nd grade teacher at a school I love, but it does require huge amounts of my time and energy. My job used to define me, something I have sought to balance out this year.
I enjoy spending my time outside. When I'm not at Zumba class or jogging (currently attempting my first Couch to 5k) you can find me hiking at Umstead, Johnson Lake, or Durant. I also enjoy perusing the farmer's market, Art Museum, and the various little festivals downtown on the weekends.
I'm seeking someone who is genuine, caring, compassionate, and honest. If your primary motivation in life is to make more money we probably will not see eye-to-eye. Bars and nightclubs aren't really my thing. I love evenings in, cooking a nice dinner and enjoying a glass of wine.
