My friends would describe me as smart, loyal, trustworthy, and kind-hearted. I'm more of a listener than one who dominates a conversation. I'm independent and not a high stress or high maintenance type of girl... it takes a lot to get my riled up or angry. I think that Sunday morning sweats and a cup of coffee is a great way to start the day. I'm athletic and competitive (have been my whole life). I played basketball in college but have had to give that up since having a few knee surgeries. As a replacement, I've spent the past number of years coaching middle school girls basketball in my town, which is as exhausting as it is fun. During the summer, I'm happiest when I'm out on a boat either reading a book or just cruising along. (I prefer a lake to the ocean - mainly because I'm afraid of sharks but also because that's how I grew up.) Finishing off a summer day with a Bud Light and bonfire sounds pretty perfect.
I love my family and see them often. My brothers and I are the oldest cousins in a big Irish family. I've always been one to show up for whatever they are involved in - whether it be a some athletic event or a theater production. I have a nephew that's almost a year old who I adore and who can make me smile in a second. Seeing him start to grow up makes me look forward to the day when I have a family of my own.
I consider myself a kid at heart and like to laugh. I work hard and have a good head on my shoulders, but don't take myself too seriously. I'd say my sense of humor probably borders a little on sarcastic side. I lived in the city after college for a bit, but bought a house in the 'burbs a few years ago. I never realized how much work goes into owning a home...lots of yard work :) I think that I have a pretty great life, and am looking to find that someone to share it with. I'm sure it sounds pretty clich? but I'm simply looking for a nice, good guy - someone that is honest, fun-loving, would treat me well, and that wants to have a family of his own someday. Someone that likes to laugh, has goals for himself, and enjoys hanging out cooking/grilling in as much as going out on the town. If that sounds like you, feel free to drop me and email and maybe we could grab a drink :)
