Artistic, adventurous, creative, spontaneous, resourceful, strong, fearless, passionate, and fun. I'm a dedicated mom and I love my job (I operate a small florist business out of my home). I am a Baal Teshuva of 20 years . I am a very hard worker, love to read, go camping with my kids (yes, we go every summer and pitch a tent). I build, fix, sew, and repair just about anything around my house, and actually like it (most of the time).I am passionate about music, and my taste is very eclectic (classical, Flamenco, Irish, Jazz, rock, latino). I am well read, and am usually in the middle of 3 or 4 books at any given time (fiction as well as non-fiction). I love outdoors, and have actually spent most of my teens hiking and camping. Even though i've been through some challenging times , I am a hopeless romantic and still believe in the "real thing" happening like in a good novel.
