I am a divorced single mother, of an adorable 13 year old girl. I returned to the Chicagoland area from San Francisco to be closer to my family. I recently changed cities to put my daughter in a better middle school. I am easygoing, and love to live life to it's fullest everyday. I am a romantic, a dreamer, yet a realist. I embrace the unknown and create possibilities for it. I've gotten most everything I've wanted from life thus far, because I've gone after it and made it a reality for myself. The simple things in life amuse me. I left a high paying career in NYC to volunteer and teach children for a year in Costa Rica. It changed my life forever! Confrontational people and dishonesty stop me. I believe everyone is good until they have wronged me deeply, and then it is usually too late. Once I have a friend, they are a friend for life. I like to be silly and dance in the rain once in a while! Recently, I have taken up jogging...I love that it gets me outdoors everyday and helps me focus on the day ahead!
