Turtle Lover

I am a self-employed graphic and web designer. I've had my own business for about 7 years and love what I do and my clients that I work with. I have two boys who live with me most of the time. Together, we do a lot of volunteering for various Missouri Stream Teams and River Relief groups. We have a stream that we have adopted to take care of and keep trash picked up. We love to kayak, canoe and camp. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to work from home in my PJs, and to be here any time my kids need me, to be the mother I want to be for them. I spend as much time being grateful and do my best to view life through a lens of compassion. I don't really watch television. I can't even tell you the last time I turned on the news. You won't find me on Facebook - I'm not really on any social media. I sorta (intentionally) live under a rock, which is why I think the turtle might be my spirit animal. I love being in nature and have my own kayaks so that I can throw them up on the car and go in a moment's notice if I want/need to get away. I love to play my little ukulele, although I have only had it a couple of months, so it's still a little rough. But, I love it and play it almost daily. I also play piano, love to paint, sing, dance, hike, explore (or "rocksplore" as I call it ... looking for rocks for my collection). I love sleeping in a tent in the rain. I even like the smell of petrichor after the rain. I like to read, make jewelry, listen to records, make soaps and body butters. I probably have too many hobbies, but I wouldn't change a thing. I feel incredibly blessed and fulfilled in my life. But, how cool would it be to find a forever someone to share it with? Just sayin' ...
