My husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary a few months before he was killed in a car accident on March 21, 2013.We had just found out our 6th baby was a girl. I was 18 weeks with our youngest. We had a great marriage. Perfect? No. Without ups & downs? No. We loved each other. We chose love for each other every day including the day he passed and that is what made it work. I have 6 beautiful, intelligent, funny, amazing kids as a sign of that love. Knowing the path, I would not choose differently. I have 3 girls and 3 boys ages 12 to 3.
Love being a mom but miss being a girlfriend. My kiddos & I do just fine on our own, but if God wills, the right person will enhance our lives. Someone to love and guide us through the journey to heaven. Love my Catholic faith and all the promise it holds! Looking forward to romance & hopefully finding someone to navigate life with.
My family is close, I am number 2 of 8. I have 3 brothers & 4 sisters, my parents will be welcoming grand baby 17 in august. We are each others friends. We are loud, sarcastic, fun, protective & loving. Picture "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"!
My mom is my best friend, she is my wisdom, my calm, my laughter, my common sense, my Catholic faith. I talk to her often and lean on her lifetime of experience & faith. If I am half the woman my mother is, I would be happy.
A perfect end to a long winter day is to put the kids to bed and grab a glass of wine. Then to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers game on the DVR & fold laundry. Or to grab a glass of wine & a book & head for the bath tub.
I love summer thunderstorms, and quiet nights with the right guy. I like to go out to eat or have a few drinks with friends.
Shopping is my participation sport of choice - I like to go just to look even.
I like to decorate my home and watch a lot of HGTV - even though I'm not the handiest.
I'm definitely a girlie girl. But I am learning for the sake of my children to do more outdoor activities like fishing.
I'm excited for the next chapter of my life ...
