Hometown: Pittsburgh, PA
May 19, 2013
West Hills (Barnes/Burnside). We've rented in a high end complex for 4 years now. Given the turnover in our complex it would be nice to meet more rooted people in the neighborhood. We also don't have any family here so it would be nice to meet neighbors/friends with homes, maybe other kids and/or dogs.
My primary focus is my awesome 4 yr old daughter who I have primary and sole legal custody of and our beagle mix dog who is 9 years old. She's in full-time pre-school while I re-enter the workforce with dual degrees since my last big job/company was acquired in 2009 when Mia was only 6 months old. As a former college athlete, I'm still very active in athletics which this season primarily consists of softball and kickball. We both like to stay busy and with no yard or much housework to manage since we live in a nice apt complex we like to hike, go to parks, picnic, markets, swim, etc. I also like body combat, wine and taking amateur photos which I diligently organize and sometimes frame. I also like to cook and entertain although our space is small its warm, cozy and loved.
I'm an east coast transplant who has lived in Portland for 8 years (out west for 11 yrs). I'm also a college educated single mom to an awesome 4 yr old with no family here who would like to meet others in this neighborhood.
