Avonlea is looking for a gentleman who knows how to take care of a Texas woman. She may be a city-slicker now, but she lived on a ranch until she was 13, and up until that point in her life, she assumed everyone had cattle in their homes. With her degree in ranch management, this Texas beauty has quite a diverse lifestyle. When Avonlea's not working hard in the family cattle ranching business, she's strutting her stuff on the runway for local Texas designers. "There are days when I'm baling hay in the morning and going and doing a runway show at night." You could definitely say Avonlea lives the best of both worlds. Avonlea's ideal husband knows what he wants and goes for it! She wants someone who values family above all and believes in romantic signs from above. Speaking of signs, Avonlea's parents first met when her mom was a flight attendant. Sound familiar?
