Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

good job with whatever I tackle. I'm fun and friendly, and I have
most of those Girl Scout traits. I'm always surprised when someone

I'd like to connect with someone to share quiet times with, and
also go to all the interesting events around town. Concerts,
theater, movies, festivals, fairs. I like to go out and about or

running my two short term vacation rentals. (Who would have thought
I'd be ironing sheets on a regular basis!)I have moved into my
dream house and I try to keep busy to pay the mortgage. :)
I also try to travel whenever possible..to California, Boston,, and
Florida (former homes of mine) and to Europe, my favorite
I was an expat most of the 80s and I'd really love to meet someone
who knows what that's like. I miss the lifestyle a lot.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Parallel parking, finding parking spaces, writing, turning ugly
houses beautiful, Scrabble, hosting jams, traveling, photography,
taking care of my 16 year old neurotic and needy cat, and Cally my
6 month old adorable kitten, moving, real estate, getting things
done, helping clients buy and sell homes, being a friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told my smile, and my eyes. Also my friendliness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I just read a very funny book..the Rosie Project. All time
favorites would be The Magus, The Caretaker, King's 11/23/63 (but

A house project to work on
The ocean (I really miss it!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think I'd rather talk about this once I know someone.
On a typical Friday night I am

Home alone..or hosting a Scrabble night, or heading out to a
concert, or eating out with a friend

You think we might be a match...I know I don't have many photos of
