I'm a simple girl that likes simple things: the view from my
apartment when I wake up in the morning, a fire in the fireplace, a
home cooked meal, my dog's belly (and everything else about her).
I'm happy, easy to be around, have lots of interests and I'm
looking for the same things in a partner.
What I’m doing with my life
I really enjoy my life, my work, excellent friends, travel, my

later as I was going through security at the airport that I would
have to explain the lead in my body without the visible
Movies: mostly foreign or arty. Latest favorites: Boyhood, Whiplash
are 2 that come to mind.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
