I'm an easy-going, down-to-earth, caring woman with a great sense
of humor. I am an honest, loyal and supportive friend and partner.
I am a warm weather person and my favorite place is the beach or
anywhere outside in nice weather. In the winter I am happiest
curled up in front of the fireplace with a nice glass of wine and
hopefully someone to share it with, if not then I always have a
good book to read. I love to entertain, cook and try new recipes
but also take pleasure in dining out at new and different places. I
have sailed to most of the Caribbean islands and have enjoyed
boating on Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River for many years.
What I’m doing with my life
I am the portfolio director for commercial properties and
investments and have been at the same firm for over 28 years. As
much as l enjoy my work, I hope to retire within a few years. In my
spare time I read, watch the news nightly, match wits with the
contestants on Jeopardy, meet friends for dinner or brunch/lunch,
go to the theatre, concerts and museums/galleries. I am always
planning the next vacation, hopefully Europe again this year. Last
year I went to St Croix, Bethany Beach, DE, Bend,OR, Cape May, NJ,
Mt Dora, FL & Boca Raton, FL. It's wonderful to have good
friends that live in great places to visit. I have never been on a
cruise but am looking forward to my first one, maybe Alaska or the
I’m really good at
Cooking because I enjoy it so much, listening to and caring about
everything my friends have to say and I'm a pretty decent Scrabble
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes are usually what people comment about.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read the WP daily and NYT on weekends, I like mysteries and
thrillers, Cussler, Baldacci and Childs/Preston to name a few. I am
not a fan of horror or war movies but open to anything else. I
enjoy most music ((except rap) but my favorites are old rock &
roll and classical. I love grouper and have been known to eat it
every day while in Fl but its not too easy to find in this area. I
enjoy everything from burgers & beer to gourmet dinners and
The six things I could never do without
Family and friends - I hope that counts as one or I am already over
my limit. My Kindle and wifi to download new books. My favorite
pieces of art. Photo albums that are not on my computer, iPad or
phone. My iPhone that has all the contact info for everyone I know
and all my downloaded music. My passport.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to answer all the endless questions on okcupid:-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing after the work week, planning the weekend and catching up
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I admitted it, it would not be private any more.
