My self-summary
Welcome! Nice of you to drop by for a visit.

While I believe I'm an amazing woman, I'm savvy enough to know that I'm a bit of an enigma--some sweet and a lot of spicy to make me a challenge and not a pushover. That almost sounds like some secret sauce, doesn't it?

As a complex woman ( I guess that's a given), I am: Active, dancer, vivacious, independent, traveller, fit, drama-free, inquisitive, tactile, real, optimistic, ENTJ, playful, movie and sports lover, sometimes klutzy and wordy--can't you tell?, impatient, technologically and vertically challenged, night owl who gets up early, and have been known to bite back if bitten. Gently.
What I’m doing with my life
Retired interior designer. Current federal employee. Daily workout. Spending way too much time watching sports--Terrapin basketball is in full swing--and movies, and reading Houzz online. Hiking Path of the Gods in Italy. Spending New Year's Eve in Naples. Florida, this time. House projects. Book of Mormon at Hippodrome. Exploring the road of no regrets. Investment club. Living in the present. Lambeau field for MNF. Fabulous. Even in the rain.
I’m really good at
Dancing anywhere.
Running with scissors.
Avoiding drama.
Double entendres.
Wearing skirts, dresses and heels.
Traveling with one carry on bag.
The first things people usually notice about me
A word that bears mentioning: callipygian. Look it up. Don't have to? Even better!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Gone With the Wind and Bull Durham. Chris Issak, Keith Urban, Johns Mayer and Legend, Rihanna, Maroon 5, and more recently Sam Smith and Darius Rucker. Food? Ok, I have to admit: bacon. Not much of a tv watcher, except for sports, Homeland, Blacklist and Game of Thrones (blame my sons for getting me interested in these shows, and yes, I do close my eyes during the gory parts). I love lacrosse and the Packers.

Prefer activity and books, like The Four Agreements, Blink, Tipping Point, The Art of Racing in the Rain and Born to Run. Most recently: Chosen Prey. Any suggestions?

Absolutely love the pictures of you smiling, that show the twinkle in your eyes. Pictures with palm trees work well too. However, the hook that snags me is your descriptive profile. Keep up the great work.
The six things I could never do without
Optimism, hope, faith, Love with a big L. I vascillate over 5 and 6. Of course, one of those could be you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My favorite saying is: Things happen for a reason, just believe.

I also believe in the miracle of second love and together we are better.

Wondering if the words here matter, or if you just check out the pics. Thank you to everyone (who read this far) and for confirming, it's all about the pictures.

Friendship on fire describes what I seek--that all important spark of attraction. Mentally stimulating. Easygoing demeanor. Nice. Charming like Rhett Butler. Southern accent optional. If you sport an engaging smile or great hands (good for opening jars or reaching the top shelf) or want to know more, then please send me a message.

Life doesn't always turn out as expected. Sometimes, it's even better.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ready for a new adventure.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Pick one:

I may not be perfect, but parts of me are excellent.

My boys call me delicate flower.

I'm able to make this journey alone, but desire one extraordinary connection.

Still not satisfied, are you?

Ok, one last attempt...I would love to take tango, swing or salsa lessons and dance the night away.
You should message me if
You made it through my entire profile, you'd like to race go-carts, hit a bucket of golf balls, have an adventure, go for a walk or a bike ride, live with zest, or you can relate to Annie Savoy and Crash Davis' connection in Bull Durham. Would you, could you be my kryptonite? For really big points, let's go dancing. If you're a non-couch potato who can string together a couple of sentences to engage in witty banter, then...

Tag, you're it!

For those of you unfamiliar with Crash Davis: fit, articulate, mentally challenging, confident, loved an independent woman with a vulnerable heart, and passionate about something--not necessarily baseball.

And if not, then good luck in your deserve to find the love of your life.
