Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am energetic, loyal, adventurous and grounded. I enjoy spending a
quiet night at home cooking a great dinner as much as going out for
a night on the town. Some of my favorite activities are cooking,
gardening, reading, antiquing, yoga, hiking, skiing and
rollerblading. And, I am always up for trying something new, as for
me most anything is better when shared with a special
One of my biggest passions is health and nutrition. My philosophy
is if my grandparents didn't eat it, perhaps I shouldn't either! I
think a lot about where my next meal will come from - literally -
from production to table - and the impact our current food system
has on our environment. I support local farmers, the co-ops and
vote with my fork every chance I get. While it isn't necessary that
I share all my interests with a potential match, this one is very
important to me.
I have two kids (9 & 14) who are with me more than 50% of the
time. Still, it would be great to meet someone special to spend my
'non parent' times with, at least early on in a relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Took a leap of faith two years ago and started professionally

Probably that I am short! I also (almost) always have a smile on my
face -- must be noticeable as my friends definitely comment when
I'm not smiling.

I enjoy reading, and seem to move between top-selling fiction, cook
books and the occasional self-help or parenting book. The last book
I read was Inheritance (the last of a 4 book fantasy series)
because my son also read the series and it gives us something to
I watch very little TV, and movies are somewhat limited to things
my kids can watch. I won't watch anything with a lot of
My music tastes are pretty varied -- I used to say anything but
country and rap. Well, of course my kids like rap / hip-hop, so I
am trying to like it.
Food...too many favorites to choose from! Anything from a grass-fed
steak to spicy Indian food to sushi. I'll try almost anything once.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

How to raise happy, healthy children in today's society.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

comfortable in casual clothes and no make-up, I would prefer to
continue hiding the silver hair that started when I was in my
