My self-summary
I believe in love. I love my life, family, friends and man’s best friend.
I try living with peace, clarity, and appreciate all that’s good.
My favorite role in life is being a mom and cherish the friendship I have with my adult daughter.
I’m a sentimental girl, a bit of an optimist and kind of a romantic. I’m fun, funny, practical, thoughtful, good at details, affectionate, and can be a little quirky. I appreciate honesty, compassion, humor, kindness and wit.
I enjoy inspiring the lives of the young, and the old whether it be in a classroom, the arts, conversation or song. Presently, I teach part-time in the primary grades.
While my enthusiasm for life and travel is plentiful, being grounded and prioritizing what’s most important to me is of great value.
I find simple pleasures and special moments to be most rewarding and respect the traditions of family and comforts of home.
Although I’ve been happily living my single life for sometime, I’m looking for a good man to share all that life has to offer.
I like a guy who is intellectually curious, a good communicator and enthusiastic. I enjoy being supportive, appreciate and take pride in being a part of his endeavors and I know how to fit in.
What I ultimately want in a relationship is a mutually honest, supportive, passionate partner, and friend.
What I’m doing with my life
I appreciate living a balanced healthy lifestyle. I love to walk, practice yoga, bike, banter, enjoy singing, writing poems, and love to dance.
Among my many passions, I like a variety of activities with family and friends.
There isn’t much I won’t try.
I like the excitement of the city, the charms of the town I live in, the peacefulness of the country, green fields, water, rain and snow.
My goals are to continue to evolve spiritually, grow in wisdom and grace.
I try to do the right thing.
I want to share this road trip of life with a best friend who makes me laugh.

A favorite quote: “Life isn’t about finding yourself.
Life is about creating yourself.”
George Bernard Shaw
I’m really good at
Mostly anything that includes mind, heart and soul.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my eyes, my spirit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a pile of recently purchased books sitting on my loft table. I belong to a book club and haven’t completed a book yet.
Currently, I’m taking a class to fulfill a long time goal to read the most important book from cover to cover.

I love watching Movies cuddled up at home or at the theater.
For homework, I listed favorite Actors, Directors and Best Films. 8 pg’s later I decided to reveal some favorites to get an idea, but, it wasn’t easy : )

When I do sit down for some T.V. r&r, I predominately find myself searching for the tried and trues; Seinfeld, Frazier, King of Queens, New Adventures of Old Christine, Raymond, Sex in the City and Two and a Half Men.
I enjoy a few reality shows; American Idol, Celebrity Apprentice, and at times Dancing with The Stars and The Bachelor.

I like a variety of music, especially that inspires to dance and sing.
A little bit of country, a lot of rock and roll.
The 60’s, 70’s and 80’s K-hits still do it for me. I know a lot of lyrics or at least I think I do : )
There’s nothing like classic rock.
A few favorites, Chicago, Aerosmith, Alabama, Skynyrd, Zeppelin, Journey and Stones.
Cat Stevens, James Taylor and Diana Krall.
Lots of American Operetta, Big Band too, some R&B, Jazz, Christian and Blues.

In addition, Bob Seeger, Bruce, Billy Holiday, and Joel, Tom Petty, the Cars and James Brown.
I enjoy supporting local musician friends and local plays of fellow thespians.

I cook and I love a man that cooks.
Better yet, I like to cook alongside him.
Six things I could never do without
my daughter
my dog
my faith
my family & friends
music & laughter
meaningful exchanges
and beyond chance coincidences
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I’m grateful for
my priorities
On a typical Friday night I am
out having dinner, dancing, listening to music, perhaps going to a movie with family/ friends, or sometimes solo.

or... spending time relaxing at home with my dog, Delia.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
wouldn’t you like to know?
You should message me if
you’re a genuine guy with a big heart and a good sense of humor.
you know how to be a good friend and you're proud of the things that you’ve accomplished in your
you love a good talk and you get me.
The two of us
