My self-summary
I'm a vibrant, intelligent and happy woman who just moved back to the Chicago area from Vermont, and just before that, Houston where I was working on my graduate degree. I've lived in NYC, LA, Italy, Germany among others, and I miss all those places very much. I enjoy music (especially classical), travel (especially international), fine wine, languages, horses (and most animals), romance and the outdoors. I also love my kitty who is a fellow world traveler. I enjoy witty conversation about all sorts of topics, and I'm extremely adventuresome, especially with regards to travel. Last year, I visited Thailand and the year before that, Russia. I have also traveled in Holland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and more.

If you are addicted to the TV, I am not your gal. Re sports: I like going to live sports (hockey, baseball, football, equestrian!!) and watching the World Cup, but I am NOT a fanatic.
