My self-summary
"When I fall in love, it will be forever." ... lyrics to a great old song that describes me pretty well....I still believe in that crazy fairy tale and I am hopelessly romantic. I am willing to put it all out there to find the one for me. (I got that line from The Bachelor)
I am a positive, upbeat person and I seem to find fun and laughter no matter the occasion.
I don't really fit into a certain type. I am very grounded but I can also be silly. I am interested in all subjects and I enjoyed being a teacher but I have a creative side and feel best when I am able to express that side.
I do feel compelled to say the my pics are current. I did not post ten year old pictures, nor did I post a picture of my younger sister. (I don't really have a sister)
What I’m doing with my life
I was a professional singer for many years, and I also enjoy creating a comfortable living space so I like to decorate a bit. Home is like a safe haven for me. (After all, I am a Cancer) I work out, but sometimes I get an ice cream on the way home. I walk my dog or maybe she walk me. I ride my bike whenever I can. Spending time with my family is another important part of of my life. Life is a journey and my children and I have weathered many storms, but we have grown and become better people and closer than ever.
I’m really good at
analyzing a problem and working on a solution, handling whatever comes along in life, making my friends laugh, and loving those I care about.
The first things people usually notice about me
not sure, but maybe my hair or my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: classics like To Kill a Mockingbird, Caine Mutiny, Jane Eyre, Grapes of Wrath, plus any historical novels, good mysteries, and biographies.
Movies: Breakfast at Tiffany's, Witness, It Happened One Night, Weekend at Bernie's, Love With the Proper Stranger,
Shows: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in NYC, taking my mom to see Frank Sinatra on her 70th with her memory of seeing him in her youth with Tommy Dorsey, taking my daughter to see the Nutcracker,
Concerts: Eagles during the Hell Freezes over Tour, Paul McCartney in Wrigley Field, Neil Diamond who sang at least 2 hours straight and every song a mega hit, Buddy Guy at the Vogue in Indy.
Music: so many songs, hmmm...I'll just name some vocalists I love: Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Etta James, Tina Turner, Dusty Springfield, Beatles, Aretha, Smokey, any R & B. Recent artists, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Rhianna, Alicia Keys.....on and on.
Food: I love all kinds of food, but a great steak is my fav.
Six things I could never do without
1. my family
2. laughter
3. music
4. high heels and blue jeans
5. oceans and lakes
6. my man.."lover man, oh where can you be"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I want to do when I grow up.
On a typical Friday night I am
with my family, cooking, relaxing at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can be a little shy but you would never know it.
You should message me if
you have a good sense of humor, might grow to like a little white dog, love anything on the water, and try to stay in shape
The two of us
