Have a great appreciation for the beauty of my surroundings, whether it is the mountains of Asheville or the beautiful lakes in Michigan, and the joy of sharing it with good friends and family. Also, passionate about the arts; opera, symphony and theatre, particularly Puccini and Beethoven. Also love Strauss.
I love animals and do volunteer work with the Boston Terrier rescue. I have two and they are my children. Would like to connect with another animal lover. Always busy with other volunteer, community work and church. Giving back is important.
I like to cook but don't do much just for myself. Love to bake and at holiday time, it is a must. There is nothing more warming on a cold day than the aroma of cookies baking in the oven. Eating them is pretty good, also.
My old-fashioned gentleman will be kinda handsome, stable, educated, can slow dance, make me laugh and be able to look into my eyes and read my mind--a hopeless romantic who believes, as I do, in the simple aspects of romance; holding hands, stolen kisses, unspoken glances. He does not need to be an avid reader, golfer, skier, camper, hunter or fisherman. Not into cycles. I am up for anything as long as it is with the person that I care about. Used to golf regularly but had shoulder issues and am working on getting back into the game. If the chemistry is there, the rest will follow. Please no Liberals; prefer politically and socially Conservatives. Also, please provide a photo, a current one. Thank you.
I am a volunteer with the Eastern TN boston terrier rescue and Manna Food Bank. Living today and planning for tomorrow.
