My self-summary
I'm easy-going, flexible, fun-loving and energetic! I love to spend time outdoors going to concert events, festivals, sports games, seasonal activities, etc. When I'm off for the summer, I really enjoy the ocean. I feel at peace there...something about the rhythm of the tides, I guess.

Nowadays, I like to keep my mind open to different opportunities and experiences. Traveling and meeting new friends are a top priority. I enjoy having conversations with people, getting to know what's important to them really can show their the saying "the eyes are the windows to the soul"....I believe there's something to that.

I'm down-to earth and I think my friends/family appreciate that in me. I'm dependable and the go-to person when you need advice or just a friendly ear. Loyalty and respect are important traits to me, so I hold those things paramount in all my relationships.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a teacher by profession, and on the side, I still perform plays with my theatre troupe. I like to challenge myself with different activities, so my next adventure might involve taking a workshop and learning how to fix something around the house. (Look out....hide the power tools!) I was thinking maybe a ceiling fan or new tile floor for kitchen. I love to travel and most recently I visited Montana. I got to live a dream on a dude ranch and ride horses with my daughter. Spectacular "big sky country"...I highly recommend it!
I’m really good at
I love teaching because I've always been passionate about learning...especially reading! If I really love a book, I will stay up all night to finish it. My biggest challenge/thrill is passing on this knowledge to my students. I get such a kick when they have a "light bulb" moment and you know all your hard work has finally paid's like winning the lottery!

Singing/dancing, it's what makes me happy and keeps me young. I think music is the great equalizer among people. I enjoy performing for others, and learning new songs is always exciting to me.

I'm a great conversationalist, and put people at ease right away. My communication/observation skills have served me well in every job that I've ever undertaken. The power of words/speech can be very commanding, thoughtful, funny....even romantic!
The first things people usually notice about me
It's a tie! Yes, between my hazel eyes ...........
I'm told green eyes are the rarest color (thanks Dad!) and there's just a splash of brown for contrast (thanks Mom!) Nice chemistry, huh? winning smile!
My friends say I "light up the room" when I enter. Thanks Crest/ cavities either!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: Love John Grisham novels (Think I was a lawyer in another life!) Nicholas Sparks...obviously, romantic, remember?
And, Jane Austen...fascinated with that time period: great clothes, people spoke eloquently, and manners were in style!

MOVIES: How much time do you have? Let's see, to name just a few: Planes, Trains, Automobiles (anything with John Candy...what a teddy bear!) Cohen Bros. classics like "Raising Arizona", Godfather I and II, Outlaw Josey Wales, Titanic, Stand By Me, Dances With Wolves, Gone With The Wind, To Kill A Mockingbird, Tootsie, Arthur, Gladiator, the list goes on......

SHOWS: Law and Order (Original and SVU...NOT Criminal Intent), Food Network shows w/Giada or Bobby Flay, also Chopped, and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, re-runs of Two and a Half Men

MUSIC: Pretty much every genre: country, classic /alternative rock, blues, jazz, standards (really enjoy going to live performances!!)

FOOD: Enjoy a variety of foods, usually chicken dishes, but I love a great steak too! Have to have some type of potato's in the blood....IRISH!
Six things I could never do without
MUSIC- soothes my soul!
FAMILY-keeps me grounded!
FRIENDS-my lifeline/sounding board!
BOOKS-fuel my imagination!
TRAVEL-opens new possibilities!
NATURE-inspires me to be better!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Different travel destinations: There's so much to see and do, even right here in our own country! I want to fill my life with more wonderful memories of the people and places that make this world so special!
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday is flexible depending on my schedule. Sometimes, I might want to curl up with a book or watch TV. Often, I like to have dinner with friends, go dancing, sing karaoke, or take in a concert/movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a work- in- progress like everyone else, and I am not above admitting when I make a mistake. I appreciate others that can acknowledge the same. The old addage: "love means never having to say your sorry" is wayyy off base! Saying you're sorry means you're a grown up and "evolved"...and don't forget, saying it with flowers, a candle-lit dinner, or maybe a foot massage can only earn bonus points!
You should message me if
You're interested in great conversation, curious about anything you read, or yes....if you were drawn in by my eyes or smile and want to know how you can make them sparkle even more!
The two of us
