My self-summary
I am a mindful, compassionate and thoughtful woman. I am a nurse, artist, actor, gardener. I paint primarily in oils but also enjoy sketching and drawing. I have been active in theater in my area for years. I am a member of an improvisational comedy troupe who performs regularly.

I enjoy being in nature whether it's birding, hiking, canoeing, camping, biking, running, etc. I have often thought that nature is my chapel so I am not really a religious person but consider myself spiritual.

I also love to laugh and I am looking for a man with a great, clever, smart and witty sense of humor who can make me belly over with guffawing on a regular basis. Well, not really but I love to laugh and for me, the connection tends to be stronger when there is shared laughter often.

I am looking for a man who is compassionate, thoughtful and mindful as well. Someone who is liberal and openminded. A man with an appreciation for art, theater and the environment. A man who is caring and loyal. Who will help that little old lady cross the street. A confident, sexy man.

Spending time outdoors during the Spring, Summer and Fall is important to me whether it's hiking, kayaking, gardening, watching birds or just strolling through a charming, quaint coastal town. Sharing those experiences with someone I love is truly living.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The outdoors and nature. During the warmer months I love to hike, bike, run, kayak, garden, roller blade and take day trips to anywhere. I love all kinds of fairs and festivals especially the crafty ones. You may also find me at a flea market.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends. Out with my daughter or home watching a movie or reading a good book enjoying a glass or two of wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can juggle. I also, to relieve a little nervousness before a performance, snap and clap my hands together to the William Tell Overture. I can't believe I just typed that but it's true!. I can also spin a basketball on my finger for an extended period of time. :)
You should message me if
You enjoy nature and all its wonderful creatures living in it. You enjoy being active and having fun. You enjoy staying in, cooking a comforting meal and enjoying a glass of wine or spending the day on a river kayaking and soaking up the wonderful scenery. You are kind with a warm heart, confident and sexy. You love affection and closeness but are not smothering. MUST LOVE DOGS! My two dogs are part of the family. I'm looking for someone who works to live, not lives to work. I look forward to hearing from you if you feel we are a good match!
