I have a tendency to laugh and find humor in most things. Try to put a smile on daily. I've been told my laugh is distinctive. The eyes and smile tell a lot when getting to know someone. (often the key to the heart)
I have been told that I look and act younger than my pictures. I am a loyal friend; thoughtful and caring. I'm sensitive and have an appreciation for thoughtfulness. I have high expectations for myself and look for it in others: integrity, honesty and openness.
I'm hard working but like my down time to have fun or simply relax. I like the exhausted accomplishment after all day of hard physical work. Just not every day. I love spending time with my kids. They are both in Boston. One in college; one working. They are great people; smart and loving. Staying home and relaxing in front of crackling fire (my fireplace is outside) with a drink is nice too. Snuggling on the couch and enjoying time together. The comfort from that connection is huge!
I like adventure-will try just about anything. Things I haven't done but would try or like to learn-scuba diving, jumping from a plane, hang gliding and more! I screamed with delight when I skied my first black diamond runs; it was magic. Being on or near the water is like being home.
I hope to travel more, see more cultures, eat weird foods, see big city performances. Help out somewhere in the world when I get to retire.
I'm more comfortable barefoot and in jeans than in heels. Can't see how people wear heels all day long. My favorite "heels" are my cowboy boots. I have a few pairs. I do have a number of "out on the town" dresses; not many opportunities to wear them living in the country. If there's good music, I can dance for hours! The bars are unappealing solo. I do like to go out and enjoy music and dancing; just isn't much fun alone.

knowing I am cared for
companionship, communication and warmth

I spend a good amount of my time thinking about how to provide for the varied skills of the kids in my classroom.
