I appreciate good food and wine and enjoy entertaining friends and family. Nothing's more fun than preparing for a gathering of folks in my home. From recipes to decorating...it gives my artistic side the opportunity to shine.
I've traveled internationally and lived abroad in France. I love road trips and discovering little hidden places. It's the adventure and discovering new foods, cultures, and friends that intrigue me. My easy-going style makes me a terrific travel partner. But no worries, walks on the beach, hikes in the woods, quiet time curled up in front of the fire, are favorites to me too.
I have three grown and married daughters who do not live near, so traveling for visits is part of my routine. I have one young granddaughter, who brings me a great deal of joy. I appreciate modern technology that makes it so easy to stay in touch.
No day is the same, but each includes time to relax and care for my home and myself.
I enjoy going to the movies and shows/theater and am always up for live music from a trip to the symphony to local musicians to guitars around the campfire. Dance has a special place in my heart from years of lessons and teaching. From ballet to ballroom I love watching and hope to have the opportunity to try a little ballroom once again.
Cooked a lot when raising my children and do a decent job for myself these days. More fun is being a sous chef or spending a Saturday preparing a feast for family or friends. Washington is known for their excellent wines, which leads to wine tasting outings and sometimes picnics.
