My self-summary
I think like an artist, by that I mean that I don't look at life as having just straight lines, I bend them with my imagination, turning black and white into blue and yellow - some people see what I see, but regardless, I've piqued their curiosity with my originality and inventiveness. I am a successful professional and parent, happy with who I am and life, despite feeling lately like something is missing. The things that are most important to me are my family and friends, and being all that I can be and the best person I can be. Money is important to live, but has never been my god....I place a high importance on my career and am fortunate enough to have landed in a very unique environment where we all work to our strengths and still have fun everyday.

I am looking for that special man who can capture and hold my attention and be confident enough to know that he is worth my time. I believe that fun comes from who you are with rather than what you are doing; the guy who can be good company and transform the mundane into a great time, is the one I have been waiting to find. The art of conversation is important to me and the ones who can hold their own with both the silly and serious topics will spark my interest...Laughter needs to be the norm, not the exception, since after all, isn't life to be enjoyed rather than merely gotten through? I believe in love at first sight and Santa!!! In my younger years I saw only in black and white and was very passionate in my beliefs of what was right and wrong - I was told by a very important person in my life that I would mellow with age and eventually see the world as not so clearly in strictly black or white and see the shades of gray that life really is about, and he was right......

BTW, a man in a crisp white shirt will ALWAYS get a second look from me..... :)

"Embrace frayed edges, worn pages and laugh lines.....true beauty lies in imperfections."
What I’m doing with my life
I'm settled in my career and enjoy going to work everyday where each day is different and one is never sure what the day will hold! In my non-working hours, I devote some time to volunteering and doing what I can for those in need. My current passionate cause is fundraising for Manes and Motions which is a therapeutic riding center, helping children and adults living with cognitive and physical disabilities with the opportunity to enjoy equine-related activities for therapeutic, recreational, sport and educational purposes. I am also an avid reader, love to cook and immensely enjoy the game of baseball. I have a special place in my heart for horses having owned a couple when my daughter was growing up. I keep very active, exercising several times a week and enjoying all kinds of outdoor activities. In the summer, the very best personal day would be spent ocean-side, sunbathing and reading a good book. I have a thirst for learning new things and will take classes that interest me or attend programs that enrich me on some level. LOVE the game of Scrabble and have multiple games of Words With Friends going at all times!
I’m really good at
I am a very good listener and problem solver with my compassionate personality. I cook well and love to experiment with new recipes. I have an eye for design and love creating beautiful things. I'm very good at being a good friend and always have time for those who mean a lot to me - my daughter thinks I'm the best mother ever so I must be doing something right there as well!
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told that people are drawn to me for my easy going mannerisms and warmth which is apparent. I can immediately put people at ease and have a kind and giving soul. And then there is always my hair...... :) well actually it USED to be my hair which I have now grown out to look more look a mother of the bride!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books are too numerous to mention, but of late I've been drawn to reading Lisa Gardner and Harlan Coben who tells the cold truth and in today's world there is a lot of that. I also enjoy Jodi Picoult for the same reason of portraying real life on a page. I enjoy movies and recently thoroughly enjoyed seeing Lincoln. I LOVE plays and theater in general and am enjoying being a seasons ticket holder at Connecticut Cabaret theater where you can bring your own anything in and enjoy a very unique evening! I adore Italian food and when I'm craving something and feeling very hungry, often times my choice is pizza. I eat a lot of salad and consider that a must in my life - not a huge meat eater in general but I do enjoy good food!
Six things I could never do without
Never, ever could do without sunshine, would never want to be without my family and friends, would find it difficult to be in a place where there wasn't a beach and ocean (Martha's Vineyard esp.) - would miss vacations immensely, life without my daughter is unthinkable and I personally need and thrive on intelligent and stimulating conversation, as well as laughter. Oops, forgot reading!!!!!!!!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot of how wonderful it would be to meet a person with whom I click with on every level - at this point in my life, there would be nothing better than to ride out these golden years with the perfect person for me and I will never give up looking - I know that you are out there somewhere waiting to be found.....looking for the one that will take my breath away and sweep me off my feet - I would also enjoy taking your breath away....
On a typical Friday night I am
relaxing with friends after a very busy week. On Fridays, I like to be out early and home fairly early to start the weekend. I think old age must be creeping up on me since I no longer enjoy being out til the wee hours of the morning.... :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
that I miss my mom, who has passed away, every day.
You should message me if
my profile intrigues you and you would like to know more -
if you are in a stable life environment of your own, have limited baggage that doesn't affect your daily life - if you have a sense of humor and appreciate one - if you are looking for a genuine woman who doesn't play games, is loyal, and will own my heart if you are the one - if you are looking for a woman who is not your average, run of the mill, cookie cutter type of a gal-
if you are willing to try and find that last great love......
The two of us
