Not sure exactly where to start so I will start with the basics. I love jeans and a t-shirt but also love to get dressed up (nothing like a beautiful dress that fits just right). I am an independent, compassionate, dedicated, loving, sincere, optimistic, person. I love my kids 19, 16, 9 and 6 and enjoy spending time with them. They grow up so fast so I treasure every minute with them. I love life and appreciate everything I have been blessed with. I love to laugh and have a great sense of humor. I am scared to death of motorcycles and my idea of camping is a cabin with running water and electricity :-). For exercise I LOVE to walk. I try to get out several times a week. When my kids are grown I would love to do some traveling (nothing exotic, just around the U.S. would be fine). I am looking for someone who is mature and responsible with the same values as me, who can make me laugh and lend a shoulder when I need one. I love spontaneous acts of affection (flowers, a stop by the office just to say hi, surprise home-cooked dinner - you know, the simple things that truly tells someone you care). I am not looking for a rushed relationship. I am all about building a strong friendship before moving into anything serious. So, that's pretty much it in a nutshell. Have a great day :-). Also, I am kind of old fashion when it comes to who contacts who so I will just send you a wink. If you are interested then wink back or email me. As you know there are thousands of profiles on here so if you get to my profile before I get to yours, feel free to wink or shoot me an email.
