I am social but also value being alone. I am a generous host who loves nothing more than cooking large meals and sitting around a table laughing with my closest friends. I am loyal and fiercely protective of those I love, beginning with my two gorgeous daughters ages 5 and 8. I would much rather read a good book than frequent nightclubs. But I love to dance to live music. I have lived all over from South America to Europe and to the U.S. including New York,Chicago and Dallas. I gravitate toward people who are comfortable in foreign countries and exotic experiences with a willingness to explore. My last major trip was to Southeast Asia, which I loved and cannot wait to return. Other places on my holiday wish list are India,Costa Rica,Tibet, Kenya, Chile, Nepal and Mongolia. I am happiest either wandering the streets of a new city, listening to great music, or totally immersed in a good read or conversation. I come from a large family that constantly interrupts each other at dinner, finishes each other's sentences and loves the outdoors especially riding horses.
