I am an outgoing person who loves to spend time with family and friends. I adore my neices and nephews. I have a deep appreciation for life and how fragile and short it can be. I beleive that challenges that we face makes us stronger and more caring people. In addition, it has helped me put things in perspective and "not sweat the small stuff". One of the greatest lessons i have learned is to laugh at myself.
I enjoy going out for coffee or dinner or to the theater, the opera, the symphony or other events but can be just as content spending an evening at home with friends sharing a great meal and good conversation. I enjoy music iof all types from classical to country to rock. I am an avid reader and love curling up with a good book in front of a fire, in a hammock on a fall afternoon or sitting on a deck chair overlooking the ocean. I love to be in the mountains or by the ocean. I like to watch most sports (football, golf, baseball) but I am partial to college basketball.
I am looking for a companion and friend who enjoys the same while introducing me to new and exciting things. I hope that we will share the same basic outlook on family, friends and faith as these are the foundation to a long and lasting relationship. Giving back to church, community and family is very important to me. I find volunteering to be very fulfilling as well as a great way to meet new people.
