i have a good sense of humor, i enjoy hockey and football, my kids are all active in sports, and i'm crazy about them. i love animals, especially dogs and cats. i believe in honesty, kindness, trust, tradition, and i hate bigots of any kind. i can be shy in new situations, but i love being around people. i work hard. i love my garden and have an art background. i love the beach, and crave it in the winter, actually, make that year round! i am just as happy sitting outside in my gazebo with candles, drinks and good conversation as i am out at any restaurant. i am told i look a lot younger than i am and even though i don't exercise alot, i'm always active. i love to read, and love to be around intelligent informed people for good conversation. there are so many sides to my personality and hope to find someone to explore them with me.
