Have you ever watched the sunset from a boat off the coast of Sardinia? I haven't, but I really want to, preferably with someone who savors exploring other cultures and good food and incredible sunsets. Have you ever stood in line at the baggage claim office at Dulles airport trying to find your lost luggage. Done that. It's not always Mediterranean sunsets, and I"m looking to share the big moments the small moments and the in-between moments with warmth and laugher. I'm an energetic and spirited woman who cherishes family and friends.. My journey from Oklahoma to Washington by way of New York, Chicago and Paris has come with some great adventures - and lost baggage. My interest in policy and politics brought me back to Washington to work on Capitol Hill before wiorking at a law firm in DC. I'm still a Midwesterner at heart who loves to explore the world and meet new people. Yet, comfort food, college football, and a lack of pretense make me feel like I'm home. So, I'm a multifaceted Midwesterner, a lawyer with an artistic side, who thrives on challenges mixed with humor. I can get into heated discussions about politics, but need a visit to a museum, a beach vacation or at least a good workout to keep a sense of calm. I have a healthy appreciation of the absurd, and give myself much material for laughter. I"m a mom of a beautiful little girl, who is the light of my life. A great smile, a sharp wit, an active intellect, shared values, and a sense of adventure and optimism tethered by a strong character have become even more attractive to me over time. I'm looking forward to sharing the best adventures ahead.
