I am a successful, cultured, energetic, fit woman who never stops learning through books and classes, and by osmosis and experience. I am blessed with two outstanding children – a son and daughter who are close yet independent superb company yet neither clinging nor parasitic. Friendships are important – my circle is large, long-lasting, and forever enriching me. I love mountains, adore beaches, know when to accelerate and when to apply the brakes. Looking for a partner who can toggle between serious and playful, for whom age is just a number, and whose accomplishments speak for themselves. Something you might not suspect - I love watching football and enjoy country music. I'm quite independent but would much prefer to share my life with someone who really gets me! Except for the picture of me with that crazy hat (which is there just for fun!) my pictures are current as noted.
