I am an outgoing, smart, fun-loving woman. Family and friends are of the utmost importance as I savor the time I spend with my children and grandchildren. I love to be playful, not only with my family, but with that special someone, first and foremost. Who's to say we cannot be kids on occasion? I enjoy travel and am game for a last minute trip. Additionally, I am a sports' enthusiast and enjoy going to hockey, football, basketball and baseball games - just name the venue, and you can count on me to be at the arena/stadium with you. My passion is writing as I hold a PhD in literature. Presently I am working on a novel as well as a couple of childrens' books. I also find that it is important to give back. As such, I am involved in several charities and am working on instituting a new one. I find that life should be joyful and happy; I see my glass as full - not just half-full. What I am looking for is that special someone, a worldly manly-man with whom chivalry is not lost. Call me a diehard romantic who is looking for her "prince." Is that someone you?
