I am originally from Canada but consider California my home, having been here for the past 15 years. I try to spend as much time as I can with my kids-every moment is precious. I am learning to enjoy more the simple things in life as I get older-good friends, good conversation and fine wine(especially a great red Zinfandel or a New Zealand Savignon Blanc!). Seeing the good in people and most situations is not always easy but makes life much more enjoyable. It makes me an optimist. I am looking to meet someone who is engaging, who doesn't take themselves too seriously,who is comfortable with themselves and others, who would love to meet and become friends with my friends(as I would with yours), and whom is warm and giving. A friendly face and a lot of smiles is a great thing!
