I am a fun loving and happy person. I enjoy people and love my family. I have one married child and two grandchildren who I adore immensely. I have been divorced for many years and enjoy the freedoms afforded a single person, but there's nothing like being in love and loving someone in return. The warm caress of this individual, the kisses, the hugs and the great conversations are beyond words. You have to experience it to believe it and there's more. I have lived here since 1978 and now call Chicago home. I grew up in NYC and love the hostle and bustle of that great city but I enjoy coming home to the quieter mid west. I love to read, watch TV, cook, fine dining, casual dining, antiquing, fleas markets and such. Travel is a passion and have been to many wonderful and intriguing places. I spent a month in Spain, Portgual and Morraco and it was outstanding. I just recently returned from a carribbean cruise. Travel offers a great education and allows you to appreciate home and all those around you.
