I am a fun loving, energetic, gardening foodie. I would describe myself as playful and adventuresome. I adore my grandchildren. I enjoy traveling, be it a weekend camping trip, sampling wine in Chile's Maipo Valley or hiking Machu Picchu. I love to snorkel, think zip lines are a rush, and on a dare jumped from a cliff side into a natural spring fed pool. I know my way around the kitchen and could whip you up a romantic dinner for two or a feast for thirty. I love Chicago - driving to the city is like going on vacation! I love the fine dining, theaters, galleries, street fairs, antique shops, and music - I never pass up an opportunity to dance. I relish a lazy morning - lingering over coffee or a game of Scrabble; or a quiet evening with a movie, good glass of wine or martini. I believe that honesty and friendship are the building blocks of a good relationship. I approach life with a belief that everything will work out for the best, then I do my best to make sure that happens. I look forward to meeting you!
