I am a smart and decent woman with an easy smile who is happy and grateful to start the second act of my life in a graceful manner. No one would ever consider me to be a high maintenance kind of gal. I am compassionate and passionate about the things and people who matter most in my life. My interests in art, music, gardening, home renovation and food cast a deep and wide net. I've been know to wield a power tool from time to time as well as a paintbrush. Ive been told I am a combo of leather and lace, soft serve on a hot summer day and a crisp Merlot. My bookshelves are eclectic but i don't keep up with best sellers. I am always looking for the creative solutions in life.
