I've learned to listen to my instincts and they’re usually ‘spot-on’. Be calm, be true but be BOLD. I studied Art /Design and worked in the field for many years so have an appreciation for true beauty in the world whether it be a piece of art, architecture, a really cool toaster.......or you!. I have an appreciation for the sincerest of gestures. I can honestly say without equivocation that I am the one you’ll want in your foxhole. I am the one you’ll want to have your family meet. I am the one you’ll want to introduce to your friends. I am loyal to a fault. I am a great listener. I love intelligent conversation. I am monogamous by nature. I am sweet and loving (not only because I LOVE to bake). I have a great sense of humor and hope you do too. Romance, there’s a lot of it waiting to be shared. I am the one you’ll feel safe and protected with. I am a giver in many ways--volunteer at my daughter’s school when time allows, regularly donate Platelets and Plasma,… hold doors open, to name a few. My sisters are my cheerleaders. I have a GREAT close-knit supportive family. Looking forward to including someone special. I don’t get the whole Zodiac-sign thing (but I’m an Aries for whatever that means).
