Smart and sexy, I'm a firecracker of a single mom with a wicked sense of humor that I try to use for good rather than evil. I'm generally easygoing and happy with my lot in life, and I often wear a goofy smile, as you can see from the pics posted (too bad for you, though, I did not post the one with the very striking "Happy New Year" tiara).
Being mom to 2 boys (ages 11 and 14) brings out my inner tomboy -- they keep me running, biking, playing basketball-- but I dress up nice and indeed tended to lean girlie-girl before these monsters colonized my home and my life. I was an actress/singer/dance r in a former life (performed as far away as Japan), but now I enjoy the daily drama of practicing law. I love music of all kinds, particularly jazz standards like Gershwin and Cole Porter (I also know most of the words to Schoolhouse Rock). You can get me to go to most movies if you buy the popcorn, and I'm a compulsive reader. I'm also an avid traveller --favorite trips include Tanzania, the South of Spain and Venice/Como/Milan -- and I think I could do better at Rick Steves' job (plus I'm cuter) but no one is offering it to me. I'm starting to cook again now that my newly-renovated kitchen is back online, and I'm an adventurous eater who will try anything once, though I would eat sushi every day if I could. I believe that ice cream should be its own food group.
As a general philosophy, I think life is good and it's not worth sweating the small stuff--total cliche, I know, but it still works for me when the small stuff starts to rankle. I come from a close family and am proud that my friendships reach back 3+ decades and span several continents. I am generally happy with myself and my life, but I always love to meet new people, and in the long term, in the end, I am looking for that someone special with whom to share life.
