I'm a homebody who loves to travel, see new sites, have interesting experiences, meet interesting people, engage in meaningful conversation, love, laugh, and also have some alone time. I'm conventional in some ways and unconventional in others. I'm sensitive, nurturing, and independent. I'm devoted to my family and also have close friends. I've lived in Italy and return every few years to visit friends, speak Italian, and spend time in my favorite city: Venice. This past summer I was lucky to live one of my dreams, which was taking cooking lessons in Italian in Venice.
