I am a down to earth, even tempered, sincere, loyal, honest and good hearted person. Home and family are very important to me. I love children, and I would like to have one of my own. I am also very open to someone who has children already. I am a true believer and practicer of the golden rule. I am considerate of others and will go to great lengths for someone I care about. I am easy going, playful, and romantic. I love to travel, attend plays, listening to live music and movies. I also enjoy cooking, particularly baking, and experimenting with new recipes. I have family in Chicago and I visit 5 or 6 times a year. I collect hippos, but this is not a reflection on my appearance! I am 5'2" and 106 lbs.
