A little about me...
As a widow of 10 years with a great deal of energy, I am looking to share new adventures with a life long companion.
Living in Northern IL allows a quick trip to the country to rejuvenate myself, and access to 2 great cities for wonderful cultural experiences.
Growing up on the north side of Chicago, makes me a Cubs fan.
I have a son in college (UNL) and my daughter has just finished high school. My greatest success has been leading them through the dark abyss created by the death of their father, I'm enjoying watching them strike out for independence and am proud of who they are.
I am fortunate to be able to support myself with my passion...creating art, and I love to give back by working with inner city children.
I have an incredible network of friends, but am looking to share the second half of my life with someone who can show compassion, likes to travel, explore new cultures and values family.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for someone who wants a long term relationship.My work takes me to wonderful locations it would be nice to have a traveling companion..but not necessary as long as there is an understanding I will need to go.
I am a high energy person, who is always looking for new adventures would like to meet someone who is game to learn new things with me. A sense of humor and the ability to laugh..even at yourself is a must.
I'd just like to add...
I work out 3 days a week (prefer to run on machines less stress on joints)but would spend a whole day walking in a city or country path.I am not a couch potato.. I rarely watch TV. I'm not fond of "chain restaurants" prefer out of the way ethnic places..BYOB places are always fun. I like movies but tend to save this event for winter months. I go to art openings about twice a month..but since I tend to know everyone there.. this may not be fun for you. I love live theater and music at smaller venues..
