A little about me...
I have good friends, attend church most Sunday mornings, enjoy wine tasting, good art, adore movies and reading. I worked too hard and was too serious when I was younger. Now I just want to have fun and enjoy the small miracles that life has to offer. I like to laugh every day and friends say I have a great sense of humor. I have owned my own business for 20 years and also work part-time helping others. I have four adult children, six grandchildren and three great grandchildren, none of whom are living in the area. I am independent and can be a bit of a recluse, though I also love people and visiting with friends. I have a tiny, three-acre farm with animals (dogs, goats, chickens and a rabbit). I lived in Florence, OR before moving to McMinnville and was born in Southern California. I have traveled quite a bit and have plans to go to China this winter and to SoCal to see the grandchildren. Will probably go to my property in Arizona to spend time with my best friend from college. I like to play Scrabble!
About the one I'm looking for...
I would like to find someone with which to have a deep and spiritual connection. I am really more interested in friendship than in "finding a partner." I just want someone who is kind, has a good sense of humor, is funny and fun to do things with, plus likes to discuss things they read and movies they see, etc. I want someone who respects themselves and is self-confident, honest, ethical and happy with themselves and their current life. I want someone who isn't arrogant or closed-minded and recognizes a need for continual emotional and spiritual growth. I want a man who wants to help others and cares for the environment and all of nature.
I'd just like to add...
I have lived a varied & exciting life and don't need to prove anything. I'm not lonely or unhappy. I actually like myself and my current lifestyle. I know that some things are unacceptable to me, such as, smoking, excessive drinking and using drugs. I really don't like partying and bars; that whole lifestyle. Life is short and I want to enjoy the remainder of it!!! I believe in laughing every day!

My Top Interests:
Religion and Spirituality
My faith is very important to me. I do my best to be "the hands and feet of Jesus." I am NOT typically "religious," but I am spiritual and love God. I attend church most Sundays.
I have family in California, Kansas and China. I love to visit them and Hawaii is my "spiritual home." Plus, I spent a year in Vienna and I love Scotland and Africa! I have been to all but 8 states in the U.S.
Shopping and Collecting
My grandmother lived to be 103 1/2 and I loved going through her things. I still love antiques and I'm thrifty so I like shopping at thrift stores! Plus I like to sell vintage things online.
