A little about me...
Work keeps me busy, with some international and adventure travel mixed in periodically. I maintain a good work-life balance and enjoy mentoring younger people. I miss and keep in touch regularly with my children, who live in Alaska, Washington and California and visit with my extended family regularly. Maintaining my home and yard in Bellevue and visiting my family help round out my life... but it would be better to enjoy it with someone special who shares similar interests.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am interested in a permanent, long term committed relationship to share the next stage of my life. My goal is to find someone close to my own age who gives off positive energy, has a good sense of humor, enjoys the outdoors, can hold up an intelligent conversation, is financially secure, and will be there to love and be a trusted partner...Someone with whom to explore the future. Someone who would like to travel, who likes to laugh and enjoy life, who can be romantic...who cares about others.
I'd just like to add...
I love to cook, experience new and unusual foods, try new wines and travel. I love to curl up with a good book, take long walks, and spend time with good friends. A major force in my life is my family and extended family. I have had a wonderful long term marriage from which I have three grown children. I have been divorced long enough to know what I want and have grown from the experience and learned to be a better communicator. My extended family is also very important to me. I am the second oldest of four siblings all living in the Mid-West with nephews and nieces and great nephew and nieces..
I have enjoyed a long-term career in education in Bellevue, WA, Annandale, VA and the western suburbs of Chicago. Outside of family and work I have many different interests including music, cooking, adventure travel, theatre, dance and crafting (knitting and crocheting in particular). I don't know how to have a long distance relationship, so I am not very open to that possibility. I prefer meeting people face-to-face.

My Top Interests:
Family and Friends
Family and friends provide the springboard from which I explore, the strength and reason to continue to grow.
There is so much to see in this world....how could it not be of interest?
Cooking relaxes me...I enjoy the creative process as well as sharing the results with those I love.
