in her own words...

First, for the speed readers here, yes, I look like my photos. I'm told a lot that I look 15 years younger than I am; I think it's more like 12 :-) I thank my mom for the genes. Now for the substantive overview: I'm looking for a man whose intelligence, sense of humor, kindness, compassion, honesty, and vast capacity for both empathy and silliness match mine. I am genuine and generous and so are you. Please love animals and not be able to imagine a home without at least one. If you’re allergic to cats, I’m sorry: there’s no hope for you here.

I’m one for meeting soon after writing to introduce ourselves, liking the photos, and establishing that we have both common ground and mutual interest. What else? I love reading and conversation and hiking and great food and too many passions to list, indoors and out. I'm not a major sportswoman but I love cross-country skiing and kayaking, though I'm
