I consider myself kind, compassionate and affectionate to those I love. I have a gentle and altruistic spirit who is creative at heart. I am also very quirky in a fun way. I am easy going and I like to enjoy life for even the smallest things that come my way. Family and good friends are important to me. I have many interests such as the arts, museums and traveling. Have lived in other countries, so am very comfortable on either side of the ocean. I am at peace with myself and supremely blessed. I was raised in the Midwest and am very down to earth. I will stop to pet a cat or dog while out on walks and if I see an animal in need, I will scoop it up and help it or leave food out so it won't starve. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle along with eating healthy is important to me. I enjoy cooking and love to cook ethnic dishes from around the world.
