In A Nutshell
I am so many contradictions like quiet, loud, smart, silly, control freak, free-spirited, country girl, city girl. Love to decorate, cook, read, entertain. I love writing and history. I love most kinds of music - everything from classical to rock. The radio or Pandora is usually on where ever I am.
I love football and baseball! Not good at playing them, but love to watch them. Sunday afternoon at a baseball game is awesome. I miss living in KC and being able to go to the Royals & Chiefs games whenever they were in town. Usually watch the Huskers and host football parties but haven't been to a game in years. I am a pretty good bowler & like golf but am very out of practice.
I am a mom of 3 great kids, 2 of whom are out of the house and just about on their own.
I was raised in the country and have lived in the city so I am comfortable in both settings. I don't mind dressing up to go out on the town or going casual to stay at home and grill and entertain friends. I don't mind staying in on a cold night cuddled up with a good glass of wine and a good movie. Not into the bar scene much but like going out for drinks and dinner and maybe dancing or to live concerts and sporting events too.
The One I Am Looking For
I am looking for someone who is comfortable in their own skin and is open to new places and new experiences and who wants to have fun and enjoy the experience of the journey. Someone who isn't worried about what others think and who doesn't mind holding my hand in public. Someone who isn't afraid to show affection and open up and share even the smallest things.
I'd Just Like to Add
I was always considered the 'quiet, smart' girl when I was younger - guess those who said that didn't know the real me - lol. I enjoy my quiet time, but love to be out and about even if it is as an interested observer. I am not the life of the party, but if you give me a chance, I like to have fun. I love holidays. I love to dress up on Halloween (in case you couldn't tell from the pic) and I love having trick or treaters. I love decorating for all holidays but especially Christmas. Most people don't like change, but I prefer that every day not be the same as the one before. I learned a long time ago that life is short and shouldn't be taken for granted.

My Top Interests:
Crafts and Creating
I had a wedding decorating business for 12 years and created a lot of decorations out of ordinary items. I can look at something and see the possibilities.
I love to cook and try new recipes. I also did catering along with the wedding decorating so I can cook for 2-300.
I like to explore new places and meet different kinds of people. I have a lot of places on my list I'd like to visit.
