I was a single parent...My son and daughter are great young adults, now it's my turn to enjoy life. I relocated to Florida from Illinois in '07..(moved back to Illinois July 2010)..I enjoy golf, baseball (St. Louis Cardinals and the Rays)...football...(University of Illinois and the Chicago Bears)...Cooking is heaven and therapeutic (Eating healthy is important).....the grill is used daily!!.....As is the big screen!!(man thing)...I'd really like to find someone who enjoys anything outside as well as a cold beer or a glass of wine while preparing a nice meal together...In other words a best friend, a buddy, a lover, a partner in crime, a confidant...etc....I have no trauma or drama in my life, and I will keep it that way.....I don't like to argue...such a waste of energy.....I would love to find someone "easy going", with a positive attitude, a great outlook on life and ready to have fun!!!
