I'm originally from the country, but ended up in the suburbs with a job that I love. I love the entertainment options that our area offers, but I still hang my sheets out on the line. Dressing up to attend events at the Fox and the theatre are great in the winter, but my favorite thing to do in the summer is float on the water with a good book. I like nice cars, good coffee, and people who have goals and work towards achieving them.
Traveling to warm climates in the winter keeps me happy with the snow at home. I love the feel of the islands and the casual lifestyle that accompanies it. There is always the time to come back home, which makes a full life the best of blends.
I love to be surrounded by good conversation over a glass of champagne, but can be just as happy with a burger and a beer at a local pub. There aren't enough of those around here! Family values and a postive quality of life are important to me. Volunteering is such a great thing to do, and I'm sad that I don't have more time for it. I always end my day with a book, although sometimes I need to renew it at the library for longer than it should be taking to read it!
I love the family extensions that come with a positive relationship, and admire those who have lots of chairs around their dining room table. The best part of holidays are after the meal is over, and everyone is hanging around the table, sharing stories that have filled their life.
My idea of a perfect first date would be to meet over a glass of wine, and see where the conversation takes us. Maybe for a walk, or end up on the golf course. I could use the practice.
