Life is what happens when you're making other plans, so I'm trying to live in the moment as much as possible. I own my own business -for the past 15 years- in a sustainable Ag food business. The environment, food and how it is grown is very important to me. I exercise regularly alternating between dance, Bikram yoga, running, hiking, biking and once in a while the gym - although I am much more of an outdoors person, and prefer that to being in a stuffy gym. I am a beekeeper -a new passion of mine- and I have two awesome kids that I am preparing for leaving the nest. My first child is off to college next year. I'm an extrovert, mostly, but very introspective. I have an incredible group of friends that I socialize with often; sometimes in small groups and sometimes in rather large gatherings. Those gatherings always include great food, good conversation, wonderful people, live music and dancing... and usually sleep-over's because we all travel to be together. I have a full drum kit that I need to dust off and start playing! I am signing up for singing lessons. I love all types of music, but I want to sing Torch Songs. I practice gratitude daily for all that life has to offer and all that I have been blessed with.
I was a little disappointed that POF only gave you one choice for "Intent". While I would be pleased to find a great partner for a relationship, I'm not convinced that I will necessarily find that through this venue (and I'm not convinced I won't either) but I think dating is a good starting point. I'm also not into casual intimate encounters.

It depends on my mood, the day, the weather, timing, but I am up for many things. Some ideas would be a hike, meeting over a drink, be it coffee or****ails. I'll leave it at that for now.
