I am usually quiet until I get to know you. Once I feel comfortable with a new person &/or new surroundings, I like to talk and laugh. I smile most of the time, and can fine something funny about most situations. I don't believe in making fun of people or hurting anyone's feelings, and I don't like being with people who do. Although, I have been blessed with a child of my own, I am very close to my family and friends. I take an active interest in my child's schooling, as well as, her other studies and interests. I enjoy going just about anywhere. I’m happy going to a local festival or taking a day trip. I hope to find someone special with whom to travel with. I like storytelling and believe that everyone has a story—which is why I like photography and genealogy. I think of my digital camera as a diary—snapshots of a day in a life. Taking pictures makes every event an adventure for me! I like going to museums, music and cultural festivals. There are always festivals or exhibits close to where I live.
