To describe myself...oh what a difficult thing to do. Hmmm...complex, upbeat, big-hearted, witty, warm, caring, and shy. Shy...yes, but once you get to know me, I'm a handful! I am soft and sweet and tender to those I bring into my life, but I can instantly go hard and tough as nails if the situation calls for it. I've been described as bohemian, eclectic, sanguine and mercurial, but am down-to-earth, have traditional values, love very deeply, and am a loyal friend. I prefer wildflowers to roses, do-it-yourself to paying someone else to do it, and vintage and eclectic to new. I love full moons, summer afternoon thunderstorms, winter snow storms, home-grown tomato sandwiches and home-cooked meals...and I should have been a gypsy.
