Musician and aspiring cake decorator
How about we… how about we have a glass of wine at a restaurant overlooking the water near golden gardens then walk along the beach holding hands.
An awesome place I've visited:
I have two favorite places I've been. The first is New Orleans where we ate gumbo, listened to music and visited an old, beautiful plantation. The second was my yearly visit to the Freedom Trail in Boston with Paul Revere's house and the Old North Church.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat or Singing in the Rain
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
I grew up in Texas (not really a cowgirl) going to the piano bars with my parents and learning all the classic American Songbook music. Hung around the hippies in Boulder. Then moved to Seattle where I became a mini van driving mom. Now I'm a combination of cowgirl, hippie, mini van. Separated a year and a half after a 20 year marriage, finishing the divorce paper work. I have a sweet 13 year old daughter that lives with me and a crazy 16 year old who lives in California with his dad. Now I am changing careers and moving into a Baking and Patisserie Program! So I can make you scones and cakes.
My first concert / My dream concert:
I saw Elvis twice. No int his best years, but I was able to say I saw him.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Well, I used to juggle and ride a unicycle. That doesn't come in handy anymore. It's not obscure, but I seem to study seismology and earthquakes for the fun of it.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
walk me to my car and actually call if they say they will. Pretty low bar for now I guess.
For me, a first date no-no is:
complaining about an ex
I secretly want to be:
A geologist and Park Ranger, and author and motivational speaker, a florist and cake decorator, and a Broadway Star.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
The boring responsible answer: pay off debts, set aside money for kids, give to favorite charities. Then I'd set up my own foundation. Probably to support women getting out of abusive relationships - legal advice, low-interest loans. OR advocacy for mentally ill. Ok, I'd have to have some fun, so I'd get an RV and travel the United States visiting every National Park - starting with Yellowstone!
