Hi, I'm Cherie! I'm an active, self employed woman enjoying this stage of my life. I’m a friendly, easy going person who is involved in my church and my community. I'm always happy to lend a helping hand and really love meeting new people from all kinds of backgrounds. My social circle includes friends of all ages from many walks of life. I've raised my sons; now they are married with children of their own and I enjoy living a relaxed beach lifestyle. My favorite past time is hanging out on the beach with a good book or a good friend...sometimes both!
