Middle-aged professional baby boomer, mom with husband and two teenagers, originally from Illinois but now living on the east coast USA, with broad interests in travel, history, gardening and permaculture, genealogy and immigrant history, democracy and human rights. Love to travel but slowing down these days. I love walkable cities with public transit, but also small towns with unique cultures. I'm a big reader so houses with lots of books are fine! I'm friendly but quiet and like lots of downtime to think, amble and take in the sights.
