I'm a fresh air nut, love being outside, practical and down-to-earth (I'd rather have a trip than a diamond) . My little Schnauzer needs a playmate, too, and would love to find a place where she can run full-out off her leash, since we haven't found any dog parks here. Haven't settled into a home church yet; the mega with great music is too far to get involved & the closer traditionals are friendly but quiet. I like the look of a country cottage, to work in flower beds and bring fresh flowers inside. I LOVE flowers and am amazed by how God is into details. I was taught to be independent, but now I find myself alone and needing a friend.
