My Favorite Music

I still love and listen to the same artists and groups that I did when I was young. They include: Rod Stewart (saw him 4 times!), Elton John, Stevie Nicks, Bruce Springsteen, Cheap Trick, John Fogerty, Bob Seger, Bryan Adams, Josh Groban, Abba, Neil Diamond and so many more. Plus I am and always will be an Osmond fan!

Favorite Books

Reading is my passion! I adore it and would have my nose stuck in a book all day long if I could! Not only do I enjoy reading the old fashioned way...I also love listening to audio books. My favorite authors are Nora Roberts, J.D Robb, James Patterson, Laura Childs, Linda Castillo, Stephen King, John Saul, C.J. Box, J.A. Jance, Patricia Cornwell and much more. Some of my very favorite books are the "cozy" mysteries! I'm still a Nancy Drew and Hardy boys fan at heart as well. I also love reading biographies. I have hundreds of physical books and just as many on my Kindle Fire!

Favorite Television

I'm not a huge TV fan but I am loyal to some shows. I have been watching "General Hospital" for over 40 years now.and have been fortunate to meet many of the cast members. I also really enjoy The Good Doctor, Bob Hearts Abishola, FBI, Big Sky, The Connors, The Rookie, Grey’s Anatomy, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Chicago Med, Fire Country and Autopsy. I still love watching the older shows as well and some of my favorites are: The Golden Girls, Bewitched, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Murder She Wrote, Charmed, Everybody Loves Raymond, Ghost Whisperer, The Bob Newhart Show,Friends, Emergency and Dark Shadows.

Pen Palling

I have been pen palling for over 40 years and am always happy to meet and begin writing to ladies who enjoy this hobby as much as I do. I have many pen friends in the US and in other countries as well. I also love to swap friendship books, friendship sheets, bags, stationery, stickers, notecards and journals. I love anything to do with writing and words!


I am also a huge Halloween fan! My fascination began when I was just a kid and loved dressing up in costume and going through the neighborhood with my friends "trick or treating." When I grew up and got married, two of my kids were born in October...one on the 17th and another on the 30th...just 27 minutes away from midnight. When they were growing up we always had Halloween themed birthday parties! When my daughter turned 16 we had a "Sweet 16, Halloween" party for her and it was amazing! We decorate our house and yard with everything Halloween and we usually start in mid-August! I love the stickers, the stationery, the decorations, smells, colors and mood of Halloween and Autumn

Things I Like

Any kind of stationery - the old fashioned letter kind or computer stationery of any kind, lined stationery

Postcards of scenic things, especially state map post cards


Candles - spicy kind, not flowery

Anything Autumn or Halloween themed

Kawaii items

Souveniers from your state in exchange for something from my state.

Journals...any size, shape, color, texture, lined

Pretty or cute blank notecards

Anything dealing with Snoopy, Thomas Kinkade, snowmen, witches, books, Black Labs or Mary Engelbreit

Cat figurines or cat related items

Scrapbook supplies

Snowmen items


Disney items, especially those pertaining to Beauty and the Beast

Things I Dislike

Kiddie type stickers or stationery


Not a fan of washi tape


stamped images or small scraps of paper

pages from books, old movie or raffle tickets or other items used for junk journals. I don't do them so I don't really have a need for these items

My Hobbies

Pen Palling Reading Cooking Crocheting Journaling Creative writing Jigsaw puzzles - especially the Disney and lighthouse themed ones by Thomas Kinkade Yoga Diamond Art Postcards

My Pets

I am a huge animal lover and our family has been blessed with so many special ones through the years. Right now, we have a 5 year old male Black Lab named Bear, who has my heart! We also have three cats who allow us to live alongside them. There's Jasmine, who will turn 17 this year, Chip, who is almost 9 and Autumn, who is 2. They are our furry kids and are loved so much!

About Me

I am a 65 year old Pennsylvania native. I worked as a financial secretary for over twenty years before taking an early retirement at the age of 62. I still work part time as a bookkeeper/person who goes where needed in my niece's Italian restaurant, alongside my husband, Bill. He is 71, retired and we will be married for 42 years this April. We have three adult children and three beautiful little grandchildren who have captured my heart the moment I laid eyes on them! I am pretty healthy and active except for a profound hearing loss, for which I wear double hearing aids.
