About Me

My name is Casey. I am from a small town you'll never hear of, deep in the Appalachian mountains. I’ve been married 17 years to my beloved and we have three children together— a daughter and two sons.

I stay at home while my family goes off on their days to work and to school. I spend mine making our home a comfortable, relaxing place to be when they return. On the surface it may seem simple--clean bedsheets or an evening meal together at the table but my goal is to make my family feel considered and loved with these things. It's not lost on me that spending all day out in the world can be difficult and I feel so lucky to be here feathering the nest for them.I treasure being a homemaker.

I am a Christian, an avid reader, a good listener and an honest friend. I love to crochet, cook and fiddle around in my flower beds when it’s pretty out. I have kept a journal since I was big enough to write a sentence and I love penpaling. I am easy to talk to and down to earth.

I like me. You will, too.

I love, love, love to write letters. Sitting down at my kitchen table in the quiet of the evening to write a friend is so relaxing for me. My letters are always hand written and I try and always use pretty stationary.

My Swaps

Swapping is very dear to my heart. It is without a doubt my favorite hobby and I have to say I love it. I take swapping seriously. With that being said, if there is ever a time when a swap of mine didn't make it to you, it's not because I didn't send. Sometimes things really do get lost in the mail. All you have to do is message me and I will resend or make it up to you the best I can. A lost swap is disappointing for everyone and it never has to be that way. Atleast not with me. All you gotta do is let me know. Thanks for reading.

Pen Pal wanted

If you’ve made it this far in reading my profile, bless you!

I’m currently seeking a serious female pen pal. Just a good natured, honest person to get to know and hopefully start a long friendship with.

I’ve written a number of letters in pen pal swaps but they never continue beyond swap requirements.

Ideally, we’d share about life and family, maybe a recipe here or there, a small craft or just a postcard.

Drop me a line if you’re looking for a long term pen pal, too.

Postcard Swaps

I am always, always up for a postcard swap. I have recently started to collect postcard and I just can't have enough.

Private swaps or simply exchanging addresses to send a card--I'll always say yes.

Comment: Thank you for the postcard! I bet we got our vintage cards from the same place! My favorite seller there is on the second floor. It has bins of old receipts and postcard, pictures and books.
Response: I’ve gotten cards from there. I find most of my favorites in the bottom floor of the store where they are categorized by state, holidays and such. Glad you liked the card and thanks for the quick rating + heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for sharing your childhood with me! I remember the Furbies also but not from my childhood. I'm a little older than you. I remember the customers at Walmart were fighting over them. One lady hit me with her basket and knocked me down just to get one. I didn't care for them too much! LOL! I worked retail for 39 years and Black Friday never was my favorite day. Have a Happy Easter and stay safe! Hugs, Diane

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful notecard and the tuck-ins. You are very brave to go traveling on your own. I could have done it when I was younger, but I don't know if I could do it now. Maybe I could. But I congratulate you on doing it.
