About Me

I am a fun-loving traveler who appreciates good friends, food and cocktails.

I'm spiritual and down-to-earth - just trying to be the good in an uncertain world.

I'm attempting to see all 50 states in the next two years. My favorites so far are New Mexico, Arizona and Alabama. I like to collect nature postcards from every state.

I enjoy eating in local restaurants, coffee shops of all kinds, visiting art museums, volunteering and visiting beaches.

I have many hobbies. I enjoy reading, paper crafts, painting, making jewelry, making rosaries, gardening, writing in my journal and baking treats.

I also practice yoga, meditation and Reiki.

I love pen-pals! I enjoy the long letters and postcards, especially to get ideas for future road trips!

Some favorite things: coffee, good chocolate, peanut butter, wine, purple, dragonflies, silver jewelry, quality essential oils, tarot cards, flowers, shells, nature postcards, sunshine, road trips and books.

I'm attempting to be healthier and still enjoy my favorite foods. I walk daily along the river. I love nature.

I like to collect: friends, books, washi tape, tarot/oracle cards, crystals, sun/moon images and vintage religious jewelry.

I'm a big fan of the Blessed Mother and Mother Earth!

One special note: While I'm not vegetarian or vegan, I don't eat pork or beef. Just a personal preference. Pigs are my friends. I want a pet pig someday.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy paper crafts, making jewelry and rosaries, painting at wine and canvas events, paper crafts using vintage/used postage stamps and/or washi tape and drawing/coloring yantras and mandalas.


I love books! I love reading, collecting and sharing all types of books. I'm a big fan of used-book stores and Paperbackswap. I like to collect old cookbooks, spiritual books (everything from Catholic saints to yoga) and art books.

Favorite Music

Music makes everything so amazing! I love to set a sound track to my day or any activity I'm involved with at the moment.

Some of my favorite genres:

Pop - some current top 40's, but always will love the 80's best!

Classic Rock - Everything from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Motley Crue

Classical - Mozart, Beethoven and Baroque

World - Kirtan and Liquid Mind

Oldies - I love Elvis and music from the 50's and 60's
