About Me

I'm a quiet, peaceful person who enjoys nature, reading, friends and family and cooking.

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

I love road trips! I'm trying to visit all 50 states, so I'm always trying to work a new state into my vacations. I like to collect nature postcards from every state I visit.

I enjoy coffee shops of all kinds, reading, visiting art museums, volunteering, used-book stores, cooking, baking, crafts, tarot goods, gardening, spending time in nature 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.

Favorite crystals: amethyst, rose quartz, aquamarine, fluorite, lapis, citrine and rhodonite. Really, I love them all.

Some favorite things: coffee, milk or dark chocolate, peanut butter, wine, purple, dragonflies, silver jewelry, quality essential oils, tarot cards, flowers, shells, nature postcards, sunshine, road trips, washi tape, crystals & healing stones and books.

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

I've recently started drinking hot tea. I find it's very calming. I've liked most teas I've tried so far, but not a big fan of jasmine or any floral. Citrus and cinnamon are my favorites.

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.

Food & Drink

Favorite Foods: Milk and dark chocolate; Candy with nuts is okay; Peanut butter anything

Drinks: Coffee; Black or green tea; wine

Dislikes: Beef and pork (including bacon); Teas flavors jasmine or anything flowery; Chocolate with fruit in it

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
