I am a mother of 5 and grandmother (I prefer 'Nonnie') of 7 . My children are ages 36, 35, 33, 27 and 20. My grandkids are ages 9 months through 13. I have been happily married to my husband for 37 years.
I have lived in Weymouth for 35 years and in Massachusetts all my life. I live 10 houses from the beach which is wonderful in the summertime and breathtaking during the winter season. Snow and ice caps can create a beautiful picture. I love to shop. Always looking for a a good deal. My favorite clothing stores are Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor Loft and White/Black Market. My daughters usually stand in line waiting for me to clean out my closet each season so that they can get my hand-me-downs. My favorite grocery store is Trader Joes. Their products are all natural. I love eating lunch at Panara Bread. Their summer salad is delicious and they make a great cheddar/Broccoli soup mmmmmm! I worked full-time as a secretary at one of the local high schools. I am now retired and enjoy excercising and time with my kids and grandkids. I love Thomas Kinkade paintings. The light that is reflected on the paintings give you a sense of peacefulness. I own a painting called Seaside Hideaway that takes my breath away. My children gave me this painting for my birthday which makes it so special to me.
I practice Reiki (hands on healing) I am a 3rd degree master. I am a collector of angels. I love reading, swimming, and long walks along the seashore. I am a lover of shoes. I never have enough shoes in my closet. I enjoy making cd's of music. Country is my favorite music to listen to. I love any kind of country household items. My kitchen is very country while my living room is traditional. I enjoy taking pictures and downloading them onto cd's. for sharing with family and friends. I love shopping at Crate and Barrel , William Sinoma, Yankee Candle, Ann Taylor, and Pottery Barn. Above all, my most favorite thing to do is spending time with my grand-children.
I have many favorite colors such as seacoast colors (teal, sand, blue/green, periwinkle, red and sage.) My kitchen colors are sage/red/yellow, Living room colors are sage/ tomatoe red and gold, Bathroom colors are earth tones in the fall, red and white during the winter and beach tones (nautical) during the long hot summer months. Master bedroom colors are blue and yellow, first guest bedroom (I call this the princess room for my grand-daughters) is periwinkle blues/light purple and white and 2nd guest bedroom (angel room because it is my reading/meditation/reiki room colors are pale green/tan/soft white surrounded with angels, candels and seashells.
I love swap-bot. My daughter introduced me to swap-bot after I retired. I must thank her for that. Because of swap-bot, I have been in touch with many wonderful people within the USA and Internationaly. When I receive a heart from my assigned swap partner,I know that I placed a smile on their face which is reflected on me. To the many who have given me a heart, I thank you angel friend.
*********FYI: When I send out a swap I always send extra things that may also reflect on my partner's profile. None of my swaps packages are dollar store swaps therefore, If my partner receives extra special things, I think the least they can do is give me a heart as well as my five rating. I am never late with my swaps, matter of fact, I am usually up to one - two weeks early. If I don't receive a heart for an extra special package, then I would like to know why! I am a girl that is all about placing a smile on my partner's face and receiving a heart in return!

Bones, Survivor, NCIS, Ugly Betty, Medium, American Idol, All the CSI's, Without a Trace, Criminal Minds, Desperate Housewives, Opera Winfrey,
