Profile Edited 1/2/2020
We live on one of the remaining dairy farms in Northern Virginia. Between us we have 7 kids & 11 grandchildren. On our farm we have cows, chickens, ducks, bunnies, turkeys and cats! I love being a Gramma and it's the most important thing to me!
I love to read & dance! I’ve belly danced and gotten back into line dancing. Dancing & gardening are my hobbies. I love to play board games my favorites are Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, & any board games I can play with my grand-kids. I also love to read! Right now I'm reading mostly non-fiction.
I love nature & consider that my religion. I love being in the garden and getting my hands dirty. I love all my animals on the farm. They all have wonderful personalities. I have flower gardens & vegetable gardens. I tried raised beds & hale bale gardening this year.
I am very Patriotic and love my country & those protecting it! I grew up a Navy brat. So please do not ever send me anything that puts down the USA. I would never do that to you.
I mostly join postcard, deco & atc swaps. I try to be the best swapper I can be. But I have had some bumps along the way.
If you see any of my Decos floating around even if it's not full I would love to see it. I have never gotten one back yet.
