About Me


I think I am a pacifist, an idealist (versus realist), peace loving, tree hugging, spiritually grounded middle aged woman.

I am a happy mother of 5 (blended family) with 9 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. Crazy! I'm 61 years old and I love life. I've been a scrapbooker, a stamper, a knitter and NOW .. a swapper!

My second husband is a retired Methodist pastor. Faith is pretty important to us. organized religion has been hurtful to many people. I prefer a faith that encompasses all walks of life, all faiths, all people. I am criticized for that. but that's my truth.

Favorite Music

Rock & Roll! Actually Im pretty diverse in my music listening but I do not like old fashioned country, nor do I like opera. I don't like rap.

A kid of the 60s and 70s, I like The Eagles, America, Dan Fogelberg, Journey, Styx, Aerosmith, Grand Funk Railroad, YES, Steppenwolf .. to name a few.
Todd Rundgren, Eric Clapton, Bruno Mars, Adele, Amy Winehouse, Maroon 5, seriously into most all types of music.

Favorite Movies

Man in the Moon with Sam Waterston. Remember the Titans Titanic Sound of Music Westside Story Romeo & Juliet (the one from the 70s) A Star Is Born Ice Castles

  • not many movies I've met that I don't like.

Favorite Television

This Is Us

Modern Family

Genius on PBS

Handmaid's Tale (currently on Hulu)

Comment: Hello Anne, Thank you so much for the lovely Pocket Letter you made with the theme of Thanksgiving. Each pocket clearly expresses the theme of Thanksgiving. I love the colors and papers you used both on front and back. I also love the phrases you used as they speak well of the holiday. Thank you also for the extras you sent along with the Pocket Letter.

Comment: I love the little patchworky house ATC, Anne. The weather is usually pretty nice here in the fall. I am always grateful for the cooler temps. This week has been gross, though. It feels more like my home state of Massachusetts than the south!

Wow, It is something really special when I receive a new coffee sleeve from a new coffee place. My first one from a hospital! It was so thoughtful of you to send it - a very nice thing to do! Look for something in the mail from me.
