About Me

I'm day dreamer, star gazer, well wisher, and free with whimsy.

I'm currently in a life transition that's exciting and challenging. My hubby and I moved from NY to KY where I stepped into a new vocation as Assistant Pastor. Although I have a heart for special needs folks who I worked with for 9 years, I've taken a mental break from casework. I'm a huge advocate for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and believe that all things should be accessible for all people. I have a side job at a local craft store where I get "all the deals!" I have a 13 years old tortoiseshell cat named Natalie, aka, Natty Cat or Old Lady Cat. She's the fuzz!

Most of all, I'm completely, unapologetic-ally ME!

It's not uncommon for me to spontaneously take off and drive. I love day trips to cutesy little villages, markets, and state parks. Hiking and exploring waterfalls is my new craze. I crave the unique and different life brings.

I enjoy spring showers, summer nights, autumn bonfires, and moonlit snowfall. I find comfort in nature, oddities, and the hilarity life brings. I love making the old new again!

I fancy good coffee, crunchy bagels, hot tea, dark chocolate, and extra sharp cheese.

I enjoy country, vintage, and retro styles. I love pin-up hair, bright red lip stick, and heels. Okay, in reality, comfortable flats. LOL

Comment: You're swap arrived late but I'm not sure if you sent it to late or if it got delayed because the post office wasn't able to read your handwriting (they had to reasearch the address). So I'll give you 5 stars anyways. Thank you for the stickers!
Response: I'm glad you finally received it. I had to send it the following Monday as the post office window closed by the time I arrived on Saturday. I apologizing for not emailing you. I'm sorry they couldn't read the writing. I usually write clearly as I'm paranoid my letters won't get there. I hope you liked the teas and glad you enjoy the stickers. Thank you for the kind 5. :)

Psalm 145 was for Profile Bible verse #5

Fabriqueen on Jun 27, 2018:

Psalm 145:3-6 Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts. They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty--and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They tell of the power of your awesome works -- and I will proclaim your great deeds.

We spent today in the mountains of North Carolina. I was in awe of the beauty of God's creation!

Hugs, Diane

Profile Bible Verse #5

2 Chronicles 10:16

16 When all Israel saw that the king refused to listen to them, they answered the king: “What share do we have in David, what part in Jesse’s son? To your tents, Israel! Look after your own house, David!” So all the Israelites went home.

Hello! I hope this verse for the Profile Bible Verse #12 Swap speaks to you today!

"She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future."

Proverbs 31:25

Hi I'm your partner for the Profile Swap #10 I'm not sure what happened as I did this on the weekend but none of them saved! I'm so sorry! Here is the quote I picked for this swap!

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” ― Brené Brown

jaimierandolph on Feb 27, 2018:

Profile Quote #11

“No woman wants to be in submission to a man who isn't in submission to God!” ― T.D. Jakes

bluecrayons on Feb 27, 2018:

Profile quote 11

Laughing is one of the best exercises, it's like running inside your mind. You can do it almost anywhere and it's even better with a friend.

Hugsie86 on Feb 27, 2018:

Profile Quote #11

It might take a year, it might take a day, but what's meant to be will always find its way. (Unknown)

Have a nice day!
