About Me

Hello, my name is Kathy. I am a 47 year old married mother of two teens. We have a French bulldog named Chuck, and two Gecko lizards...Janet and Lizzie. I enjoy my wonderful family!

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I also work outside the home as an accountant for a large fitness club.

My focus word for 2018 is COURAGE. I've had some difficult family health issues over the past year and a half, and it has been really hard for me to deal with them. This year, in 2018, my goal is to have the courage to accept and deal with these circumstances the best that I can. I need to begin the healing process and set a good example for my daughters.

Me, A-Z

B: Bullet Journaling; Brocante Home, a favorite blog; Bookmarks; the Beach;

C: Christmas, my favorite holiday; Crochet; Cheerful anything; Candles; chocolate (dark is my favorite, but I love it all); the word "COURAGE" (I would like anything with the word on it, as this is my focus word for 2018)

SusanSpooky rated for #12: Mini Stocking of Goodies on Jan 25, 2018
Comment: Hello, I'm sorry for rating late here. This holiday season was a bit rough for me so I ended up rating late on a few swaps. I wanted you to know I really enjoyed the swap you sent. The stocking was very lovely and we ended up using it as our cat's stocking for Christmas. The goodies were great, and it was overall a wonderful swap. I really hope you had a joyful Christmas.
Comment: Thank you for your Reading Log! Sounds like you read some really interesting books! Happy Reading! :)

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card! I hope you were able to accomplish what you set out to do this Christmas season with Advent and the Liturgical calendar. We follow a very special advent book each year that we got when our children were young. It helps us focus on the what's really important during Christmastime. Thank you also for the cute polar bear letter set...I love it! Happy New Year!

Comment: I got the journal. It is going to take some time to read through it but I skimmed through it and it looks amazing. You have a very full and busy life, something I use to have before starting my own business. Busy yes but all I do is related to my business or sleeping....Hopefully in the new year there will be more time for other things. Thank you for what is going to be an amazing read.
