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

These are the things I love...

A: Autumn, my favorite season; address labels

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

C: Christmas, my favorite holiday; Crochet; Cheerful anything; My Cricut machine; 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)

P: Postcards; Postcrossing; Penpals!; Pocket Letters

Q: Quiet Time

R: Reading; Running, although I haven't done it in a while

S: Sewing; Stationery; Stickers; Sparkles; Starbucks, especially the holiday flavors; Soap, handmade or bought...I love having nice hand soap at my sink; SuperBetter by Jane McGonigal (if you've read this and/or play, I'd love to hear how you are using this book.)
