About Me

I live in Titusville, Fl., a small town between Cocoa Beach and Daytona Beach. Titusville's kind of like nowheresville, but I love it here!

During the summer we spend a lot of time at the beach and not enough time kayaking in our beautiful lagoon.

I have a nine-year old son and a nineteen year-old daughter. I often joke that I'm going to change my son's middle name to "whatwasmymotherthinking", but he's a funny kid and we have a good time together.

I have a lot of interests and way too many hobbies!

I love to cook, but not to bake (that's my husband's thing and that's just fine with me.)

I love to travel, but can't stand cruises. I like going places and learning about the people, the area and especially the food of the region or country.

I can be obsessive about knitting but prefer to do it in solitude instead of groups - I guess you could say that I don't play well with others.

I'm crazy about color - big, bold, noisy color - and white. Lots of white to show off all those loud colors.

I'm a warm weather girl who believes the only place ice belongs is in my scotch and the only snow I want to see is in a paper cone drizzled with sticky red syrup.

My sense of humor can be a little odd, but I'm blessed with friends who must "get me" because my best pals have been my friends for 20+ years.

I believe that if you can count your friends on one hand you are truly blessed. I enjoy my many acquaintances, but I know the difference between an acquaintance and a friend.

So, there you have it: That's kind of me in a nutshell.

Favorite Music

There's generally classical music playing constantly in my kitchen.

Those who really know me, know that I know more words to more 70's songs than should be allowed for someone who can't carry a tune if her life depended on it!

My musical philosophy is that if you can't sing well, sing loud!

My iPod is bursting at the seams with podcasts. I love love love podcasts! I listen to knitting podcasts when I'm knitting, gardening podcasts when I'm gardening, organizational and life-coachy podcasts when I'm cleaning or decluttering.

Did I say how much I love podcasts? I fear my family is going to stage an intervention.

Favorite Television

Cooking shows are probably my favorites: Top Chef, Next Foodnetwork Star and anything that includes Anthony Bourdain. I adore Anthony Bourdain.

House is another favorite and I'm really enjoying Kathy Bate's new show, Harry's Law.

Can you keep a secret? I working my way through all six seasons of Nip/Tuck on Netflix, but shhhh - let's just keep that between us, okay?

Favorite Crafts

Any craft I'm doing at any given moment is my favorite.

Mailing preferences

However it's easiest to mail items to me and what ever makes my swap buddy the happiest makes me happy too!

Comment: Julia, I just don't believe you. No way those were your first ATCs!! And you wouldn't have believed me if you had seen the total geek out when I opened the envie: a Doctor Who LOTR mash up? Brilliant!! Thank you.
Response: I'm so glad you liked them! That Gollum still just cracks me up! I've been doing others, but nothing as good as those! And yes, those really really were my first!
