I am a 45 year old Family and Consumer Sciences Educator with Montana State University Extension. I have 2 boys ages 17 and 13 and a wonderful husband of 21 years. Originally from Texas (lived there most of my life ) we now make our home in the beautiful mountains of Thompson Falls, Montana. Having grown up on a farm, I'm happy to be living once again in the country! We love our chickens and goats and hope to have cattle soon. My garden is one of my favorite past times.
When not working, I love to spend time with my family, bake, research recipes and sew.
I love to send and receive mail and have "penpaled" off and on since 8th grade. That being said, if you are interested in a private swap, PM me. ...it may work out depending on how busy things are or how much money I have at the time! Also, if your interests are similar to mine and you feel like we have a lot in common, I am open to new penpals.
I Love Lucy is my all time favorite. I also love Frasier, House Hunters, Food Network shows and The Office. To be honest though I rarely watch TV!
Green followed closely by soft pink. I also love gray and yellow together.
