Update: I am currently going through a work up for an autoimmune disease and have not been feeling well. It’s pretty overwhelming. Please be patient with me. I try to check my messages twice a week and send most things on Saturday if possible. I still work full time so I’ve had to cut back on swaps which makes me sad but I have to. Please just contact me if there is anything you feel isn’t right or doesn’t come. Thank you and I appreciate your understanding ❤️
I’m 41 but a kid at heart. I like all things weird. I have two teenagers and a husband. I grew up in Renton, WA and didn’t go too far! My training is as a nurse but I don’t know what I want to do when I grow up still. I currently work as an Anticoagulation nurse. I stopped drinking alcohol 4 years ago and not ashamed at all! I’m a bit of a goof and spend a lot of time “snapping” my life on Instagram. Follow me if you like! @mermaidsandmailboxes I am trying to become the worlds biggest mermaid postcard collector! You can hear me on Episode 97 of the Postcardist Podcast (if you love postcards you should subscribe) https://thepostcardist.com/e97-mermaid-tales/
I am a Christian. I have been a photographer since I was 15 years old and enjoy candid and portrait photography along with manipulating angles and creative photography
I collect a lot of things, mermaids (send the postcards my way lol) in particular but I love old medical items, religious iconic art, interesting ceramics, enamel pins and weird stuff in general. I talk too much about serial killers (sorry not sorry) and Deadliest Catch (I talk too much in general). I’m obsessed with all things Hawaii because I don’t have headaches there and I LOVE coconut everything. Anatomy and science are AWESOME. I like trivia and memorizing historical stuff.

I don’t do judgement... I’m more concerned by someone’s character than their choice of partner, faith, color, or place of origin....so on! I support human beings.
I suffer from a rare disease called Chronic Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (google it sometime 🤪) and Trigeminal neuralgia, plus neuropathy. I have Degenerative Joint Disease as well, yipeee!
I started writing again to combat the isolation and loneliness that comes with an invisible, chronic and very painful condition (I look fine to everyone else). I count my blessings and I refuse to give up even though many day I do want to. I try to live like I have little time left, not a lifetime to come. I try to love all people the way they feel they deserve, not the way I think they deserve. Bottom line is everyone deserves the love that we believe deserve. Mental Health Matters!

Real, human, stories, that’s what inspires me. I am generally interested in anyone who has something they want to share about themselves. Your strange coincidence, six degrees of separation, past and present colliding, I want those stories. Your triumphs and struggles and how you fight or overcame (because that matters).
I have some of my own that I hope inspire others too.
