About Me

QUICK UPDATE June 12, 2022 The end of the school year has come more quickly than I had anticipated and I have been more swamped than I thought I would be. I am slowly getting caught up on my swaps and getting things out as quickly as I can. Luckily, I now have the summer to relax and spend some more time swapping. Thank you for your understanding!


I am a 47 year old wife, mother, and teacher living in Northern VA. I love to read, write letters/receive letters, spend time with family, camp, and travel. I am growing weary of social networking online and want more personal contact with people. I love to send things to people and find fun mail in my mailbox.

Favorite Books

Jane Eyre Anything by Diana Palmer, Jodi Piccoult, Nora Roberts, Jane Austen Anne of Green Gables series Flowers in the Attic series Harry Potter series Bridgerton series Currently reading children's classic novels that I did not read as a child

Favorite Music

Celtic Punk (I really like Enter the Haggis right now) 80s hair metal (never miss Def Leppard when they come around) Heavy Metal (especially Metallica) Green Day pop music 80s and 90s pop really I love just about everything except rap music 50s pop music

Favorite Movies

Sleepless in Seattle Bridget Jones' Diary Sixteen Candles The Breakfast Club Pretty in Pink Breakfast at Tiffany's movies about ghosts and supernatural Nightmare on Elm Street Thor movies The Avengers series Harry Potter series

Favorite Television

Dexter Supernatural Great British Bake Off Barefoot Contessa The Crown Atypical history documentaries science documentaries The Big Bang Theory Jeopardy!

Collectibles

While I don't really collect anything, I do like all things Winne the Pooh, especially Eeyore, Barbie, Harry Potter, Tea Cups/Saucers, Teapots

Hobbies

reading; travelling; camping; Girl Scouts (I was a leader of 7 years); writing letters; cooking (I used to bake competitively); gardening; hiking; kickboxing

Current Occupation

High school English teacher; I finished my MA in Literature (focusing my research on orphan/bastard children in the literature of Pre- and Victorian England) in 2017 -- woohoo!

Postcards

Tourist Nature Animals Vintage

I love all postcards, but I really enjoy ones that show something about where you are from. I love to travel, but can't get everywhere, so I live vicariously through my postcards.

States I am missing in my collection:

Delaware

Kansas

Maryland

North Dakota

West Virginia

Comment: This was a thoughtful letter. I am now excited about your travel plans. I have only heard of the idea of 'ghost tour of the town' as we don't have anything like that here in India. Sounds interesting. Your reading list sounds interesting, It has a bit of everything. Glad we could swap. Happy swapping.
