I’m sassy, classy, and a wee-bit bad-assy. SOCIAL BUTTERFLY! I am 29, and I have a 4-year-old little girl. I hike, paint, draw, write, run, play volleyball, explore, and read. My FAVORITE show is Friends, but I’m also a big fan of Gilmore Girls, Grey’s Anatomy, and Supernatural. I LOVE my bullet journal and I’m usually caught working in that when I don’t have my daughter. I’m super outgoing, comedian, entertaining, totally insane, and always the hostess. When I write letters, I make my own envelopes, swap tea and stickers/small stationary or paper art, and normally write back within a week - depending on life haha!
I live in Central Pennsylvania, which is very-much that "hee-haw country" life - minus the southern accent. I explore as much as I can and as often as I can, but having a toddler makes that difficult. I've taken solo trips, and trips with friends. As long as I can venture out and try new things, I'm a happy girl.
My daughter is my WORLD!! She's the spittin' image of her mama - meaning I'll have my hands full for the rest of my life.
^^Me when I was on my solo trip a few states south. Don't ask why I look scared hahahaha!
Country music, R&B, slow Jazz - mostly when I'm cleaning though... ya know? I pretty much love all music! (Except polka.. never got into that)
Music has always been my go-to with everything. Having a bad day - music. Need to clean my house - music. Have a night to myself and I'm relaxing - music.
Now, I listen to a lot of audio books. Since I have a 40-mile commute to and from work, I tend to have a lot of time to listen!
FRIENDS!!!!!!!! Gilmore Girls, Supernatural, Grey's Anatomy, House, Bones, anything on HGTV... Funny thing though - I don't have cable haha! I rely mainly on Netflix and enjoy going to the doctor so I can watch TV in the waiting room... don't judge - HAHA!
I'm an artist - so I love to paint (watercolor and acrylic), draw, and doodle. I'm a Bujo FREAK and LOVE decorating my bullet journal. I'm also a pen pal to about 11 people right now and we swap all kinds of things including handmade art, stationary, paper crafts, letters, etc.
I had no idea what an ATC was until I searched the glossary of this site and they seem interesting - so if anyone is willing to swap one or two with me, I would appreciate it!

I find that I love chick flicks and just about any action movie!
Robyn Carr, Nora Roberts - two of my favorite authors. I also love Jennifer Weiner, which shows that I love those lovey dovey romance books.
I also enjoy adventurous/sci-fi type novels as well - House of the Scorpion, The Mortal Instruments.
I'm just now getting back into reading and my list of things to read is HUGE! ...and growing. But I tend to use Audible more than anything because, like I said above, I have a daughter and a commute, so most of my reading/book-content-absorbing, tends to happen while I'm in the car.
• Disney • HGTV • Super Mario Kart • Slush Puppies • Purple • The beach • Summer • Skiing/snowboarding • Tiger lilies • Inspirational quotes • Dark chocolate • Burt’s Bee’s chapstick • Thunderstorms • Fluffy dogs and BIG dogs • Handmade products (lotions, soaps, bath bombs, etc) • Essential oils • Naps • Fashion scarves • Silver/white gold • Glittery everything • Stuffed bears • Manatees • Coke • Sushi • Owls • Colored pencils • Paperback books • Horror movies • Mushrooms • Doodles • Short poems • Deep conversations
*Insert - "I've Been Everywhere Man" .. except that I haven't.
My bucket list is 13 pages long, 90% of that being destinations.
All of the US States, except Hawaii and Alaska. I will be marking off the New England states in June - going on a 2 week camping trip up north and super pumped about it!
I've done a solo trip where I threw a dart at a map of the U.S. and it landed on a state, so I got in my car and drove there. I slept in my car, met some new people, experimented with foods - it was a blast and I would totally do it again!
I have a goal to photograph 200 different waterfalls (not 200 photos of the same one) and I just started this goal - currently at 17
I get my passport this month (March 2019) and I'm super pumped to finally venture outside the USA!
Currently I have 11 active penpals from all over the world, in addition to doing swap-bot swaps. I don't really consider Swap-bot-ing a pen pal thing because with my pen pals, I have a relationship.
Aside from pen pals, I also have two traveling notebooks journeying throughout the world, allowing some new people I've met to leave their mark on the inside pages. Once it makes its way back to me, I will have a piece from 26 different countries and I could NOT be more excited about that.
When I send my penpal letters, I send more than just some words on paper. They get a few gifts, some jokes, some love, and normally a whole lotta TMI from yours truly, which they tend to reciprocate with a laugh and an ink-implied hug. My pen pals are like my family and I tend to hold them close to my heart.
