About Me

My name is Casey. I am from a small town you'll never hear of, deep in the Appalachian mountains. I’ve been married 17 years to my beloved and we have three children together— a daughter and two sons.

I stay at home while my family goes off on their days to work and to school. I spend mine making our home a comfortable, relaxing place to be when they return. On the surface it may seem simple--clean bedsheets or an evening meal together at the table but my goal is to make my family feel considered and loved with these things. It's not lost on me that spending all day out in the world can be difficult and I feel so lucky to be here feathering the nest for their return. I treasure being a homemaker.

I am a Christian, an avid reader, a good listener and an honest friend. I love to crochet, cook and fiddle around in my flower beds when it’s pretty out. I have kept a journal since I was big enough to write a sentence and I love penpaling. I am easy to talk to and down to earth.

I like me. You will, too.

I love, love, love to write letters. Sitting down at my kitchen table in the quiet of the evening to write a friend is so relaxing for me. My letters are always hand written and I try and always use pretty stationary.

My Swaps

Swapping is very dear to my heart. It is without a doubt my favorite hobby and I have to say I love it. I take swapping seriously. With that being said, if there is ever a time when a swap of mine didn't make it to you, it's not because I didn't send. Sometimes things really do get lost in the mail. All you have to do is message me and I will resend or make it up to you the best I can. A lost swap is disappointing for everyone and it never has to be that way. Atleast not with me. All you gotta do is let me know. Thanks for reading.

Postcard Swaps

Postcard Swaps

I am always, always up for a postcard swap. I have recently started to collect postcard and I just can't have enough.

Private swaps or simply exchanging addresses to send a card--I'll always say yes.

Comment: Thanks for the letter and goodies. I love chocolate labs and puppies but only enjoy puppies in small doses. I really should find someone to dog sit for when I'm thinking of getting another. That is the best cure
Comment: Ohmigoodness thank you so much! I definitely understand why you love libraries so much - I've always felt the same way. My world is so much larger and more exciting because of books! Never lose that curiosity - that's the spice of life! And thank you for all the extras - they're absolutely perfect! Take care :)
Comment: Hi Casey, I really enjoyed your letter. Almost made me cry because I am homesick for time with family. I’m actually from West Virginia. All my family still lives there in Clarksburg and Parkersburg. I so long to spend holidays there with my mom and grandma. I miss the West Virginia Autumn. Babcock State Park was my home away from home when I lived there.
Response: Oh, I'm so glad you liked the letter! I hope you get to visit soon. It's almost time for the leaves to start changing. Love from one WV girl to another!

Comment: Oh yes, the dreaded dinner dilemma! I know it well. I tend to cook the same things over and over too. Maybe we can swap some recipe ideas?
Response: I’d love that! Send me a message and I’ll set up a private swap if you’d be interested.
