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 16 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 them.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.

Pen Pal wanted

If you’ve made it this far in reading my profile, bless you!

I’m currently seeking a serious female pen pal. Just a good natured, honest person to get to know and hopefully start a long friendship with.

I’ve written a number of letters in pen pal swaps but they never continue beyond swap requirements.

Ideally, we’d share about life and family, maybe a recipe here or there, a small craft or just a postcard.

Drop me a line if you’re looking for a long term pen pal, too.

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.

Joeanniee rated for TGIF Weekend Notecard #160 on Sep 2, 2019
Comment: Thank you for sharing your weekend with me. I am happy you had a successful bike trip with your daughter in the end.
Response: You’re welcome!
Comment: Hi, Casey, what a cool postcard! Thank you. I love the idea of your crochet group at the library. We have a group that meets at one of our branches that crochets and knits blankets and baby caps for newborns and other charities. One day, I hope to learn how to crochet and knit one day. ❤️ Have a great time with your group, sounds like such fun.
Response: Our group is fun. I hope to see it grow in the future. Learning to crochet is pretty easy— I watched YouTube videos (mainly a channel called Fiber Flux) and picked it up fairly quickly. If I can do it, you can do it!
Comment: Casey - thank you so much for re-sending this and for the extra PC as well! I would love to write back to you if you don't mind!
Response: Thank you!
Comment: Loved the postcard! Thank you!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely West Virginia postcard! I undoubtedly started singing when I got it, "West Virginia, Mountain Momma, Country Roads... Take me Home.." Lol Anyways, I'm super happy to add it to my collection! Thanks again!
Response: Classic song! There’s a joke here that says our father is John Denver and our mother is a mountain! Lol West Virginians love their state for sure. Glad you liked the card.

Comment: Thank you Casey! Writing you back now!
Response: You’re welcome!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely letter! I am responding this afternoon! (As you can see, I decided to wait for your swap letter so that I could respond and send my intro at the same time. Seemed like that would make for a smoother correspondence.) Have a happy Saturday!
Response: You’re very welcome!
