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. (15, 13, 9 yrs old)

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 place to be when they 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. Sometimes, I just feel like writing.

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. It might make me a huge nerd, but it's me. 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.

I don’t think I’ve ever been jealous about a cake before, but now I totally am!! Lol You are amazing. 😉

Stupid autocorrect. Crisply = once. 🙄

splendorpursuit on Feb 13, 2019:

I just came across your profile via your washi swap. “It looks like two pigs fightin’ under a blanket.” I looooove Steel Magnolias. I pretty much have the entire thing memorized. I crisply used the graveyard scene for a theater audition once and got the lead from it (no joke). Such a good film. They don’t make ‘em like that anymore, do they?

Did you hear about that woman who sued and won to get her family portraits back that Klimt painted? How you are well! Xoxo

Both of my grandfathers were coal miners and the Gustav Klimt on your profile hung in our dining room for many years. God Bless!! Sue
