About Me

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.

Here are some specific likes/favorites:

Books: Jane Eyre; anything Diana Palmer/Jodi Piccoult/Nora Roberts

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); pop music -- really I love just about everything except rap music

Movies: chick flicks (especially Bridget Jones and Sleepless in Seattle); horror (ghost stories are a plus); anything by John Hughes

TV: Dexter; Supernatural; history channel; food network (love Pioneer Woman and Barefoot Contessa); The Crown; Downton Abbey; Breaking Bad

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!
