About Me

I'm a mother, wife and nature lover.

After working 21 years in a local elementary school, my time is now my own. And I have filled every minute of it.

I have two incredible volunteer jobs ever! During the summer months I am a trail guide at Timpanogos Cave National Monument. And I love it! Spending days hiking the trail and talking to those who are on an adventure is amazing. You can check it out here: https://www.nps.gov/tica/index.htm

During the colder months I volunteer at the Thanksgiving Point Butterfly Biosphere working with the entomologist and horticulturists help the butterflies thrive. It is peaceful, beautiful and humid. LOVE! You can check it out here: https://thanksgivingpoint.org/experience/butterfly-biosphere/

I try to spend as much time as possible outdoors. Hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, swimming, pretty much anything! I volunteer as a leave no trace trainer and love to teach and educate others on the importance of respecting our beautiful land.

I love deserts, beaches, forests, all of it! Being outside centers and balances me. You will always find me with a rock, shell or leaf in my pocket. I can't help it!

I have been married to the most wonderful man for 29 years and have 4 children, ages 26-18 and one sweet grandbaby! Life is good!

I am an eternal optimist. I try to always look for the good in situations and people.

In Conclusion

Letters are my favorite part of swaps. I love reading about the lives of others.

Tell me about your favorite hobby or your favorite food.

Tell me what makes you happy or what frustrates you.

Tell me what you did yesterday or what you hope to do tomorrow.

Tell me anything.

Happy SWAPPING!

Comment: Thanks for the swap, the nice letter and the extras. I still have several National Parks I haven't visited. I must admit that, as I have gotten older, fighting the crowds is harder. I tend to concentrate on caverns and train watching more now.

Comment: Jill, WOW! First of all, I love the letter that you wrote along with this zine! I really enjoyed reading the mermaid facts that you included in the letter! Thank you so much for included them:) I don't really have any Autumn traditions besides carving pumpkins, but I suppose that does count, LOL! I also really liked the quote you put in the letter about "whatever you were obsessed with when you were 12 becomes a core part of who you are now". That really got me thinking about the things I enjoyed when I was that age and how it incorporates into my life now! I also ADORE the zine that you created! It is really so perfect in every single way! I truly wish that I could give you more hearts for this swap, because that is how much I love everything! I love the added pockets as well, everything is so nicely put together. I am so grateful and appreciative for you!! :) This truly means so much to me, I will cherish it all forever! Thank you so much again, from the bottom of my heart! Sending hugs! Addie<3

Comment: Thank you so much for the letter. One of my goals at retirement is to volunteer. Seven years after this academic year!!! I really like how you create a theme for your notecards. Very pretty. Thanks for everything. FYI... there was a note for postage owed (58 cents) but the envelope was delivered without needing payment. There was one first class stamp and one extra ounce stamp on the envelope.
Response: Thank you for the heads up on postage due! I hate that! I weigh each envelope and try really hard to not come in under stamped. I'm glad you didn't need to pay, Thanks for the rating!

Hey I am sorry I just found your letter and will write you I feel so ashamed it was in the fold of the letter.

captkristi on Jan 12, 2021:

Random! I just saw that you had written on a rating that you grew up in Reno!! So cool. I am a Nevada girl. Maybe one day we will swap and talk more about it :) If you are interested in joining a fun group that I do a lot of swaps in let me know. It's Sunshine Swaps and Mail if you want to check it out. Have a good week! Kristi
