About Me

9/23/2020 My life had other plans for me this past year, nothing seems to be the same but I'm back on the road to find what the new normal is. I've reached out to every single person for swaps I missed and will continue to make things right. I need to get back into swapping it brought so much joy to my life and I need a little joy right now.

Thank you for reading and Happy Swapping.

I like learning new things.

I'm spontaneous, loud and loyal.

I'm a night owl that hates mornings.

My Off the wall collection: Coffee Mugs When I prefer Ice Tea over coffee

I'm HORRIBLE at grammar and all things that come with that. To think I was almost a teacher too.

Someday I will travel, finish one journal instead of having multiples, dye my hair BLONDE, and find my brother I never met.

Comment: Great list! I knew all of the songs except for the ones from beaches. I've got a soft spot for a lot of things from the 80's, so seeing something like Dirty Dancing and Footloose always makes me happy.^_^ Thanks for sharing.

MamaDiscovered on Nov 30, 2020:

I am grateful that you did what you needed to do this year instead of abandoning ship and running away from the world. Finding a new normal can seem like an impossible task but it sounds like you are well on your way down a new path. I hope we continue to bring you joy and that we shine a little light into your days!



this transformation

is painful,

but you're not falling apart;

you're just falling into something


with a new capacity

to be beautiful.
