I am a 51-year-old wife, mother, grandmother of two, and teacher living in Northern VA. I love to read, write letters/receive letters, spend time with family, camp, and travel.

Favorite Movies

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!

Postcards

Tourist Nature Animals Vintage

I love all postcards, but I really enjoy ones that show something about where you are from. I love to travel, but can't get everywhere, so I live vicariously through my postcards.

States I am missing in my collection:

Delaware

Kansas

Maryland

North Dakota

West Virginia

UPDATE MAY 15, 2024

There has been a lot going on here the past few months, and sadly I have gotten behind in several swaps. I had surgery in January that took much longer to heal than expected. My new granddaughter has had some major health issues that have taken my attention. We had a death in the family recently, and now my husband has lost his job after almost 30 years. Suffice to say that swapping has sadly taken a back burner. I am in the process of reviewing to be sure that swaps received have been registered and that any missing swaps on my end have been remedied. Thank you so much for your patience and grace, and I do hope to have every thing put to rights but the end of the month.

Comment: Hello, Amy! Thank you for the wonderful letter on the prettiest paper! The wax seal was a lovely touch. I love the idea of forest bathing, although I am not close to many forests. I suppose it's good just to be walking in nature. Have a wonderful day. Gina
