About Me

Happily married for almost 20 years to a guy a dragged all the way here from Australia. We have 2 wonderful children, middle school and almost done high school. We added to the fun recently with a little rescue pup, Luna, who has stolen everyone's heart.

I love Disney, if we could relocate to California.. I would be ALL over it. For now, I will keep my house right where it is. I live in New England and get the best of all 4 seasons, especially Fall.

Favorite Music

I am truly all over the place. I love oldies and doo-wop, classical and country and there is nothing wrong with a good ballad in any genre. Not a huge fan of all the stuff on the radio today, but I will give it a try.

Favorite Movies

Movies.. I have so many favorites. Disney, Dead Poets Society, Man Without A Face, Steel Magnolias, any of the Marvel Avengers

Favorite Television

Classic Stuff Mad About You, Gilmore Girls, Glee, White Collar.

Current Stuff Million Little Things, The Good Doctor & This is US

Favorite Crafts

Some of the things I love: Scrapbook Quality Stickers, Wood pieces, Fun ephemera. Things I can use when I scrapbook. Art journaling and supplies Watercolors Doilies, All things Disney, Fall, Snowflakes, Groundhog Day (my favorite holiday of the YEAR Traditions - I enjoy the simple joys that they bring To-do lists, Tea - Especially Mint or Fruity Flavors, Hot Cocoa, Pens that write well, Colors Pink and Brown (especially together), Peppermint.. most minty flavors or smells, Penpals and letters have always been fun. I meet people in unconventional ways and make life long friendships, including, my husband. I love getting fun mail and send it too, New baby smell, if you have figured out a way to bottle that.. Happy to take a sample.. :)

Comment: Thank you, Monique, for the stickers and your letter. I adore the cute succulent stickers. And thank you for sharing your worries. I wondered if the word "worry" is a bit anxiety-provoking when I read your letter and changed the question up on my profile. I do believe you will make it through with your 11-yr-old. Hormones will eventually settle. You're doing just fine! Godspeed. =]
Response: Glad you enjoyed the letter & stickers.. Sorry if my response was too honest. i know she will be fine. just where I was on the day.. :)
Comment: What a wonderful envelopes (inside and out) filled with profile goodies. Can't wait to use all of it my journals.Thanks, Monique for the very special swap!!!
