I am an R.N. by profession and have worked 32 years on night shift in a hospital based Physical Medicine( REHAB) unit. I recently went Part Time due to health issues.
I am married to Joe, who recently retired as a Letter Carrier for the United States Post Office, for 38 years!!! We have 2 sons who are out on their own but live right down the road so we are finally empty nesters and we LOVE it!! I am nobody's Grandmother and I am okay with that!!
We live in North Eastern Pa. in the Pocono Mountain region.
I was raised by 2 full time working parents, both ancestors of Polish immigrants. My Husband also was raised by 2 full time working parents with ancestors of Polish and Russian descent . His maternal grand mother never learned to speak a word of English and only spoke Polish as my maternal grand mother also did.
I have worked and made my own money since I was 12 y/o , babysitting for 4 different families! I have , and still am, been the major Bread Winner for most of my married life.
I LOVE the Victorian Era and have decorated our home in that style. I have quite a few health issues that prevent me from traveling distances. So I decided to make our little townhouse that we have owned for 34 years into the type of B&B that I would like to stay at while on vacation. I have done this using inherited items, flea market finds, yard sale treasures and Clearance Sale Buys! When I come home in the morning after working all night long, I look at my home and want to drop to my knees and Thank God I am home. My Home makes me and my family happy and after all, isn't that all that counts???
Another one of my passions is decorating our townhouse for different Holidays, with Christmas being my absolute favorite time of year. I even have my own Christmas blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas.
In 2013, I had 19 Christmas trees in our home in various sizes and shapes. If it had lights on or ornaments, I counted it in the 19 trees.
I am also a cancer survivor and reached my 5 year mark in 2011!
Life is too short and "It is never to late to be what you might have been".
My blog is a reflection of what I love in life so I hope you would be so kind to follow me along my journey!
