I was an R.N. by profession for 42 years and worked for 37 years on night shift in a
hospital based Physical Medicine( REHAB) unit until it was shut down in November of 2018.
I am married to Joe, who retired from the United States Postal Service as a Letter Carrier at the age of 62 years old. We have 2 sons who are out on their own but live right down the road from us. Our younger son, Jim, is married to his long time Love, Danielle.
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 great grand mother also did.
I have worked and made my own money since I was 12 y/o , babysitting for 4 different families! I was the major Bread Winner for most of my married life. I recently RETIRED after Knee Replacement Surgery and I am loving it!!
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 42 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 would come home in the morning after working all night long, I would 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???
did have a small craft business where I participated in local craft
fairs. I made Victorian Style crafts and elegant floral creations. I also used to sell on Ebay. Now I just craft for myself and for family and friends...
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!
