Hello and welcome to my home. I’m so happy you stopped by to visit. Come on in and let me show you around so you’ll know just where to find things on your next visit.


Upon entering each room, you’ll find my various blogs. I won’t take up too much of your time here in the foyer because there’s so much to see; so let’s get going. After our tour, feel free to stop by anytime you’d like and browse each room at your leisure. After all, mi casa es su casa and you’re always welcome.

Living Room

Here in the Living Room I muse about my daily adventures. If you aren’t yet following my Tea Room Diaries Facebook page, please stop by and give it a like so you’ll always know when I’ve posted something new here.

Family Room

In the Family Room you will find lots of family videos. I first started creating videos in 2015 in honor of my mother as she approached her 80th birthday. That project has grown tremendously since then so I have lots of fun and entertaining productions to share. I hope you will visit often and check out all my videos; I promise you will not be bored.

My Boudoir

The bedroom is where I share my poetry, my post-divorce dating experiences, and my personal thoughts on relationships and dating in general.

My Closet

In my closet is where I store all the letters I have ever written. I thought long and hard about whether or not to share my letters because they are very personal. But TRD is an open journal and my letters help to tell my story so I decided to go all the way and bare my soul. Be on the lookout for when I decide to share them.


The library is where I share my views on social issues, politics, and religion. Beware before entering the library if you are easily offended because I have strong views and I don’t sugarcoat . I’ll also share links to articles and books that I find interesting.



The laundry is where I share the stories that were inspired by my “Dear John” letters dating back to 1989. I wrote these particular letters during my stormy courtship with my then fiancé, Leon, during our many breakups… which started soon after our first date. As my stories will reveal, each breakup was due to his lies and infidelity.

I won’t air all my dirty laundry here in the foyer; but just to give a little background before you enter the laundry… when Leon and I first met, he had not yet ended his six-year relationship with another woman; and I got caught in the middle of the storm. Once I got wind of what was going on, all hell broke loose.  That’s as much as I’ll say for now, but you’ll find all the dirty details of our turbulent courtship here in my laundry room.

That completes our brief tour of my home. As you have seen, I have some exciting treasures in store for you. I hope you enjoy your time here at TRD and that you leave with a desire to visit often. You are certainly welcome to stop by anytime you wish for a heartwarming cup of spice tea for your soul.

The Mall

Last but not least is The Mall. Here is where you’ll find links to products you might be interested in. I’m happy to place links here for you at your request, so just let me know what you’re looking for and I’ll grab the product link for you.
