Hello everyone,

My name is Vanessa Trafton and I just joined AARP and hope to meet alot of you I have common interests with. I'm an avid reader, movie buff and love to get my hands dirty in my garden. I also write and just had my first childrens picture book published. I enjoy an occassional game of tennis and relaxing outdoors listening to the sounds of nature. I don't have any children but, I have 2 wonderful grand nieces and a grand nephrew I babysit on a regular basis. I love life and have plans to travel quite alot and explore some of the beautiful states and islands out there. I was born in a blizzard back in 1966 in my family home of Monkton which I resided until the age of 31, that's when my mom passed at the young age of 48. I currently reside in the state of Maryland where I have lived all my life.
