I appreciate kindness in all forms.
****UPDATE*** July 11, 2020 I'm taking a little break from Swap-Bot. I will complete my one outstanding swap and continue to check on my 'sent' swaps, but I need a break. Overall, Its been fun and a wonderful hobby to fill my time with these last 4-months. Especially since I spend so much time at home now. I'm just tired of chasing down ratings. Now that summer is in full swing, I'm going to spend my extra time outdoors playing in nature. I send all my swaps on time, so if you are waiting on something from me, PLEASE send me a message before rating down. I am happy to re-send any swap. I will do the same for you. THANK YOU!!
I practice yoga, reiki, meditation and energy healing.
I love to garden. When I was a kid, I would help my little Italian Grandma with her garden every summer. We would plant tomatoes, zucchini, all kinds of peppers, watermelon, green beans and potatoes. I've scaled my garden way back as an adult. I mostly plant a large variety of tomatoes, peppers and herbs. My favorite herbs are basil, rosemary and lavender. I love the way all 3 smell!!
I love spending time with my family - playing boards games, drinking, baking, Sunday dinner, summer days at the lake and winter days watching movies. UPDATE: Since March 2020 we've not been able to gather. I miss Sunday dinner, game nights, celebrating birthdays, holidays and the random Taco Tuesday. We have a weekly 3-hour Zoom call each Saturday and its awesome but not the same. I miss hugging!
