About Me

I am from New Hampshire, USA and have recently relocated to Vermont, USA.

I have a teenage daughter headed off to college next year

I share my home with my husband of 3 years and our Lucy (shar-pei/pitbull mix), Bun-bun (long hair black cat) & Oakley (tabby kitten)

I have always loved giving presents and writing letters and sending items to people so i figure this is the best way to do all those things and meet people in the process!

if you don't get a swap from me, please either message me on here or email me - i usually login here at least every other day, so i'll definitely get your message! I always read profiles to best get a sense of who i am sending to and will usually send extra stuff! I also rate the same day i receive items

please please write the name of the swap and your swap-bot name somewhere on the envelope

Favorite Music

i listen to different music based on my moods:

when I read i listen to either smooth jazz (instrumental, no lyrics) or george winston

when i'm angry i listen to screamo or metal, something that i can vicariously live the feeling through rather than act it out

Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely list. I grew up in Massachusetts, so I've been to Rye Beach! I miss the ocean. I now live in New Mexico. That's okay though; we have mountains!
Comment: I'll borrow that 90's playlist!
Comment: The Ocean is one of my favorite places to be as well!! I'll look into the books you listed as your favorite, I remember when the Red Tent came out, but I haven't read it. Also, a 90s playlist isn't a bad idea at all! Thanks for your answers!
Comment: I really enjoyed reading your answers & pointing out our similarities. I also love that your husband made you laugh with a good dad joke. I have friends who don't appreciate them nearly as much as I do.
Response: haha - they really are the best!!!
