Description:

This May is my parents' 25th Anniversary. Their silver anniversary. I've been working on a scrapbook of their wedding for a while, and I'm missing some of the pages.

I really wanted to do something nice for them, especially after all they have been through. It hasn't been an easy 25 years.

For this swap, there will be 2 components.

The first component: each person will send 1 PC (naked or envie, senders choice) to their partner.

The second component is a RAK.

For this random act of kindness RAK, I'm asking all of you if you could please send my parents something for their 25th wedding anniversary. It could be whatever you would like, I would be appreciative of anything. A card, a letter, a note. Whatever you would like. Feel free to write your wedding or love story if you'd like to make it more personal. My mom would love to read it(:

My parents never get any happy mail, and this sounds like a good time for them to be pleasantly surprised. They always see my swaps coming in and going out. I want them to get something nice for a change. (:

Once the signup deadline has passed, I will message you the address on swapbot for the RAK. It will be my address, just addressed to my parents.

Please be sure to write your swapbot name on the RAK so I can thank you all!! :D

Newbies are welcome with a well-filled out profile

no 1s or 3s unexplained

Thanks a ton to everyone who participates in this swap! Happy swapping to everyone! Please feel free to comment with any questions you may have.

You mention the golden anniversary, I think you meant to write silver instead. 50 is the golden one.

And I am at 28 years, I begged for a 25 party and hubby was in his mental decline, so I could not have one. Paranoid Schizophrenia is not easy to deal with, nothing can be normal. I hope your parents and you have a wonderful time!

silver! yes! Thank you, I will fix that. Sorry to hear about your husband. Thank you for the wishes-I think we are all going out to celebrate tomorrow!

I'm happy just to do the RAK if you like? :) not in the US, but happy to send a card from here :)

christy102194 05/22/2013 #

That would be wonderful (: Thank you so much! I can message you the address when you would like.

My mum and dad were married for 67 years when my dad died. Send me the address and I'll send a card. I'm not in the U.S. I actually remember my mum and dad's 25th!!

Sorry to hear that): 67 years though, that's quite a long time! Thank you so much for doing the RAK! I will send you the address(:

@Christy102194 what're your parents' names?! I'm forcing my lady to join this aswell, so we can tell our story together; wouldn't that be cool? My parents have been married for 37 years!

christy102194 05/26/2013 #

@takehimaway Kevin and Marcia(: Also, that would be cool, my mom would love it! That's a long time..! Thanks for doing the RAK(:

@christy102194 Hello! I am @takehimaway 's lady! I would love to join this swap! I am brand spankin' new to the site and this seems like a great first swap for me! My parents had celebrated their 25th anniversary back in April. They did a renewing of vows/wedding since it has just recently become legal for them to marry! I look forward to sending your parents a letter telling them the story of my loving parents and the story about how I met my true love. I have a question, would either of your parents be interested in being pen pals? I think it would be lovely!

christy102194 05/27/2013 #

Happy to have you @HisHarmony (: I can't wait to hear your story! I don't think my parents would want to be pen pals, though, since they aren't as into swapping as I am. They can never find the time. But I would love to drop a line every now and then if you'd like. :D

takehimaway 05/28/2013 #

I have never really had a penpal -- at least not one for any long period of time. Yeah, that sounds like a sweet idea; I couldn't think of anything else to do. it is a long time. You're very welcome!
