About Me

I just had a baby! Its really nothing like I thought it would be. Thanks to all that sent me some fun and informative tips in some of my swaps, its been great help. Since I will be at home for a bit I hope to stay mildly active on swap bot, but truth be told I am the worst at responding to messages in a timely manner, but I do always eventually respond! I am going to stick to mostly PC swaps and the occasional package or two!

If you have not received anything from me, please send me an email so that I can re-send. I know we are not all perfect and neither is the post office. If you have received something from me, please rate as soon as possible so that I know it has not gotten lost in the mail. If you need extra time on your swap, please send an email, I will understand we are all busy and have life's. Please message me before you rate a 1 or 3 so I can resolve it. Thanks!

Traveling is one of my favorite things to do. I would like to go to all 50 states! So far I have just been to: Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Arizona I don't count airports or crossing over as visiting the state.

Places I've been:

APDG ~ Hobbit Day

I started from the movies, I was a teenager, and I was in love with Frodo

Then I started to read The Hobbits, and I truly found it awesome. I liked the adventure feeling!

I started wanting to live in those tiny house:

And this is my favourite quote:

β€œHome is behind, the world ahead, And there are many paths to tread Through shadows to the edge of night, Until the stars are all alight. Then world behind and home ahead, We'll wander back and home to bed. Mist and twilight, cloud and shade, Away shall fade! Away shall fade!”

APDG ~ Hobbit Day

It was not until I was in college that I decided to read the Lord of the Rings series and The Hobbit. I watched the movies while reading the trilogy. I did enjoy reading the books more than I thought and still trying to read other books Tolkien wrote.
