About Me

Married, 31 year old, vegan mother of a vegetarian, 3 year old little dude who looks and acts way too much like me. I like hiking, baseball, beer, baking, and crocheting. (I'm well-rounded, what can I say???)

To get a good idea of who I am...I have made a bucket list.

*Do a polar plunge *See all 7 Wonders of the World *Cage dive with Great Whites *Collect a postcard from every country in the world. *Hike 100 miles of the Appalachian Trail *Kayak around the entire lower peninsula of Michigan *Live in a Redwood Tree for a month *Swim with a Blue Whale and/or a Whale Shark *Soak in a geothermal pool in Iceland *Experience an earthquake *Shake hands with the Dalai Lama *Take my son and husband to Catalina Island *Spend another day in Waipi'o, Hawaii *Learn to speak Hawaiian *Lay in a hammock on the beach on an island in the South Pacific *Spend the night in a haunted place *Go to the voodoo museum in New Orleans *Spend 3 months in an Indian Ashram *Dance in a music video *Learn how to drive a manual transmission *Open a vegan bakery *Take a train across Alaska *Be on a reality TV show *Publish a cookbook *Sail around the world *Go on a campaign with the Sea Shepherd organization

****AS A NOTE, I ALWAYS SEND MY SWAPS OUT ON TIME, IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED MY PACKAGE/LETTER/POSTCARD IN THE MAIL IN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME, PLEASE LET ME KNOW, I WILL BE HAPPY TO RESEND.****

I've recently started a branch of Hike it Baby here in Ann Arbor. Hike it Baby is a parent group that focuses on getting families out into nature as soon as possible after the birthing process. This helps prevents postpartum depression, creates a supportive environment for moms, dads, and children; and instills a sense of appreciation for nature. We host hikes all over the nation and in Canada. It's seriously changed my life! Get out and get some fresh air! :)

Postcards

I've started a postcard collecting project for my son, Neko. I'd like to share the world with him from a very young age. I grew up in a small town and never realized there was an entire world out there to discover until I was 16 or 17 years old. I want him to reach for the stars, dream big dreams, and travel around the world - do all of the things that I did and MORE.

Please send Neko and I a postcard that symbolizes your country, city, or region, and tell us about who you are, the kinds of things you like to do, and maybe tell us something we might not know about where you live! Or...maybe you want to pass along a wise saying or advice to a two year old or a mother of a two year old! My goal is to collect a postcard from every country in the world. If you think you can help us, let us know!

Also, we are collecting UNESCO World Heritage Site postcards!

Neko

Neko is my 3 year old son. He is my absolute pride and joy. He was a surprise, but the best surprise I could have ever imagined! He loves the water, cars, garbage trucks, construction equipment, animals, and reading. He's into superheros, especially Batman, Spiderman, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

He is what inspired me to start collecting postcards! :)

Hi Annie ♥

I just wanted to leave you a comment telling you how much I enjoyed participating in the Traveling Postcard Swap Series... I remember when I first saw the swap, I didn't meet the requirements (because I didn't have enough ratings), but as soon as I met the requirements (50 type 2 / type 3 swaps completed) I signed up immediately! Haha! I participated every round from R12-R40 and was happy to have received two completed postcards back during the time I participated! ♥ I think the reason I enjoyed the swap so much was because you were such a wonderful and helpful host... I just wanted to tell you THANK YOU for hosting the swap as long as you did and I'm happy to have been a part of it! ♥
