October 7th 2018 Today is my first day back since March. I missed swapping so much! Feeling so very thankful that am able to come back to it now :)
March 5th 2018 I haven’t been on here more than 2 times in the last 3-4 weeks. I did log in today to reply to a few messages, but being that I have around 30 to reply to, please be patient. I have had some unforeseen events take place that have pulled me away from swapping. I’m hoping to be back soon. God bless
*** I SEND ALL MY SWAPS***
If you have not received a swap from me, please message me before rating me. I promise to always try my â€œpersonalâ€ best to send on time and to send you a very special swap. I always aim to earn your heart rating. Lost mail and unexpected delays does happen. LIFE HAPPENS! Sometimes we need a reminder that this is a recreational swapping site and not a business... right? You never know, it may happen to you one day. Letâ€™s all be kind to one another and keep this fun!
I recently made a few mistakes with not adding postage, wrote the wrong address and was running behind due to health issues. I have had one illness after another since December. Some minor, some more serious.... Iâ€™m so EXTREMELY thankful for the ladies who were so kind and so compassionate about that!! My love and admiration goes out to you ladies!
If you are running behind sending a swap to me, please let me know. Communication is important. I am an understanding person and know all too well that life can be so very unpredictable at times. Swapping is supposed to be fun and not stressful. Simply let me know you need a few more days or even weeks. Itâ€™s just a swap, not time sensitive legal documents. My life wonâ€™t be altered in the slightest if youâ€™re running late :)

When I was a single mom only a few short years ago, I worked for a photography company for several years before doing freelance. I love photography! I still take photos every day, just no longer of people. I take photos of clothing now. I hired a model for my clothing business and now looking to add another.
I used to work for well-known pediatrician Dr William Sears. He has wrote several books on child rearing. One of my favorites of his is: The NDD Book. NDD stands for Nutrition Deficit Disorder. How a lot of parents feed their kids has become quite an issue. Especially with a household of both parents working, which can equal less home cooked meals and too much packaged foods. I can provide tips for busy moms who want to incorporate more Whole Foods into their families diets, as well as helping moms to change old habits and reshape your child's taste buds. I worked at his Irvine California office promoting his line of products, like his snacks and vitamins. I also was a community moderator for his Facebook page. Based off of Dr Sears philosophies and his books (yes, it was required that I read them) and with my own experience of being a mom for many years, I answered questions parents had regarding all areas of child rearing concerns. I also wrote the daily nutritional tip. I really enjoyed working for Dr Sears. I admire his passion for kids and family. Every child is uniquely different and special. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. If you've been wanting to change your kids diets but are being met with resistance, that's totally normal. The key is to be consistent and not give up. I often told parents that kids will eat what you bring home. First start off by not buying the junk food, and limiting it to a special occasional treat. Not a daily staple. Youâ€™re welcome to reach out to me if you have a question or concerns. God bless you all! I hope that 2018 will be a year for us all of to show more patience and kindness to one another. I wish you all better health and prosperity.
