May 24, 2019: I'm away all summer and won't be active on SB. I sent everything out before I left. I'll rate when I return in August for anything that arrives while I'm gone. Apologies for the delay! Have a great summer!
WOW! We like things a little wild and chaotic, but it has been a little too much lately! In the last 3 years we've lived in 4 countries on 3 continents -- not to mention all of the other travel we've done. As of May 2018, we've landed in the perfect little hippie-dippie house in Virginia and will probably stay awhile. In the past, we lived in Malta, Cambodia, Vanuatu, Ghana, Tanzania, and Australia.
"We" = me + my 16yo daughter who is the coolest (and most patient!) kid around. I simply adore her and consider myself to be the luckiest mom on the planet in that she shares my gypsy feet and is always up for the next adventure! She is a protector of all living things and her compassion stuns me on a regular basis.
My teenage daughter and I travel ALOT. She has a bucket list of places to check off before she goes to college. She's 16 and on her third passport! So far, shes managed to check off 24 countries.
Other than being constantly in need of new luggage, I'm a child rights lawyer and researcher. I research and write about child welfare and adoption.
I'm an artist wannabe. I don't have any special talent but I quilt, sew, do various kinds of needlework and have lately gotten into paper crafts.
1980 hair bands. Shameful but true.
Huge reader. We've spent most of the last 10 years living in developing countries where there is no such thing as TV -- that suits us fine because we are readers. Outlander fan, but I also like any historical fiction and lawyer/legal thrillers.
I also spend way more time than I should on Crosswords!
Random things that make me happy:
THINGS I CAN HAPPILY LIVE WITHOUT:
IF YOU DON'T GET SOMETHING FROM ME, LET ME KNOW PLEASE.
Postcard Wishlist: Given the option, I'd rather came they blank/unused in an envie but naked is fine too. I don't really care what kind of card, but my most favorite are ones with children on them. I also really like interesting images, watercolors, birds, books, maps, animals, clocks....
Not a fan of tourist cards.
No Religious, Rude, Crude, or Mean cards please.
I like to recycle stuff -- Please don't be offended if I use newspapers or mag pages or other interesting materials for envies and mailers. Thanks!
** Please use the messaging system on SB and not my email account. My email is subject to review by third parties and I'd much rather my personal stuff not mix with my work stuff. Thank you!
It is possible that my cats, Oddly and Adler, will want to send you something as well. They have been known to include a cat hair or two in the envies. I do my best to avoid that, but they love to hang out on my desk (the better to see the squirrels in the yard and increase their changes of getting a cuddle). My apologies in advance if my mail arrives with a stray cat hair or two.
