I will be away from Oct 18-24 2017 so please be patient on receiving a rating upon my return. Thank-you.
Updated 09-02-2017...I finished my 500th swap. Am having so much fun sending out smiles to everyone.
In these past few weeks, I have gotten international mail WAY after it has been sent. One took a month, the other longer than 8 weeks. I do believe even our mail wants to vacation a bit.
May all have a very blessed 2017
My newest niece, Amelia Love McDivitt was born on 7-20-16. So tiny and perfect.
On Mothers Day '16, My oldest son, Ben proposed to his girlfriend of 5 years. She said YES. I will be so happy to have her for a daughter. Sweet, kind and loving. A July 2018 wedding being planned.
*** If you don't receive a swap from me when I note that I sent it, please notify me ASAP so I can resend it. It is not my personality to flake. Never have, and don't intend to start. My word is my bond. Swapping means too much to me to flake. I LOVE bringing joy to others.
Born and raised in Lancaster, Pa, Lived/studied in Dusseldorf, Germany in 1988. Also did the Eurorail (it was a 30 day long train travel pass in which I backpacked through 10 countries) that summer (to celebrate my 20th birthday). 1990-1991 lived in Figueira da Foz, Portugal. Settled back in Lancaster in '91 and got married. Divorced in 2010 after 19 years. Found the perfect man in 2011 and married him in 2012. We now live in Michigan. I have 3 children, Ben (1995) Alexis (1996) and Troy (2002). I enjoy swapping and pen paling internationally. I have several indoor cats, Puma, Ms Priss (indoor during winter months only), Mr Dingles & Luna. The later 2 are my daughters.
In my spare time I enjoy walking, baking/cooking new recipes, flower gardening (I have a friendship garden that I have gotten transplants from many friends--you can add too it if you like), traveling, Atlantic Beach Time, antique and thrift store shopping, swapping almost anything and pen paling internationally.
I enjoy www.wheresgeorge.com with my user name Michelle His Belle.
I also am a part timer in Geocaching. My name there is Mstracker. I go with my brother when I visit him and he tracks them and I just totally forget too. I gotta change that!
My favorite holiday is Christmas. I decorate immensely. I mail out over 200 Christmas cards. If you mail me one, I always mail a return. It is always a pleasure meeting new people.
Thank-you for taking the time to get to know me. Hopefully I can get to know you. Peace and Love.
I listen to Country, Pop and Classical (we have this on while we eat dinner). I don't like RAP or Jazz. Lately I have been listening to Celtic and New Age music to write my pen pals. Its very calming to the soul.
