Swap Partners please note: Even though I live in Korea, my address is an APO box address which is a domestic USA address. Please do not put the country (South Korea) with the address. It will still arrive if you do, but it will take longer as it will be routed through Korean customs before being handed back over to American postal services
Hello! My name is Danielle, but feel free to call me Dani if you like. I am currently 27 years old and living in South Korea with my amazing husband (Bobby) and heathen cat (Freya).
I tend to be very laid back, but I can be very serious as well. I'm open minded and usually willing to compromise. But I can also be extremely stubborn with certain matters. I can also be very, very silly at times and am definitely still a child at heart. I sometimes ramble on and on...
I'm not easily offended, so don't worry about that. I am very, very curious by nature. I love learning about anything and everything. I also love to travel, explore and try new things. I am absolutely fascinated by Ancient History and Foreign Cultures. I like playing with make up and fashion. And I love researching the Victorian Era. I also love languages and am currently focusing on learning Korean.
I'm originally from Georgia, though I traveled a lot growing up. But I will always be a Peach and Georgia is where my roots remain deepest.
My tastes are pretty varied. I love Kawaii, Vintage florals and Elegant Gothic or Rock themes.
I am a HUGE strawberry addict. I collect anything strawberry themed with one exception: I'm not very fond of strawberry shortcake the character. I will never have enough strawberry items. I have no idea why I love them so much, but they never fail to make me happy. I also love roses and skulls. Though I don't much care for Jolly Roger (pirate flag) themed items.
I love little treasures and whimsies. Pretty feathers, pieces of bone, foreign currency, interesting pieces of jewelry or beads, postcards, buttons, pins, handmade gifts and things to tuck into my treasure chest and apothecary cabinet. I also collect vintage linens like hankies and tea towels. And I LOVE doilies and lace. Even ones with damage are appreciated by me. I'll either fix them up or repurpose them.
I am fortunate to be married to a wonderful, supportive Hubby who encourages my swap-bot interests. haha He enjoys looking through my mail with me. He loves spicy things, dark chocolate and is a complete Tobasco sauce freak. He puts it on EVERYTHING! (ick!). He also likes interesting pens and origami.
We collect matching couples items. Yes, we are cheesy like that.
