I am in my mid twenties and I work at a tax firm. I wanted to broaden my horizons and meet new people. I graduated in May with a Bachelors of Business Administration in Management, a certificate in Accounting and one in Human Resources.
I am excited to announce that we had a little girl in April, we named her Brielle.
I have two boys who, along with my daughter are my entire world. My oldest is enjoying summer, getting ready to start first grade and my little guy will be in kindergarten this year! They are called Irish Twins because they were born in the same calendar year, 2006. My oldest was born in January, and my little guy was born in December.. Its really fun when they are the same age, it confuses alot of people!
I am engaged to a wonderful man whom I love very dearly. He is awesome and I finally feel like I have found my one and only. He loves Dallas Cowboys Football and Duke University Basketball.
I have a french bulldog named Tank who is my little buddy, and a great addition to our family (he was born summer 2010).

Feel free to include the crazy road side attractions too, those are often alot of fun! Help me plan my next trip!!
*Tea (I especially enjoy chai, and fruit flavored teas. The "relaxing" tea is also a favorite! I really like white teas or teas with subtle flavors. I am not a fan of black tea) Berryblossom White, from TAZO it is a white tea!!! Absolutely my favorite, I can't get it in my small town

*a handwritten/typed page of encouragement. I get overwhelmed sometimes and need a bit of cheering up. It would be really great to have a small jar/etc, with different encouragements that I could pick one out of when Im feeling down.
*candles- I really like the fresh smelling ones, the ones that smell like rain or fresh laundry...I also like apple spice/apple cinnamon if it is in the winter months.
*zines. Made by you or not. Some day I will write my own perzine but until then, I need lots of inspiration.

For the postcard swaps, I prefer store bought only. Please send only 4x6 size so that I can add to my collection. Tourst-y are great, anything that says something about your state, location, country any of that I would love. I love bright colors, and scenery, and nature and anything that really gives me a sense of where I am (well where the postcard is!!) I want to see what all the world has to offer, and I live vicariously through the postcards you send. Feel free to include the crazy roadside attraction cards also. I am an active member of postcrossing and I love getting postcards in the mail. If you live in a different country, could you write the word "Believe" in your language on the card for me, this would mean alot to me!! :) I prefer them to be naked (not in an envelope) written on and stamped! Thank you alot :)
*If it is an animal postcard swap I would really love to have a postcard of an animal that is special to your area. For example if you live in Louisiana maybe a Gator, or if you live in Colorado maybe a Moose...you get the idea. Something specific to where you live!!
*animals - see above
*bodies of water
*cards that show the seasons
*I WOULD LOVE SO MUCH IF YOU SEND A CARD WITH BIG LETTERS OF YOUR CITY AND STATE WITH A PICTURE IN EACH LETTER!
Tags I am waiting for
Things that I dislike in no particular order include:
*things that smell like smoke -- my youngest son has severe asthma and I do what I can to avoid his triggers. (not trying to offend any one!)
*anything banana flavored-artificial or real- my youngest son is allergic to them and I like to share with my children.
*kawaii, diddle or other cutesy stuff. I am not against it if you are into that, I just am not a collector of those type of things.
