Hello, dear swappers,
I'm Anna, I'm from Moscow, Russia, mother of 2 little girls, 4 y.o. and 2 y.o. and an editor in a small publishing house.
From my childhood I like writing letters and sending packages to my friends and relatives. Mailbox is one of my favouritest things in my home:)) And I like to find pleasant surprises in it on the mornings:))
Reading is my another passion. I like Scandinavian sagas and fairytales, Virginia Woolf novels and victorian diaries, nature journals and illustrated kids books, books about girls, cookbooks and crafting magazines. And my absolute favourite is memoires about happy childhood. If you can recommend me such memoires from your country I'll be very glad.
