DUE TO SOME VERY PERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCES I WILL NO LONGER BE SWAPPING. I AM SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THIS CAUSES ANYONE
I am a young woman from Salt Lake City, Utah. I have lived here most of my life except for a short stint living in the Caribbean while volunteering for Planned Parenthood. Currently I am a student of Literature, and I would like to eventually get my Library Sciences degree so I can spend my days surrounded by dusty old books and chastising small children (I kid). I recently married my best friend and longterm boyfriend; we have two four legged children, our dogs Max and Abner. I have an obsession with anything and everything vintage or antique. I love old movies, music, clothes, architecture, books et cetera. This obsession leads me to spending many hours perusing thrift stores, garage and estate sales. I love the thrill of finding a hidden treasure (or at least they are treasures to me). I love living near the mountains and I take opportunities to be outdoors as often as I can, preferably with friends or family. As with my other old fashioned interests I love snail mail and I have many pen pals; one of my pen pals directed me to swap-bot and I am excited to get started! My other loves include: Travel, Postcards, Tea, Wine, Gardening, Cooking, Crafting, Reading, Film, Adventure...
It's hard for me to pin down a certain genre that I love the most and my tastes are all over the place. I love music, I need music...
