Comment: Hi Kerstin! I am so sorry for this very late rating. I don't know what happened. In my planner this was marked rated, but the host just messaged me to say it wasn't. I went back and looked through my shoebox of letters and found the super cute Snoopy card you sent with a lovely note inside. Thank you so much for the swap, and I hope I can send you something soon to reciprocate. I'll be double checking to make sure this rating sticks! lol I hope you and your family are staying safe. <3 Christine
