About Me

France is finally coming out of our third lockdown, so slowly going to try a few swaps again

Bonjour tout le monde!

I am 30 years old, and I have been living in France for over three years now. I was born and raised in SW Michigan, so it has been quite an adjustment! City life has been pretty amazing though.

When I first moved to France we lived right in the middle of Paris, almost right next to where my husband went to college. That place was only meant for one person though, let alone two + pets! So in July 2019 we took a look at the suburbs, and got extremely lucky with an apartment. We now live in Neuilly-sur-Seine, and are much happier! You can even see the Arc du Triomphe from our street, so it only takes a few minutes to be back in the city.

When I moved I also brought my two chinchillas, Apa & Pikachu, with me. They have certainly become well traveled in the past few years! In the new place there is a lot more room for us to let them out in, so I am sure they are enjoying that.

In September 2018 we added a Ragdoll cat to the family. His name is Ori, and he is absolutely huge! He turned three on April 6th of this year. He is a beautiful boy!

Most recently we have adopted a tiny tortie girl. We brought her home on July 25th 2020, and she now rules the cat tree! After much debate we ended up naming her Tortellini. She will be three in September 2021.

Bonne journée and happy swapping!

Favorite Movies

I really enjoy the Marvel universe movies. They've become extremely predictable and formulaic, but I still like them.

Ghibli movies will always have a special place in my heart. I remember renting My Neighbor Totoro as a child.

As for some general movies:

  • The Crow (1994)

  • As Above So Below (2014)

  • Edward Scissorhands (1990)

  • Midnight in Paris (2011)

  • Les Miserables (2012)

  • It (2017)

  • Lights Out (2016)

  • Equilibrium (2002)

  • The Mummy (1999)

  • The Haunting (1999)

  • Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse

My husband and I love to watch crappy horror movies on Netflix too.

Favorite Television

  • Masterchef, Masterchef Junior, & Masterchef Australia

  • RuPaul's Drag Race/ Drag Race Thailand/ Drag Race UK/ Drag Race Canada/ and every other spin-off they make

  • Pokémon

  • What We Do in the Shadows

  • The Umbrella Academy

Things I Love to Do

  • Horseback Riding

  • Walking in parks and gardens

  • Enjoying time with my pets

  • Playing World of Warcraft or FFXIV with my husband

  • Wandering while playing Pokemon Go

  • Playing D&D and boardgames with friends

Postcard Info

I am completely fine with both naked & in an envelope postcards. I really don't have a preference.

I enjoy the following kinds of postcards:

  • Showcasing your town/country

  • Medieval

  • Animals

  • Macabre

  • Vintage

  • Art Nouveau (Alphonse Mucha)

  • Impressionism

  • Paintings

  • Pinup

  • Anything you send me!

If you're unsure of what to write on the pc, tell me a story/legend of your town, or country. I also like learning new words in other languages, so if you teach me one that's great!

! Attention !

If you have not received a swap from me please message me before rating. I always send out swaps on the date that I have marked them sent. I even take pictures of everything before I send it out. Things can get lost in the mail, especially with Covid delays, so if you have not received something I will be happy to resend!
