About Me

2019 is passing so quickly. Fall is here and brought along pleasing cooler weather.
Updated 09-25-19

If ever you get to Michigan and want to meet up, I have always enjoyed get togethers with fellow swap-bot addicts. Brunch/supper or whatever. Just contact me.

Updated August 6, 2018. My son has a beautiful bride. Their wedding was full of emotions. I cried happy tears when she walked down the aisle, said their vows, and danced the son-mother dance. I am so proud of them. Memorable items that happened were: The fire alarm went off in the church during the reception (deafening) and the mens bathroom toilet actually cracked and water flooded out into the reception (was it that person ate too much earlier? LOL ) All in all, I can say it was the best wedding I have ever attended. Congrats to Amy and Ben (Aug 4, 2018)

***OMG I am giving a gigantic praise to @Pianoheart for a surprise of 21 cassette tapes. (yes, I wrote 21) She did not know this, but my husband lived in Hawaii for 6 years and she sent alot of Hawaiian music. She is a true blessing and a wonderful soul. I cannot thank her enough for sending such joy to us.

Happy New Year 2018!

I finished my 500th swap on Sept 8th 2017. Am having so much fun sending out smiles to everyone.

In these past few weeks, I have gotten international mail WAY after it has been sent. One took a month, the other longer than 8 weeks. I do believe even our mail wants to vacation a bit.

May all have a very blessed 2017

My newest niece, Amelia Love McDivitt was born on 7-20-16. So tiny and perfect.

On Mothers Day '16, My oldest son, Ben proposed to his girlfriend of 5 years. She said YES. I will be so happy to have her for a daughter. Sweet, kind and loving. A July 2018 wedding being planned.

*** If you don't receive a swap from me when I note that I sent it, please notify me ASAP so I can resend it. It is not my personality to flake. Never have, and don't intend to start. My word is my bond. Swapping means too much to me to flake. I LOVE bringing joy to others.

Born and raised in the countryside of Lancaster County, PA (amongst horse & buggies and rolling hills). Lived/studied in Dusseldorf, Germany (1988) Also did the Eurorail (it was a 30 day long train travel pass in which I backpacked through 10 countries) that summer (to celebrate my 20th birthday). 1990-1991 lived in Figueira da Foz, Portugal. Settled back in Lancaster in '91 and got married. Divorced in 2010 after 19 years. Found love again in 2011 and married Justin in 2012. We now live in Michigan. I have 3 children, Ben (1995) Alexis (1996) and Troy (2002). I have several indoor cats, Luna, Ms Priss (indoor during winter months only), Mr Dingles & Puma. The later 2 are my daughters. As of 10-20-17, the stray cat we feed, finally got the nerve to come into our home and now he/she comes in to eat and sleep a little beside us on the sofa before he wants out again. He is black and we call him Minx.

In my spare time I enjoy walking, baking/cooking new recipes, flower gardening (I have a friendship garden that I have gotten transplants from many friends--you can add too it if you like), traveling, Atlantic Beach Time, antique and thrift store shopping, swapping almost anything and pen paling internationally.

I wear size 7 or 7 1/2 shoes, 5 ft tall since 6th grade and funsize in life. Long hair which I enjoy wearing up. I am all natural--no hair dye (love my silver streaks life has highlighted me with), no make up (though I may be seen with mascara or blush), no tattoos and only have my ears pierced once (seems odd now days).

I enjoy www.wheresgeorge.com with my user name Michelle His Belle.

I also am a part timer in Geocaching. My name there is Mstracker. I go with my brother when I visit him and he tracks them and I just totally forget too. I gotta change that!

My favorite holiday is Christmas. I decorate immensely. I mail out over 200 Christmas cards. If you mail me one, I always mail a return. It is always a pleasure meeting new people.

Thank-you for taking the time to get to know me. Hopefully I can get to know you. Peace and Love.

Favorite Music

I listen to Country, Pop and Classical (we have this on while we eat dinner). I don't like RAP or Jazz. Lately, I have been listening to Celtic and New Age music to write my pen pals. It's very calming to the soul.

*John Denver

On a short note

I am extremely easy to please. I prefer quality over quantity. And LOVE unique items found in gift stores or gently used items from a consignment/thrift store. To get a hand written note or short letter with my swaps mean the world to me--letting me realize you targeted me and not just the swap requirements.

Postcard Preference

I am starting to enjoy these. I really like touristy and unique ones. Funny ones catch me and I place them on my wall to enjoy all year. I also like holiday cards (Easter, Christmas etc). At this time, I have no dislikes.
