About Me

Mail is starting to become more normal again, so I'm going to dip my toes back into swapping

Bonjour tout le monde!

I am 29 years old, and I have been living in France for over two 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 two 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, and she's adjusted very quickly. Well, to everything except Ori! He's been a perfect gentleman, has given her space, and has not hissed or growled at her at all, but she's been hesitant to come around. They are finally starting to play together though, so that's promising! We finally settled on the name Andromeda for her, since she looks like a galaxy, but her nickname is Melon, or just Tiny Tortie. She will turn two in September.

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

  • Gotham

  • Whatever anime we are watching at the time

  • Hell's Kitchen

  • Castle Rock

  • The Haunting of Hill House

  • Pokémon

  • What We Do in the Shadows

  • The Umbrella Academy

Favorite Books

  • Dune by Frank Herbert

  • The Gunslinger by Stephen King

  • Pet Sematary by Stephen King

I read an enormous amount of books when I was in High School. I'm currently trying to rekindle that love of literature.

Things I Love to Do

  • Horseback Riding

  • Playing Magic: The Gathering (card game)

  • Walking in parks and gardens

  • Enjoying time with my chinchillas, Pikachu & Apa

  • Playing World of Warcraft or FFXIV with my husband

  • Wandering while playing Pokemon Go

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!

Comment: Loved your museum card of the Louis Vuitton foundation. Will add that must see on my next visit to France. Yes, you are correct. That photo is of the gardens at Versailles where I enjoyed a cup of the thickest hot chocolate I’ve ever eaten😂 Got to see the musical fountains attraction as well. Merci Beaucoup!
