About Me

Profile last updated on: 5/17/19

Hi! 😀My name is Sarah. I live in Dallas. Grew up in Cali. Im a big believer in ‘you get back the same kind of energy and intention you put out into the world.” So I try to live as much as possible with gratitude and good intention each day.

Im 36 years old, no kids (except for the four-legged furry kind!),and in a committed relationship with the most incredible man, who Im still in awe the Universe blessed me with finding!

Am very spiritual, but not religious. Love learning and seeing and experiencing new things, and new people, and hearing their life stories, thus far. Ive had some tragedy in my life but its taught me how strong and resilient and resourceful I can be, when Ive had noone but myself to rely on, and it taught me how much I love life, so I try to find an “awe” moment in each day, something that catches my eye and makes me stop and appreciate the world around me!

I suffer from chronic pain so I don’t work a normal secular job. But I do make jewelry that I sell at quite a few boutiques and clothing stores in Cali & Texas, and I really love the creative outlet in that and the sense of accomplishment in getting to help contribute a bit to the household budget!

I love book stores, libraries, antique stores, outdoor markets, the beach, taking walks with my boyfriend, heck just watching Netflix with my guy is a good time! Lol. Also love doing day trips, experiencing new places, things, foods, people, etc. Love animals! Almost have the boyfriend won over on the idea of getting a cat! I like anything crafty. Mail art, painting, drawing, making handmade cards and envies, journaling supplies and embellishments by hand. And making jewelry. Love cooking homemade meals and an always looking for new recipes! Usually always have a book in my hand or nearby and several “in progress.” I volunteer at local food and animal shelters. And hmmm...can’t think of anything else at the moment but will add more as it comes to me. I’m really excited to get swapping here and hopefully make some new friends, I feel like kind of a fish out of water living in a new state after being in Cali my whole life this far so I’d love to maybe find some pen pals too!

Response: Glad you enjoyed it! I’m still in the thinking about stage of my declutter goal myself, lol.

Update 1/15/2019 : Good news, I received your swap today. And I must say you did a great job, I love the envie and the goodies. Thanks for that. So as promised I’m changing my rating after receiving, that are the rules here on swapbot. Thanks for the resend.
