Hello everyone♥

"I think we can all do better." - Jim Jefferies

Hi, I'm Diane and here are some general things about me as a person. I'm a pluviophile which means I love rain/thunderstorms. I feel that my energy calms and balances during times of either. I'm also a Libra so balance means a lot to me.

I represent the best HP house ----> Slytherin.

I am married to @GryffindorJen , living in Saint Louis, Missouri with our doggo Bronson♥. While Saint Louis has become the murder capital of the USA on paper, I found an online review of my city by a Canadian. I'm so proud to be from here, especially in the city "proper", and not the suburbs. While I'd be lying to say it's one of the ten safest cities, I could never call anywhere else my home.

I am a hockey fanatic who loves photography, music, postcards, and all animals but especially polar bears.

Comment: This is the BEST swap I ever done! Thank you for hosting it and sending the quotes. I really enjoy this swap! I didn't read them yet (waiting for all of them to arrive) but they are ready in my jar. I'm sure that a quote will be helpful when I'll be struggling (and it happens a lot). Thanks for trying to make the world (and at least mine!) a better place =) Btw your letter wasn't arrived until today, so it wasn't picked up yet and I just found it in my mail box after a looong and unpleasant air fligh. Your letter was a beautiful gift that made me smile! =)
Response: I am humbled by the rating. Thanks for your kind words and enjoying even the thought of the swap. It means so very much to me. ♥♥♥♥

Yes! One of my absolute fave songs. That movie led me to discover Aqualung (who I love his music!) Check his music out some time too. The CD is definitely worth getting :)

sassafrass on Jun 3, 2019:

I noticed before and meant to comment .. I don't recall anyone, ever, mentioning Wicker Park! That was a great movie. I still have the soundtrack CD and listen to it on a regular basis :)
