Spent some time on the Beach at Wildwood NJ. Came home relaxed and ready to go back. (Sept 7-12th '23)
Christmas '22. To all my wonderful swap partners, I feel so blessed to have met you either at the mailbox or even some, in person. I had such enjoyment opening up Christmas cards from you all, gifts and messages you sent. For 2023 I plan to return to my pen paling roots. Its such a peace of mind to see positivity in my mailbox rather a bill/advertisement. Don't you think so too? Send me a private message if you want to correspond. Peace be with you in 2023.

*** 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. Lived in Michigan from 2012 till 2020. It is when I signed up for swap-bot, hence my name Misplaced from PA. In the spring of 2020, Justin got a new job that took us back to Pennsylvania, but this time into the mountains. We are very excited about it. I have 3 children, Ben (1995) Alexis (1996) and Troy (2002). We have several cats. Luna is currently living with my daughter but will find her way to Pennsylvania by the Spring of '23. Miss Prissy LOVES the outdoors and rarely spends anytime inside. Who knew since he (yes, Miss Prissy is a he) was always an inside cat. Star, aging gracefully, doesn't dare leave the comfort of our home. She naps most of the day away.
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 play PoGo (Pokemon Go) with my youngest son. Here is my code to friend me. 5434 1049 0105
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.
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.

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.
