For me, this year is a year of recovery and discovery! Last July I suffered a stroke and have had to learn to read and write again....Postcrossing has helped me practice my writing. I have learned a lot about myself and the people who care for me this year. I have discovered that I am far more resilient than I would ever guess...I am grateful for every journey my life leads me on...and Postcrossing has given me something to focus on and enjoy.
This is a wonderful video showing my part of the world entitled "Born to wonder" enjoy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gc7yOOMk_2w
Here is another great video about our town...this one is a little funny too!
We live in the south central part of British Columbia. The Okanagan valley is also called the "desert of Canada". Our temperatures in the summer can go up to +40C and in the winter can go down to -40C. We get snow every winter, but some are whiter than others. Our town is a tourist spot as people love the beaches of Lake Okanagan and the skiing at BIG WHITE ski slopes.

I have been married 30 years last October. We met in high school when I was 15 and he was 17 ( you can say we actually grew up together and we been together 35 years now). We have 2 grown children and share our home with 1 dog and 2 cats. Our son was married last September.
I enjoy reading, writing and doing crafts. I recently got a three wheel bike and look forward to being able to ride it around soon. I love the 4 seasons we have here. Spring is so full of flowers and Summer is warm and bright...Fall is my favorite season, I love the cool air and colours of the changing season. Winter is usually clean and white, crisp and cold.
May I first and foremost express that I am willing to swap, but the one and only thing I am willing to swap are postcards. Postage in Canada, to international countries, is very expensive so I am not able to send more than a postcard. Please do not message me with requests for teabags, money (banknotes or coins), seeds or magnets etc.I will not be able to do it. Thank you.
I would be more than happy with most postcards.(I do NOT enjoy typical tourist postcards,advertising and rude cards), but if you'd like some suggestions, I would love to see:
- cards with bright colours (THIS IS MY FAVORITE)
- cards with things that are meaningful to you
-cards that make you happy
One of my favourite quotes is:
"Always listen to your heart. It's on your left side but it will always be RIGHT."
