Update 7/28/2020: COVID-19 is very bad in the US--over 4.3 million cases and 150,000 deaths. We have what is called "uncontrolled spread" and it is a scary time. I am staying indoors and wearing a mask when I go out (very infrequent). I am still only checking the mail twice a week.
Update 3/29/2020: Due to coronavirus COVID-19 widespread in my area I am only checking my mail twice a week. I apologize for the delay in registering your card.
Hi! My name is Adrienne. I live in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. I like to cook vegetarian (vegan) food, hike in the woods, write letters, ride my bike, watch birds, bake cakes, host parties, and study programming languages.
Thank you for sending me a card! I am looking forward to hearing about your day. Did you work, study, rest, or play? Did you listen to any music or read a book? Do you have a word or phrase that guides you? In Postcrossing, what makes you happier: sending or receiving?

As you can see, I love animals! Especially animals who are commonly feared or misunderstood. Fear often comes from misunderstanding. These animals do not want to hurt you. They might be weird looking, but they are probably more afraid of you than you are afraid of them. :)
Mail art / postal art / correspondence art is ok!
Hand-made is ok!
Envelopes are ok!
я буду рада получить открытки из России с переводом!
Japanese friends. I recently received a bat card by Ichiyusai KUNIYOSHI (1797-1861).
It is one of my all-time most favorite cards.
Expired cards: it is disappointing to send a card that expires. I have sent cards that never arrived and people have sent me cards that never arrived. But I try to remember that we are sending small pieces of paper across vast distances, and sometimes they get lost. I don't list expired cards with a Postcrossing member's username on my profile because I would not want anyone to think I am upset with the user for the card not arriving.
Thank you for your card ♥
