Hi there! I can't wait to get your postcard!
My big news is that I'm pregnant!! We are having a little girl in September. Please send name suggestions.
I appreciate beautiful stamps, artistic cards, bright colors, and anything creative that you want to add. I like all sorts of themes, so don't worry too much about it. I will be happy with whatever you send!
I'd love to read about you or something that you like the most. Or tell me a secret! The best part of Postcrossing is learning about other people and holding something in my hand that has traveled so far.
My name is Jessica. I live in Chicago, with my husband Daniel (who is from England), our 2 year old son, Dylan, and our fluffy little dog, Ivy. We are happy going on long walks in our neighborhood and beyond, in search of parks and playgrounds.
I work from home as a software developer. My son goes to "school" at a local daycare and I miss him every day. We live in an apartment in the city, but are dreaming of moving to the country, or at least a suburb, someday. For those familiar with the states, I grew up outside Boston, spent my twenties in Philadelphia, and am now a Chicagoan. I have a twin sister who lives in San Francisco, one brother in Baltimore, and one brother + my parents in Providence, RI. And of course, all of my husband's family is in England. We are spread out!
I have traveled a bit to other countries (Chile, NZ, Australia, Mexico, Costa Rica, Canada, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, France, England, Ireland, Spain) and all over the US. I'm eager to visit many countries of Asia and Africa someday, and worry that I'll miss my chance.
