*If you receive a card from me with a long white sticker on it, please know that it can easily be peeled off without damaging the card!
Hello! I'm Emily. Please write my first name, I also started my dad on Postcrossing and we live together. I'm from Wisconsin in the Midwestern US. It's the land of cheese, beer & Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
I went to school for literature, creative writing, and German language which I studied for about 7 years. My family is mainly German-American on both sides but I have distant Swedish relatives and Armenian & Chinese uncles through marriages.
Wenn Sie koennen, bitte schreiben Sie mir auf Deutsch, sodass ich üben kann. Ich würde das wirklich lieben! Ich will meine Fähigkeit nicht verlieren.
I like photography, reading and writing poetry, nature, animals, listening to music, watching ice hockey, and learning about other places & cultures. I love to travel but often don't have the money. I've been to India, Spain, France, Italy, Switzerland, Monaco, Germany, Austria, Canada & much of the US. I wish I could see the whole world! You can help me do this with your card :)

I will be happy with most anything, but please no Touchnote or similar services, no ads unless they're artistic/vintage or funny, & PLEASE write on the cards! Tell me about yourself, where you're from, or what's on the card. I also like interesting stamps, stickers or drawings if you don't know what to say. I prefer no envelopes unless you feel it's necessary to protect the card.
Thank you & Happy Postcrossing!
