My name is Christina and I am a mother and a wife living in the state of Texas in the United States. My son is 19 years old and is soon starting his 2nd year of college. We also have two sweet indoor cats living in our home. My true passion is to travel! I last traveled to Bulgaria and Serbia and next will go to Norway and Finland. I am making plans to take a train from China to France in 2019--I am excited to travel through the beautiful country of Russia! I also love to cook and bake, read books, spend time in nature and have good and thoughtful conversations with others. I generally love to learn and I think that each day of life is an opportunity to do so!
I sincerely value each postcard and envelope sent to me! It simply makes me happy to go to my mailbox and see something addressed and written to me and I like to imagine that others must feel the same way when I send mail to them! I am completely happy with any postcard so no pressure to send anything specific but here are simply some ideas of things that I would love:
♥ real or painted snow scenes
♥ churches, mosques or monasteries
♥ kings/queens/royalty of your country
♥ famous historical figures of your country
♥ trains or buses
♥ beautiful paintings/art
♥ people in traditional clothing of your country
♥ food or recipes from your culture and/or country
♥ fruits, vegetables and grains
♥ anything related to the Balkan nations (I would love to receive an old Yugoslavia postcard!)
♥ coffee or tea
♥ birds (I would love to receive postcards of owls, ravens or crows!)
♥ acorns, chestnuts or pinecones
♥ meaningful quotes
♥ Victorian era scenes or people
♥ Matryoshka dolls
♥ Pippi Longstocking (A childhood favorite of mine!)
♥ mail related cards (postbox, post office, stamps, etc.)
♥ peace and global togetherness
♥ cartoons from your country
♥ fantasy creatures (fairies, elves, trolls, etc.)
I really love the idea of receiving a postcard in an envelope along with something from your part of the world--something like a train ticket, newspaper ad, recipe, travel brochure or tea! I understand that this is voluntary and not a required part of this project but if you don't mind doing it then I would be more than happy to send some mail back your way if you legibly write your address on the envelope--let's fill each other's mailboxes! A "naked postcard" outside of the envelope is perfect too so no worries either way--I will love whatever you send! A greeting card or a written note or something of that sort is okay with me too--I love to receive any kind of happy mail!
Wishing you the best and looking forward to seeing you in my mailbox!
