I love stamps. I sell postage stamps for a living!
Please tell me your thoughts on the CoronaVirus Covid-19 Pandemic. Are you afraid? Do you think your country is doing enough to fight it? How has this virus affected your life?
I was born in California and have lived in North Dakota, Alabama, Maryland (near Washington D.C.), Iowa, and now Minnesota. (My dad was a pilot in the US Air Force). I majored in Film Studies and History at the University of Iowa, became a Social Studies Teacher, then an immigration paralegal for 6 years. I opened my own vintage postage shop on Etsy in 2012. Check it out at EdelweissPost.com.
I got married in August 2011 to the most incredible, loving, sweet, cerebral, honest, man I know! (btw, I made vintage postage stamp bunting for our wedding cake, from my grandpa's collection, which you can see on our wedding video has been seen over 45,000 times on Vimeo~ Here's a link to it:
Our marriage became legal on August 12th, 2013 - thanks to the Minnesota State Legislature and our U.S. Supreme Court, which overturned DOMA!!!!
We have a 1 year old Irish Terrier named Georgie Girl. She is a little red devil, I mean angel.
My favorite things in no particular order:
STAMPS! LOTS of STAMPS!

Casablanca, Bringing Up Baby, How to Steal A Million, Houseboat, The African Queen, GOONIES, Tin Cup, Mary Poppins, Rush Hour, It's A Wonderful Life, You Can't Take It With You, Summer Magic, The Maltese Falcon, CHARADE, Desk Set, Entrapment, The Philadelphia Story, Indiana Jones, Roman Holiday, To Catch A Thief, Grumpy Old Men, Grumpier Old Men, and the list goes on.
What are you thoughts about Donald Trump as President of the United States?
About yourself, what you do, what your passion is, YOUR SECRETS (I won't tell anyone...), something interesting about your town, city or country: its history, politics, architecture, or what its famous for. Local flavor! I've only been to four other countries: Canada, Mexico, Italy, and Ireland (twice).
(p.s. I LOVE vintage postcards and interesting stamps! I also like mail art and "postcards" made out of stuff/packaging that you would usually throw away. Cut something out in the shape of a postcard and mail it to me. I will smile.)
