Hi there! My name is Erin and I live in the Pine Barrens section of NJ, about 13 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. I live with my husband and three children, two boys and a girl. They range in age from six to twelve. :)We are a very outdoorsy family- you will find us at the beach, going hiking, enjoying parks and playgrounds and nature in general. I was born and raised within walking distance of the beach and it's still my favorite place to be. :)
I consider myself a sun worshipper. I am really into surfing and surf culture. I love the warmth of the sun, the scent of brine and the sound of gulls. :). I'm very outgoing. Some of my best friends are people I met randomly while out and about. I also love the beach at night, as well as sitting on my deck and watching bats fly overhead and looking at the stars. We grill a lot when the weather is good. :)
I am a huge bookworm. I love ancient history (Rome, Egypt, Syria, Iran, India, etc), genetics (particularly ancient genetics and the modern distribution of genetic lines), true crime, medieval Europe, pop science, etc. I also like fiction such as vampire novels, mysteries, beach reads, young adult novels, classics, etc. I would be lost without my books.
Other random things I like include Japanese Lucky Cat (Maneki Neko), the sun, moon or stars, flamingos and anything tropical, sea creatures, blond men, guys with long hair, Romania, anything related to vampires, bats, frogs, castles, green tea frappuchinos, cooking, desserts, bird watching ,bluebirds, parrots, pandas, flowers, unicorns, dragons, vikings, knights, skull stuff, Edvard Munch, Caspar Peteus, umbrellas and rain gear, the 80s, 1984 Voltron, etc. My kids like video games, Pokemon, Yokai Watch, Shopkins and My Little Pony. :) Well, we all like My Little Pony. ;) I still have all my original ponies and would totally squeal upon receiving a pony card. Lol.
We have four cats and we also care for a colony of friendly ferals. We're definitely cat people. ;)🐈
If you don't know what to send, may I recommend a tourist/view card, anything that matches my (or kids) interests, anything from my favorites, something pink or yellow or brightly colored, a tad goth or a cat illustration? I'm pretty easy to please. 😸 I just like getting fun mail. 🐱
Enough about me! Tell me about you!! I can't wait to see you in my mailbox! ;) Please no ad cards, political cards or folded cards in envelopes. :) Handmade cards welcome. :) Thank you! Happy Postcrossing!🐸
