I am a school librarian and have a degree in Cultural Anthropology.
I love beautiful picture books. (Kinuko Craft and Kay Nielsen are a few favorite artists.) My husband and I enjoy trying new restaurants and eating foods from around the world (he lived in France and Algeria growing up and I lived in Germany, so perhaps that helped create our adventurous palettes). I really like the steampunk stuff and dressing up and making costumes. I love to travel and if I had more moolah I'd jet off hither and yon constantly. My dream is to visit Greece on a Mediterranean cruise! Every year I throw an official High Tea for friends and pull out all the stops. So la-de-dah! I enjoy playing hostess.
I've been sending postcards to friends and family since I was a wee one and was very excited to find this website!
I'd love something beautiful or interesting (I really like fairy tale artwork). And a Gotochi postcard from Japan would be fantastic! If you feel so inclined, let me know a favorite book (I'm a mystery lover - thanks to Agatha Christie; and if you want a hearty laugh, try "Three Men in a Boat" by Jerome K. Jerome - written in 1889 and still hilarious!) and/or tell me a favorite treat (pastries, I adore you!)...I look forward to "globe trot" through the mail.
Thank you for spending the time, money, and effort to send some joy to my postbox. =D

I also like tunes that lift me up and make me happy:
Check out: The Beach by Cannons; Blueless Bird by Joni; Waltz for Koop by Koop; In the Ashes by Late Night Alumni (singer from Utah!); I Get the Message by Ivy; City of Love by Persephones Bees; I Was Born to Love Her by Stevie Wonder; Goodbye by Echosmith; Miracles (Someone Special) by Coldplay (and Big Sean).....so many more!
