About Me

Hello, I'm Erika

Update May 2024: I have closed my PO Box. My family and I are moving out of Florida this summer, so I will update my address when I know where we're going.

I am 38. I live in Florida currently, but have spent the majority of my life in Kansas and Chicago, IL. I love nature, but I unfortunately do not like hot weather 🥵.

My favorite time of year is fall/autumn. I love when the weather cools down, when the leaves change colors, and that crisp feeling in the air. I also really love all the fall colors.

I have a yellow lab named Daphne. When we lived in Kansas, we had horses, chickens, and cattle. I love goats, but have never owned one. I love animals and living in the country.

Family is very important to me. I am married with 3 kids, one girl and two boys. My husband is a physicist, and I am a nurse. I speak, read, and write English and Swedish (but my Swedish isn't great).

In my spare time (when I'm not working or chasing my kids around), I like to cross stitch, read (books, ebooks, audiobooks), make paper crafts, watch/listen to Dungeons & Dragons games, ride my bicycle, and hike.

I am open to receiving handmade or vintage postcards rather than store bought. I prefer unusual or unique things over cookie-cutter.

Specific Things I LOVE

Chicken decorations (stickers, washi, notepads, pens, bookmarks) - Any kind of hens or roosters

Goat decorations (they're so adorable, even if they are a bit smelly. Haha)

Cow decorations (we had black Angus cattle, but I think all cows are cute/beautiful)

Yellow lab decorations (stickers, washi, notepads, pens)

Anything blue (my favorite color)

Notepads that are unusual or fun

Pretty notecard sets (notecard and envelope)

washi tape

fun shape/color/design post-its (sticky notes)

page flags

stickers

Type 1 diabetes awareness items

new (unused stamps) -- I can ALWAYS use these

decorated envelopes

Rubber/silicone stamps

cute/decorative/unusual ink pens

Frixion erasable ink pens

I really like strange/quirky things!

COLORS:

BLUE is my favorite color, but I also like the following:

FALL colors (think of the colors of the leaves/forest in the fall)

Ocean Colors (think blue, green, aqua, tan, etc)

DISLIKES: I'm not really fond of neon/hot colors

Comment: Hi Erika ! Thanks for everything ! My mom decided to move to France when I was 7ish I think, so I'm in the same position as you are, I understand nothing about german swiss language (weirdest thing in the world) ! I speak french and english and I'm learning russian because I wanted to learn a funny alphabet, but I really should be learning german instead lol, I also understand italian and spanish pretty well but can't speak it ! Oh and I'm trying to learn sign language, I really want to learn it to be fluent because nobody speaks it in hospitals here in france, what a shame ! Anyway, have a beautiful day and say hi to Daphne from Lucky and I ! :)

Comment: Beautiful card, Thank You! Yep, I do like pansies... and my favorite flower is whatever is blooming! Laughs! We have several varieties of Lupines that grow wild here, too... In fact, a butterfly thought to be extinct was recently rediscovered, and they are trying to increase the number of Kincaid Lupines, which are the only one the little caterpillars like to eat! :)
