Hello, My name is Emilie. I am currently doing my masters in French in Boston, but I grew up in Maryland and have spent some time in Wisconsin and Louisiana, so I have a strong affinity for those states. I love hearing about where people live, what is unique to that place, etc. In college I was a double major in French and Philosophy and I loved it! Grad school is not as fun. I love writing letters and sending things in the mail. I enjoy doing crafty things. I love animals, especially horses and dogs. My family in WI has 3 mules currently.
I love stamps, and I have been wanting to start buying extra to hoard for the future, but it never works.
