About Me


My name is Elba and I am 31 years old. I am from Guadalajara, Mexico, but I've been living in Freiburg Germany for the past 3 1/2 years. I love writing letters, I think it's a lost art. I can speak english or spanish (maybe a little bit of german), so if you want to write in any of those languages, it's fine by me.

I am happily married, and have been for the past 3 years. I really like this new life: me being a housewife, cooking dinner and stuff. It's very different from the life I had in Mexico, where I had a full time job and lived with my parents. I am really happy with my life at this moment, and I would like to spread some of this happiness that I have :)

Things I like!

  • Dogs! I am crazy about them.
  • Food, I really like to eat, specially mexican!
  • Drinking tea
  • Gin tonics and martinis
  • Stationery with flowers or bows.
  • Nail art
  • Envelopes

  • Design

  • My dream is to be able to touch and carry a baby panda!
  • Paper crafts like smash books or scrapbooking
  • Vintage flowers

  • Puzzles
  • Glitter
  • Religions (I sometimes feel that they separate people instead of bringing them together)

  • Apples
  • Barbie
  • Corny things
  • Clowns
  • Bugs

Favorite Music
