I am including this message:
Hello from San Diego, California in the USA! I, too, play the piano! I mostly love playing Jazz and Baroque period pieces. This is a picture of one of our military aircraft carriers. Hope you enjoy it!
Jennifer and Robert
Did I mention she said she is a pianist? That's why I included that second sentence. I have played the piano since I was 7 years old. I don't have a piano of my own right now (we would never fit it into this small apartment); but I do dream of the day that I get to have my very own in my house again. I miss being able to just sit down and play any time I like.
Do you have a hobby like that?

I'm assuming I picked well since she had asked for a card she has never received. Not sure though.
You do know what this means, don't you? I will be sending another card shortly. Probably tonight...I don't know where it's going just yet. Talk to you later!

Along with this message:
Hello from San Diego, California. This is a picture of a carousel in Seaport Village (a great seaside shopping place). These horses are all handcrafted and hand painted. Plus they are constantly touched up to keep them in perfect condition.
Robert and Jennifer
I figured this was a great card because there is a definite artistry that goes with making all these horses. Each one hand crafted. No two the same. I have so many great memories riding this carousel as a child. You could never really get me off one of these. I still love these rides and will be the first to jump at any chance to take a niece, nephew, goddaughter, or ANYONE on their first, second, or 100th ride on a carousel.
The receiver wanted postcards of different places that she would enjoy visiting if she should come to visit. I knew which card I was going to send before I finished reading her profile. I love this postcard...
I sent it with this message:
Hello from San Diego! This card is of our Balboa Park. This is a very picturesque place to visit. Plus it's where you find many museums (including the world famous San Diego Zoo) and a great cultural experience. If you ever visit San Diego, you must go here!
Robert and Jennifer Ryan
Balboa Park, if you haven't been there, is a great location for anyone to visit (tourists and locals). There is so much to do. When I was a nanny, I used to take the little girl there every Saturday. We would watch the juggler, have picnic lunches, visit different museums (including the science museum that is all hands on), take in different cultures, and so much more.
On top of that, it is a GORGEOUS place to take pictures. It's such a fabulous place!
And the puppy on the stamp! Do you just want to cuddle with this little guy?
That looks like such a beautiful city, right? I LOVE the stamps, too.
Add to that, these stamps!
