About Alyssa

Hi, I’m so glad you stopped by! If you were wondering about the Alyssa behind Alyssa’s Letters, that’s me.

I love finding beauty in the every-day, heart-to-hearts over cake and cappuccinos, homemade brunch to celebrate the weekend, strolling up and down cobblestone streets with nowhere to be, spontaneous weekend trips and family cuddles on the couch.

I was born and raised in the U.S. and have been living in my German husband’s homeland since I graduated high school. That’s actually where Matthis and I met when he was a foreign exchange student there in 2009. We married in 2012 and welcomed our son into the world in 2017. Now, Baby #2 is a-cookin’ and we’ll be caring for two und two starting this summer.

Why Alyssa’s Letters?
There are 26 letters in the English alphabet. My passion is to spend way too much time arranging and rearranging them to form words and sentences that give a language to the thoughts and feelings swirling around in my heart and mind. My hope is that reading my letters might help you find your own or give language to things you might have experienced as well, but were never quite able to put into words.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me. I’d love to hear from you!
