I love getting mail. I always have. 10 years ago I learned about a thing called “postcrossing” – you sign up, request a location to send a postcard to, send it, and then (typically) get one in return. To date I’ve sent out 57 postcards and received 56 in return, from all over the world. Sometimes it has taken my postcard a bit to get there (or for me to receive it) but in most cases there hasn’t been any issues. It’s something I keep tucked away in a box, one year I’m hoping to talk to my kids about all of these different locations in the world and how we’re all sharing the earth but traditions differ. I love getting these little surprises in my mailbox and every once in a while I make sure to blog about it for those who may not have ever heard of the program before. It’s almost like having temporary penpals. I’ve also gotten some really interesting stamps from all of these letters too.
