Post crossing // awesomness

(all my cards and then my favorite ones i sent)

Hey guys! I hope you are having a spectacular weekend!
I just popped down to Eugene for the weekend but thought I would stop in and let you all know about one of the coolest things ever!
A few weeks ago I came across this website called Postcrossing! It is a site that hooks you up with people from all over the world through post cards. What? How does it work you ask? Well, after you sign up you are given your first address. You can look at the persons profile and learn a little bit about them and then you send them a postcard. Once the recieve it the enter the card ID you have written on it and then it shows up on your map as one of the places you have sent to. You can have up to five cards out traveling at a time. And once your first card is entered into the system, your address is then sent to some one and you start receiving cards. You can costomize where you want to send to or receive from. And if you want to swap back and forth with the same person at all. It really is a cool and fun concept, and did i mention FREE to join. I just sent out my first batch of cards and cant wait for every one to get my little hellos. I sent one to China, Germany, two to Russia and one to the east coast here in the US. How cool!
I am so excited to get my first one and start my new collection!
Go check it out!

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
