In The Beginning...

Hi, Y'all.

I'm Wolfidy, a 23 year old army wife currently living in fort Lewis, WA. I have always enjoyed snail mail and recently joined http://www.postcrossing.com ...only to become quickly obsessed with postcards!

So here we go creating yet another blog to document all the postcards that come through...not just the postcrossing ones.

Anyway, without further ado...

The first one I received was from Jenny in OR:
That's Mt. Hood on there. Pretty, huh? Maybe we can drive down there sometime and go camping... Despite me being unsure about camping, hubby insists that it's fun and says I'm going to go next summer whether I want to or not. (This was a postcrossing card!)

Several days later, I got post card from my friend Kim, who had recently gone on a trip to Las Vegas:
I've never gone to Las Vegas. It looks like fun. Hopefully I can swing a weekend with my friends sometime later next year. :D

The next card came about because of my snooping around Postcrossing. I was randomly clicking through user profiles and found a lady who's husband just left for basic training. That was really a hard time for me, so when I found she openly posted her address on her blog, I decided to send her a postcard. About a week later, I got one in reply:
That's Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah as rendered by William Carr. That looks like a lot of snow! And I thought it was cold here in Washington! Pretty, though. Maybe one day I will visit when there's not so much snow.

And the most recent postcard I have received, I got it just yesterday is a postcrossing card from a different Jenny in CO:
It got a little beat up in the mail, but it's still pretty cool. It's views of Mesa County, CO. The back of the postcard says the top left is Mt. Garfield and Canada Geese, the top right is Rattlesnake Canyon, Akiti Arch, the bottom left is Independence Monument, and the bottom right is Grand Mesa. Definately looks like it would be a cool place to check out. Hubby has family in CO so who knows, maybe someday we can go.

That's all I've got for now. Hope to be back soon with more to share! ^.^
