Incoming letter two was from my lovely friend Lindsey...the first letter from a "real life" friend! I was so excited and wrote her back already. We won't be writing much longer though, since we'll be reunited in the same city in just a few weeks!

Incoming letter three was from Lucas. He's practically my neighbor, considering he lives just an hour and a half north of me and seemed very familiar with the town I'm living in this summer! Maybe I'm easily impressed, but I thought it was so cool that he wrote his letter on a typewriter. I wouldn't know what to do with a typewriter if somebody put it in front of me. I'm really looking forward to keeping up with this new pen pal, though!
Incoming letter four was from Anna. I saw on Anna's blog that she had an outgoing letter coming my way earlier this week, so I've been excitedly awaiting its arrival. Today, as I stood at the edge of the driveway (promptly at 4:40 p.m.) waiting for my postie, I crossed my fingers that it would arrive...and it did--along with two postcards! (See below.) I loved the beachy envelope Anna decorated for me and am so excited to respond.

Postcrossing update-- I got two postcards! So far, five people have received my postcards and I have received two myself. One of my postcards was from Rose in Canada (yay international mail!) and the other was from Susan in Philadelphia. This might be the start of a beautiful hobby...
One other thing- I began an email pen pal friendship this week. It began as me sending my first Postcrossing card to a stranger in the Netherlands, and it has turned into a fast friendship! After she emailed me thanking for my letter, I sent her a long response and our conversation started there. We've found we have so much in common and I am so thrilled to get to know my new friend Henrike better!
