For some reason when I got home from work yesterday I had the strongest urge to check my mailbox. Before taking my things inside I almost just left them in the car but thought no,no whatever is in that box can wait a minute or two until I take my things inside the house. So, I hurriedly took my things inside , sat them down in my computer chair then proceeded to the mailbox. And boy did I have the most wonderful surprise waiting for me inside - Nuri has sent me some postcards!!! And they are just so beautiful I can't get over how exciting it was for me to have and hold these postcards from someone so very far away and whom I have never met. I just love making these types of connections with people. And maybe one day we will go to Spain and who knows maybe we'd get to meet one another - the prospect of such an occurrence thrills me to no end. Vegas is just the beginning for me, I hope to venture abroad at some point in my life. Sooner rather than later would work for me! I just wanted to say thank you, thank you to Nuri again for brightening my day with this incredible gesture. I hope that in the future we can exchange postcards again. Girona & CadaquƩs
Check out the links above to learn about Nuri's hometown Girona and the surrounding city I also received a postcard from.
HELP ME ADD TO MY COLLECTION: If anyone is interested in sending me a postcard from your hometown or travel destination please send me an email & I will gladly forward my mailing address.
And in other news: Yesterday I also received a very generous birthday card from Cody's mom & dad which was a complete shock to me when I opened it. I was just delighted that she thought of me enough to send me a birthday card and I certainly didn't expect anything other than that once I opened it but boy was it a grand surprise indeed. I just want to say again to Lee & Craig thank you, thank you so much for your thoughtfulness; it really means a lot to me!

I didn't get to bed until 2:30am last night because I decided to wait until the very last minute to get packed and ready to hit the road. I surely hope we are not forgetting anything important. I'm sure I'll be re-running the check list in my head for the majority of the day and living so close to work is a good thing just in case!! I am truly excited and extremely nervous about the whole ordeal - I hope that everything goes well.
