Mail order birthdays

There are two good friends of mine with whom I frequently correspond via post.  Yes that's right:  good, old-fashioned snail mail.  And it just so happens that they both recently celebrated their birthdays!

Happy Birthday friends, from my side of the world to yours!

How do you keep in touch with friends who live far away?  I'd love to hear your stories.  Leave me a comment below!

Antique hunting through coastal Maine

Recently traveled South on Rt. 1 starting in Portland, Maine for an antiques road trip of sorts with my mom.  Was thrilled to see the story run in the Boston Globe and wanted to share some more photos from the trip!
