Postcards From Anywhere

Is it even summer if you haven’t sent a postcard?

“Live in the sunshine. Swim in the sea. Drink in the wild air.”  Ralph Waldo Emerson

I’m in love with this Emerson quote. It’s quintessentially summer. It instantly transports me to a summer holiday where I’m wearing a lovely, free-spirited Victorian dress while I walk along the shore sipping freshly squeezed lemonade, holding my hat on my head in the breeze.

And the one thing you always do on summer holiday? Write a letter to a dear friend stuck back in the city, sharing all your wonderful happiness. Fast forward to modern day, and notice all those cool looking cards at just about any souvenir shop anywhere in the world.

I mean, is it even summer if you haven’t sent a postcard?

Postcards are those printed cards with just enough space for a short message—maybe an “I miss you” or “Can’t wait to hang out” or some beautiful experience you can’t help but share.

And the best part—no need for an envelope! Put the address right on the card and send it out with a 35 cent stamp from the post office.

Going someplace cool? Pick one up for a friend. Or your grandma. Or your journal.

If your summer needs some perking up, make it a personal challenge to send a sweet note to somebody you miss. Find it on vacation or just pick one up from someplace around home.

Summer = postcards. Find one. Send one. You’ll be glad you did, and you can bet you’ll make someone smile.

Where is your favorite place to dream of visiting?
