Reid’s First Postcard

We aren’t really a family of collectors, unless you count dirt bike gear and books!  One thing that I have been saving for years is my ever-growing pile of postcards.  Even though I don’t know what to do with them, I can’t bring myself to get rid of them!  My stash of postcards...probably 100 or so...Looking through this stash, there are postcards from throughout N0rth and South America, Europe,  Asia and Australia but none from Africa or Antarctica (shocker!).  Friends and family have sent them from honeymoons in Hawaii, weekends at castles in the South of France, vacations in Central America…the list goes on and on! 

Our very good friends David and Beverly just finished their whirlwind tour circumnavigating the world, literally.  If you want to read about their amazing journey, check out their blog here.  The stories and photos are fantastic!   Bev and I have been friends for nearly 13 years and she knows how much I love getting a postcard.

So imagine my delight when Reid and I went to the mail and found this:Reid's first postcard Reid's first postcardThis was sent to Reid from Essaouira, Moracco.  Pretty cool, huh?!  His FIRST postcard!!  :)

Thank you Auntie Bev and Uncle David!  We can’t wait to see you again and hear all about your adventure!  Reid had changed a lot since you left, and I’m sure your amazing journey has changed you both, too!

Yay! I'm so glad the postcard made it! Morocco is amazing as was the rest of our trip. We will definitely have to get together soon and tell you all about it. I want to hold your little man!
