Eyes Closed RR-sent

This month I am taking part in a round robin on Postcrossing. If you don't know what a round robin is, basically you sign up to send cards to everybody in the group and you receive on from everyone. Some people have asked what kinds of cards I have/send. I usually buy postcards at gift shops I visit, touristy places, etc. I like this RR because you're supposed to just randomly pick a card instead of trying to meet someone's requests. I thought it might be good to use some cards (some which were a little odd to send to people came out in my random grab) and to see the variety of cards other people buy. These are the cards I'm sending. I will write another post with the cards I receive when all of them have come in.

Recent cards

Here are some recent Postcrossing cards that have come my way. If you are new to the blog (or snail mail), Postcrossing is a postcard exchange site. I have met so many wonderful people on the site and through their mail to me. This is what came in this week:

From Ukraine:
I think this is my first mail from Serbia? 
     It is Milos Obilic, a Serbian hero from the Kosovo battle in 1389 when he killed the Ottoman sultan Murat.  

Lastly, this one is from Russia. This little girl looks a little like me when I was younger. I was way less fashionable though.

     I have been consistently writing this month, which feels great. Now I just have to wait for people to reply (with my luck, all at the same time.) I'm on vacation this week so I plan to catch up on all of my penpals in my "reply" pile.  For now, these are the postcards going in tomorrow's mail- all headed to people who requested me as a friend on Lettermo. Hopefully I'll make some new friends.

    I'm looking forward to having this upcoming week off from school. I will be spending a few days down the Cape with the boys. I'm so excited for a few days of rest and "out of the ordinary."
