International letters, state farmers market, and Valentine's Day!
How was your Valentine's Day? Did you get chocolate, or do anything special? My parents gave me chocolate and candy hearts :)
Four new letters! Two of which are from outside the USA!
Anyway, I also got a letter from Susan, from Custer, South Dakota. It was my first letter from the mid-west. I think she's Melody's mom, because they have the same last name, and Susan said that her daughter was interning at the Smithsonian Postal Museum. I wonder if they knew each other wrote?
I got a letter from David from Poland! He has a blog here. He sent me a Polish coin, 20 groszy, and a few phrases in Polish!
The last letter is from Caddie, from Germany. She also has a blog, which is in English! She used really cute bear stationary!
So today we went to the history program at the National Archives in Georgia again, and it was very interesting, but I don't have anything to post from it (like the draft cards from last time). It doesn't have anything to do with mail, (except you could probably get some good postcard pictures there!) but on the way home, we stopped at the state farmers market, since it was on the way, and for once we had time. It was really interesting!
I know I diverged (quite a bit!) from the mail theme, but I thought this was interesting :) Hopefully you thought so too!
