Wish You Were Here!

I have been collecting post cards from every city I’ve visited over the past few months. Some of them feature photos of a destination’s most famous attractions, while others simply state “Greetings from…”. Although I haven’t been able to send each of my loved ones a card from all the places I’ve been fortunate enough to see, I look forward to compiling an album of these cards once I’m back in California with a list of some of my favorite memories on the backs.

I believe letter writing is far less popular than it should be, and that postcards are often overlooked as inexpensive and sentimental souvenirs. In tribute to both of these increasingly “lost arts,” I decided to create a few postcards of my own – written for and addressed to some of my family members at home. And yes, I do realize the irony of creating digital postcards while lamenting the decline of written post … Anyway, enjoy! (And hi to all my family and friends, especially those who didn’t make the cut :))

Until next time,

  1. Well done, Julia. I’m so proud of you and look forward to seeing you when you’re back! I hope you’ll come into PSFA350 and share your stories in the fall.
