Note from Mel: I'm re-running this post because we're on our way to see Conan O'Brien tape his show at the Chicago Theater! We are BEYOND excited - in fact, we "wish you were here"! :D Back with a new post on Friday! :D
Can you believe it's August already? Here in my neck of the woods, the kids go back to school in about a month. You know what that means - if you haven't already, it's time to start that vacation before it's too late!
Not having any kids, Brian and I could hypothetically vacation anytime we want. We've gone on some Duesies - Alaska, Hawaii, Toronto (twice), Duluth, Washington, D.C. (twice), Denver, Fargo (don't laugh - Fargo has my FAVORITE HOTEL EVER). Alas, we haven't really taken a vacation in the last two years; it was a sacrifice we made when I quit my job at The Reporter. Skipping vacation is a really easy way to save money and truth be told, we haven't missed it much. Instead, we're choosing to explore our own state and its close neighbors. When you live in Wisconsin, this is pretty easy and fun!
With the arrival of the Internet and mobile phones with Foursquare and other sites, it seems quaint to send a postcard now, doesn't it? Then again, I can't put a Facebook post up on my fridge. And who doesn't love getting a postcard in the mail? That kind of stuff makes my day!
I have created some pieces utilizing old postcards - they're so versatile and fun to use!
