Why do I love postcards? I think my obsession started out small enough when I asked the doorman at the Monaco, Ken, to bring me back something memorable from Amsterdam. Now obviously that opened up a huge can of worms, and he stared at me in shock and then winked and said 'No Problem Honey' I of course was not hinting of whatever illegal substance that immediately jumps to mind, and chased him outside to beg for something small and perfectly legal. He said he would bring me back 'the tulips' and not knowing what that meant I agreed and we left it at that. A few weeks later he came back to work and handed me two gorgeous postcards, one from Holland with the tulip fields in full bloom and one from Amsterdam. I jumped up to hug the 6'5'' man dressed in his purple Monaco suit and the obsession officially kicked into place. As of today I have postcards from almost every corner of the globe..coincidentally I don't have one from every beautiful place I have been to, but I suppose I might return to the Bahamas just to grab one...eventually.
I could probably list all of them in the order I received them, but that really wouldn't be interesting to anyone but me..(along with most everything else in this blog!) So here is the list, for now :) I'm hoping someone will see this and send me a postcard from wherever they are right now... and hopefully that's not my hometown!
This post wouldn't be complete with out a blurry picture of the goods...
