Hi, my name is Mariah, and I am addicted to sending and receiving postcards.
I wasn’t always obsessed. I used to think postcards were something you bought on vacation and sent to friends and family. What would I need with them in my daily life?
And then, I found the amazingly fun, free service Postcrossing.com. Queue my addiction!
Postcrossing.com is a postcard exchange website connecting postcard fans all over the world! In the time I’ve been a member (2 years in March), I have sent 500 cards to 64 different countries and received that many back.
One day while I was greeting customers at the Liberty Branch, a lady told me she had just finished reading the book, Hannah’s List. Since I had never read a book by the author Debbie Macomber, I decided to give it a try.
Meteorologists use this term to describe weather that is a mixture of freezing rain, ice pellets (more commonly known as sleet), and snow. It's when three types of winter weather are all happening at once due to the temperatures in the air. To me, wintery mix is code word for "Not fun to drive in!"
Okay, so what do those three things mean on their own?
In 2002, Sam Raimi, a man known more for his cheesy-yet terrifying- horror films (Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, Evil Dead…well, you get the picture), brought to the silver screen one of the most iconic superheroes of the past five decades: The Amazing Spider-Man! The film was met with mixed reviews, but for the most part, the fans liked it.
The first two years I was married, we moved three times. The big advantage to this is that we went through our stuff, and got rid of things that we didn’t need or use. Why pack and haul things that are not needed? I have since lived in the same house for the past 15 years. The thought of packing to move anywhere (not that we are planning to in the near future) gives me the chills. We have accumulated a few things in those years.
