The Love and Envelopes Birthday Girl Club

When I was in fourth grade, our class was assigned Japanese pen pals.  We all wrote letters talking about our lives as nine year olds in America and sent them off across the ocean.  Some of the girls in my class got responses back.  I was not one of them, much to my disappointment.  Even back then, I liked the idea of reaching out to a total stranger to say hello.  I have also always enjoyed receiving mail. Two important qualities for his card exchange.

 There is something about opening an envelope that doesn't contain a bill that makes birthdays a little bit special (are ya with me?).  I joined the Love and Envelopes Birthday Girl Club two years ago, and it has been a fun experience.  Every month, I get to "meet" a new blogger by sending her a birthday card.  In return, bloggers send you cards on your birthday.  I have been giddy about going to the mailbox all week.  If you are interested in joining the next cycle, please contact April over here.

When my birthday rolled around this year, I got some lovely (and often funny) cards.  I would like to extend a thank you to the following bloggers for their sweet notes:

Niki from My Life, My Way

Pamela from Troop Petrie

Becky at GrandmaBeckyL

Have I convinced you to join?  Are you already a member? It really is a fun time!

It's a good idea. I like the pen pal in Japan mail. It would be fun to do that now.
