Post Card Pretties

I'm linking up today with Lyzz at Defying Gravity  and Amanda at For Love of a Cupcake for Post Card Pretties!!

I love snail mail! I love both sending it and receiving! Who doesn't??

I was paired up with Nicole over at Three31! The title of her blog actually reflects the month and date her and her husband got hitched! I think that is so sweet. Nicole is originally from Kentucky living in Joshua Texas which really isn't too far from me!  She also told me about a group of Texas Bloggers that is meeting up in Fort Worth in a few weeks! I'm so excited to have met such a sweet new friend through blogging and that I  may actually be able to meet in person.

I hope you can find time to go get to know Nicole! Her writings are hillarious and a wonderful thing I have learned about her is that she will be co-leading a mission trip to Haiti in October. This just melts my heart! Please keep her and her team in your prayers as they take this journey God has led them on to be His precious hands and feet.

So, Nicole kinda broke the rules a little bit! She sent me the cutest card instead of a postcard, but in all honestly I love it and I don't care! :) We did have a bit of a conversation through email that we actually prefer cards. I was supposed to break the rules with her but kinda ran our of time!

Ok, so I'm having a little problem with my computer and can't get the silly thing to flip! And on that note my ipnone is the best camera I have at the moment. So it is what is is....

Hello Kristen!!
(First of all, how did your license exam go?)
Yay for another excuse to visit the local Hallmark store...thanks for being my "blog-y pen pal" ha! It's also cool that we live fairly close, I'm just 25 miles south of FW. *If* you don't have plans, a group of Texas Bloggers" (find the group on Facebook) is meeting Saturday, Sept 8 at 6:30 pm.....I know it's short notice, I know it's a "fer piece" to drive, BUT it would be amazing to meet you in person.
BIG hug! Let's stay in touch.

I love it! And if you look really closely and maybe flip your computer upside down, you will see that she crossed out "your birthday" and wrote, "Hope this card is tweet-worthy!!"

Doesn't she just sound the sweetest!? She asked me about my exam and actually invited me to a blogger meeting!! Yes, I am a blogger lol. I'm still new at it but someone has reached out to me and invited me to something that is for bloggers! I just felt so special when she told me about that.

Thank you Nicole for brightening my day with such a sweet card! I really hope we can become good friends! I will be seeing you soon!

Thank you to Amanda and Lyzz for hosting this postcard exchange! I think it was a great idea and I hope to do it again in the near future!

Have a great day!


  1. Hey Kristen!!!! I'm so glad you enjoyed the card. I am infamous for spending WAY too much at The Hallmark Store. And, I'm also "that person" that will get a birthday card for an anniversary. If I like the message of the card, or if it makes me think of somebody, I'm going to buy it. And, now that I have your address, you might receive a card via snail-mail "just because" I like ya. =) Big hugs! Happy weekend!

  5. Found your blog through the Postcard Pretties link up and Nicole mentioned something about you not being able to take your exam and the words Occupational Therapy. I then HAD to just come check out your blog because I am applying for OT school this fall. Hope you get your licensure exam rescheduled soon!!!
