Received #19 @jordynb national battlefield card!! I’d love to send you all cards, I’m getting ready to go out west to those national parks and pacific coast!

We’ll be gone for around 3 weeks. Then, I get to go to the Atlantic Ocean!

I’m thinking do a few cards each day of my trip and hopefully I can get you all one. If not, look forward to next months RR :blush::joy:

Hello friends! #6 here reporting a bunch of received cards.

I just got one for JANUARY! @k8thegr8- Kate (#11), your card dated January 12th finally made it to Pittsburgh. Love the image of Totem Bright State Park. How have you progressed on your goal to read 35 book this year?

Three more cards for May, making all May cards received.
#8- thank you @jenz88, Jen for the Gal Pals postcard. Love the image and purple washi and stickers. Hugs and scritches to Little and Harley!
#22- thank you @alisonp2022, Alison for the cool ad card for the Kentucky Book Festival. What a great image of the books and ladders and readers. I don’t mind ad cards at all, nor homemade cards, food packaging, etc.
#23- thank you @LLAcademy, El & Family for the lovely Cassatot River State Park card. So pretty! Loved reading about your adventure/road trip to see the park and the eclipse. Those last minute trips are sometimes the best. Thank you also for the cute doxie sticker.

Also reporting June cards received from 5, 8, 11, 19, 25.
#5- thank you @Imhowl, Leslie for the gorgeous young woman in the carriage. Looks like a wedding photo? I tried Google Lens and she did not come up. I wish we could see it in color; I bet the flowers, crown and dress were stunning. Welcome to OC&E! I hope you have fun and love it as much as I do. :heart:
#8- thank you @jenz88, Jen for the beautiful O’Keefe portrait postcard. I love a nontraditional portrait and Georgia out in a field is just perfect.
#11- thank you @Fangirllt, Lycette for the cool Mars sand dunes postcard. I also love reading about space and stars, but mosting fictional accounts. :slight_smile: Welcome to the round robin!
#19- thank you @jordynb, Jordan for the Rockcastle Karst postcard. SO cool that you got to go on one of the 2 days a year it is open. That must have taken some planning. My luck, I would decide to go and find out it was open last week. haha
#25- thank you @sarahgrab1, Sarah for the sweet books/reading/nature postcard. It is perfect for me. We took a long hike yesterday and being out amongst the trees and along the river was so much fun.

#3 @MsKoby: Ellisa, thank you for the warm welcome! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: so happy to be back! Thank you for this gorgeous Arcadia National Park card! The art and colors are gorgeous! I’d love to visit that Park one day. Summer has been busy here, too! Hurricane prep in swing, but we are getting one last little staycation in before the weather season is in full swing. Visiting some local museums!

#5 @Imhowl: Leslie, thank you for this lovely vintage linen card featuring a stunning nighttime city scene. Welcome to the RR! You’ve picked a perfect card for me. Summer is definitely here down in FL, the hot weather came right out of the gate. We’re driving to Orlando next week for a little staycation before the weather season is in full swing. Boating sounds fun, have a blast! Hope you’re enjoying the summer so far. :slight_smile:

#7 @PrincessFlamingo: Joy, I LOVE this Route 66 Arizona card! I love the history of Route 66 and all the nostalgia! The fair was always so fun, we used to go to the Florida State Fair in Tampa growing up, but haven’t been for a few years. Funnel cake was the BEST!

#19 @jordynb: Jordyn, what a great Mill Springs Battlefield Monument card! I love American History! And the stamps/postmarks are so great too. Thanks for choosing this one for me! We just visited the fort in St. Augustine last month and really enjoyed it too. Hope you are having a great summer so far!

#25 @sarahgrab1: Sarah, I love this fox illustration! SOOO cute! Enjoy your trip down to FL if you visit your in-laws! That’s a gorgeous area of the state. We are taking one last little staycation to Orlando next week before the weather seasons in full swing, but looks like we’ll be getting some storms. My goal is also to visit more local museums this summer!

Y’all are on a vintage kick!! I love it!
#5 @Imhowl Leslie, Welcome :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: and thank you for this beautiful vintage card from Virginia. I understand the changes of small town vs large cities. Both have their pros and cons.

#7 @PrincessFlamingo Joy, what a cool story to go with the post office postcard!! I would love to see the turtle! :turtle: Thanks for sharing this with me. :purple_heart: I hope you had a great birthday.

#8 @jenz88 Thank you for this postcard, my beautiful friend. I love it and appreciate it. And you!

#11 @Fangirllt Lycett, I haven’t played the Game of Life in a long time! In fact, I didn’t think we have ever played it with our kids (21 & 17), so it’s been a REALLY long time. :rofl:

#19 @jordynb My sweet friend! Thank you for this postcard. You know me so well. I am so glad you had fun in your trip. I look forward to our next adventure together; wherever that is!

#14 @darlindanz - Joanie- What a special card, especially since you lived here! Eleanor Roosevelt was a special lady! And, I already told you I’m obsessed with the washi!

#16 @TheMailmansWife - Tayler - Love this textured card and the sweet farm scene! The kitties and piggies napping together! I am still as obsessed with TTPD as I was on day 1…maybe even more! My 4 year old is obsessed as well!!

#5 @Imhowl - Leslie, WELCOME!! We are so glad to have you with us! Reading is absolutely my escape and I love the striking purple of this card! Perfect! Thank you!

#7 @PrincessFlamingo - Joy, what a beautiful sunset! I prefer summer to winter as well and there is just something about a sunset on a summer day that makes my heart smile!

#8 @jenz88 - Jen, how cool is this?! Another reason postcrossing is so fascinating! All the places you can learn about! This is creepy, but super neat! I super appreciate it!

#17 @hjbcats - Hannah, this lady holding her letter staring off into the world…I GET HER! Coincidence you wrote this card on a rainy day and I received it on one!

#18 @Hazygirl - JoAnn, I’m with you on mushrooms. Although, there is an app at Longhorn that is delicious! I think the cheese covers most of the mushroom flavor for me! Wishing you a wonderful summer, Friend!

#19 @jordynb - Jordyn, Thank you for sharing this card and the info on The Conrad-Caldwell House! I would love to visit it one day! Have you finished the book? Let me know if I should add it to my TBR!

@speechlady99 Thank you for this beauty of a National Park card. I love the buffalo. My friend just did a tour of some of the big western parks and brought me back lots of cards, but not this one!

@lmhowl <— I couldn’t pull up her username! I am loving the vintage cards going around lately, so thank you for this hospital card! :smiley:

@PrincessFlamingo Our fair is in September and I don’t usually go. It’s too hot! I want to do a meetup but I am having these fierce migraines off and on. I cannot keep a steady schedule ATM. :frowning:

@jenz88 Gorgeous chapel!!! I would love to go see it, too. I don’t have any plans for this summer, either.

@hjbcats The park looks intriguing. I absolutely loved the stamps on the postcard.

@jordynb I never visited Old Louisville when I lived in Lexington. I would have loved to see this beauty in person. I adore old homes. Mine is old but definitely not this grand!

@sarahgrab1 What a cute little fox! I don’t have any summer plans yet.

I found it hiding behind my desk when I was cleaning! A handful of postcards fell and got lost back there but I’m glad I was able to get it to you eventually!

#9 from @southernwonder, thank you Jessica for the great reading postcard. This is definitely me! Sorry to hear about the tornado warnings; that’s scary! We have had a lot of ups and downs with the weather, but nothing too bad. We also have a few long weekends planned. :books:

And also for June, two Texas postcards!
