snail mail happiness

In July my mailbox had plenty of surprises and many blessings. I truly am so thankful for all the friends I have. If I write you, and you're reading this, thank you! This mail is mostly from July, along with a few June and a couple from August. Can't believe summer is nearly coming to an end. I'm determined to enjoy every last moment before school starts up. It'll be here before we know it.  I haven't written an incoming post in a while, so I thought I'd share that with you today.

Found this in the mailbox today~ a recipe swap, though I'm not planning on doing it
I sent out letters to do this in June I believe and only received one out of 36 recipes. :)
