Another postcard from my fabulous postcard exchange has rocked on into my life. Hooray! I love these babies.
This one is from Meghan over at Mathair Fiona. Meghan lives in the state of Oregon in the US of A. I have actually been to Oregon before, back in 1999 when I was doing some travel in the States. I caught a bus from San Francisco up to Seattle and stopped in Portland on the way. I loved the countryside in Oregon a lot. I remember noticing the beautiful trees lining the side of the road once we were in the state. There was a definite difference between there and California.
Meghan lives in the valley (but apparently prefers the coast). Although the upside of valley living is the gorgeous fresh produce they are getting there at the moment. This is definitely one of the benefits of a more rural life.
I have actually been keeping a close eye on one of her posts this week; it’s about organisation. She sounds pretty organised as it is but was looking for recommendations on how to be even more streamlined. There are some great tips in the comments on the post so you should totally go and check it out. I also found her post, How to Say I Love You on Father’s Day, really touching. It reminded me of how I loved watching X-man pretend to be a gorilla the other day all so he could make Monkey laugh. Our children bring out the nicest side of their father’s, don’t they?
Thank you Meghan for that great postcard that brought back many lovely memories for me. I’ll actually be doing the San Francisco to Vancouver journey again this October but this time in a car. I’ll wave out the window as I’m passing on through!
