Yesterday, I received two postcards from Finland and Russia!
Russia. Rarely do I get a postcard that does not have a picturesque view, so it was a good feeling to receive one like this, at least, for a change. Not only that, Lena was so thoughtful to have sent something that had the first letter of my name. If that isn’t sweet, I don’t know what else is!
My Russian collection is slowly growing… haha. This is the fifth!
Finland. This is so cute as well! The first postcard I received from Finland is also as cute. I wonder where postcards with designs like these can be bought here in our country. All the postcards I send are tourist spots and national symbols.
Vuokko also sent Finnish coins and a newspaper clipping! This suddenly made me remember the Finnish recipe I also received with a postcard sent to me before.
Finnish letters are so cool.
I’ve been one frustrated and disappointed kid the past few days (omg, I don’t even think those words accurately describe how I really feel). But because of these, my mood has lightened up, even just for a bit, so I am very grateful to the generous senders. Thank you, thank you! And I say this again—it’s amazing how people you’ve never breathed the same air with or even know how they may look like have the ability to make your day. That quote that says that everyone (and I mean everyone) you meet and encounter really has an influence in your life, even if one might think it’s as shallow as… postcards? I guess it’s true.
