There's no recipe today! This post is all about mail -- getting it, sending it... and participating in a sweet blogger pen-pal idea called Send Something Good.
I really like the idea of pen pals. I traveled a lot when I was younger -- first as an exchange student in Germany in high school, then around the world with an amazing field study program for my junior year of college, then after college I interned in India, then worked in Thailand. Each of these experiences took me far out of my comfort level. I loved, loved, loved (and really relied on) getting mail from friends.
