The Month of Letters Challenge

I love sending and receiving snail mail, so this year, prompted by my dear pen pal in Milwaukee, I decided to participate in the Month of Letters Challenge.

The idea behind MoLC is to mail something every day the post office delivers in the month of February. If you receive a letter from someone, you're supposed to write them back. It's extra cool because people send all sorts of interesting things from handmade stationery and envelopes to brochures of events in their towns, postcards, stickers, bookmarks, and other items that fit into an envelope.

Here are the places I mailed letters to during this year's challenge:

Day 1: Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
Day 2: Finspang, SWEDEN
Day 3: Princeton, Louisiana, USA
Day 4: Freedom, Oklahoma, USA
Day 5: Vilnius, LITHUANIA
Day 7: Eugene, Oregon, USA
Day 8: Linz, AUSTRIA
Day 9: Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, USA
Day 10: Lafayette, Colorado, USA
Day 11: Brewer, Maine, USA
Day 12: New Braunfels, Texas, USA
Day 1…
