Officially one week left until summer is over. This summer was definitely more laid back and I didn't really accomplish a lot but it still felt nice. no regrets.

I really did a lot of snail mail activities though and that was on my summer-to-do-list....wherever that may be.

There's been a lot of mail coming and going this past week though,


box of buttons and postcard from Mary. I still haven't gotten over how awesome this was!

Thanks Miki for the package, I love the "Keep Calm and Draw On" card!

I wish I could hug every cat! :( lol

 (yes that is a cat ear near the top of the photo)

Outgoing mail,

These next two are #49 and #50 of Mail Art 365. I'll try posting more of them as I go making/sending them.

Can you guess why this is my favorite shirt???

Summer is trucking along and even though we're about to head into mid August, it's been hotter than ever! 108' degrees today. I've been spending my days inside because even the pool water is too hot.

We've also been experiencing a lot of earthquakes lately and they've been really close by. I've lived in Southern California my whole life but I can never get used to them. I been terrified of them ever since the Northridge quake in 1994. I think the part that scares me the most is the feeling you get right before it hits, you can hear and "sense" it first. It's hard to describe what it sounds like, my mom said it was like horses running towards you. I also get really light headed and scared right before it hits. I just hate them. This week it's been just really hard "jolts", lasting only a few seconds. Anyways, enough about earthquakes...

This past weekend Tim and I plus a couple of our friends played "Tourist" in L.A/Hollywood. We rode the metro, took a Starline tour and then went to CityWalk. We got to ride the double decker tour bus that goes all around Hollywood and L.A.The guy who sold us the tickets asked us where we were from and thought it was hilarious that I'm FROM Hollywood and went to Hollywood High (which is a block away from Hollywood BLVD) ...I still felt like a tourist as I pointed out all the different landmarks such as the hospital as I born in, my high school and my grandparent's house hahah!

 we also roamed around Downtown L.A. for a while before heading home...
