Letters from Andy

Got a letter from my brother today. He wrote about receiving letters and cards from some people he doesn't know but who apparently know his sister. Thank you doesn't begin to cover this. I deeply appreciate those of you who wrote to him during boot camp. He's grateful. Deeply.

I mailed one last letter off today not really sure if he'll get it before graduation on Friday or not. Maybe. Hopefully.

I can't wait to see him on Thursday!--I promise to take way too many pictures to share later. :)

If you would like to join me in continuing to acknowledge the service of American troops, I encourage you to check out a non-profit organization called A Million Thanks. Due to tightened security, you can't send cards and letters to "Any Soldier" anymore but this organization exists for collection and distribution of letters and cards of thanks for soldiers/troops working within the military quidelines.

Happy Tuesday!

PS If you haven't had a chance to check out the amazing jaw-dropping work of Tina, go right now to her blog and view the work of a woman who makes this phrase ring true loudly:

Great pictures don't really need much embellishing!

I got the sweetest letter from Andy over the weekend - it was a joy to hear from him!!! I did send another note and handmade card to him yesterday, hopefully in time for his graduation.

Enjoy your trip and give him a hug from me!
