Frequently Asked Questions
about saving postcards from places you visit and displaying them in a glass vase. She loved the idea and from that point on in May of 2011, whenever we traveled together we’d send a postcard back home.
Ironically, the first postcard we sent home was from the home of our first U.S. President, George Washington. We jotted down highlights from our visit on the postcard, including the view from the rocking chairs on the back porch overlooking the Potomac River and the Maryland shore.
After we got married, Ann bought a big jar and in about six years, we’ve added more than 100 postcards to the jar which adorns a table in the entryway of our home. Our postcard jar is a constant reminder of where we’ve been and the things we’ve experienced together and we couldn’t think of a more fitting name for our blog.
A: Ann – Unlike Steve, I didn’t travel abroad until I was 36, but I remember great family road trips as a kid to places like the the Grand Canyon, the Black Hills of South Dakota, my grandparents’ retirement home in The Ozarks, and one long cross country trek with six kids and two adults to St. Petersburg, Florida. Leaving the prairie of Southeast Nebraska and seeing the desert, hills, mountains, lakes or beaches was always exhilarating and gave me the bug for travel.
