Wish You Were Here: A Postcard Every Wednesday

Bonjour! I’m celebrating my blog’s first anniversary this week! 🎉

I can’t believe it’s been one year since I hit the publish button on my first post titled delightfully by default, The Journey Begins in 2018.

To continue the journey theme, I’m excited to announce a new series: Wednesday Postcard! I hope these postcards will make you want to revisit a favorite vacation spot or to embark on a journey to the destination of your dreams!

Each week, I’ll share a picture postcard from my personal collection of France and other Francophone regions, plus a few surprises.

Over the years, I have accumulated about two hundred postcards from around the world, which I’ve either purchased from my local antique shops or received from thoughtful jet-setting family and friends who know I collect them. When I travel, I also like to send myself a carte postale just for fun!


  1. What a great idea. And love that you actually send a card to yourself when you travel — that is such a great idea. Although I travel very little, if I remember, I’m going to do that too in any future travel.
    I send postcards to people but. never receive any in return. I tend to send them as a surprise with a nice positive note for the receiver. The postcards I use are my own photographs which I’ve had printed as postcards.

    1. Hi Diane, I think it’s a kind and thoughtful touch to send postcards with photographs you’ve taken – what a unique and special gift for your recipients! I’m curious: How do you print them and make them into postcards? Do you DIY or go to a printer?

      I once considered using TouchNote (dot) com, where you can send a photo from your phone and send it as a postcard. But then the message you provide would be “typed” out. Yes, it’d be efficient, but defeats the purpose of getting a postcard, which IMHO is to provide a personal touch with handwritten notes, which are becoming rare. I’ve heard that some schools have even stopped teaching cursive, which is sad to me!

      Thanks so much for writing.


Thanks for reading. I'd love to hear from you:
