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!
