Postcards might seem like a thing of the past, but they’re a great way to hold off on the text message, and show some love with a little effort. Yes, by buying and mailing a postcard! My favorite part is that in my search for these vintage relics, I discovered a lot of these were available to buy. Who is ready to start a postcard collection with me?

The first to bloom in the springtime,

Red berries in summer and fall,

Of all the trees in the forest

We love you best of all.

You spring up out by the roadside,

Stand sentinel down by the gate

While we revel in dogwood blossoms,

For you are the flower of our state

Which ones would you send to a friend or loved one? Are any of you postcard collectors?
