Friday Gratitude: Back in the Game

Happy Friday!

My mailbox has been very empty the last few months, until I got this postcard from my friend Katie! It is a picture of Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park, Washington. The postcard looks almost exactly like the picture I took when I hiked in Olympic National Park in 2009. See:

And, just for good measure, here is a picture of me hiking in Olympic National Park.

I realize the postal service goes both ways. So, I got back on my postcard game and mailed three this week. It has been my goal to send at least one postcard to every person in my address book before the end of my Peace Corps service.

If you’d like to send me a postcard or a letter (cough, cough), I’d love to hear from you! My address is:

April Gardner
Peace Corps
Str. Mujo Ulqinaku No. 3
10000 Pristina


Media Consumption this week …

  • I’m going to have to start adding Sesame Street to my list. My 12-year-old host cousin has been staying with us. Every day, she and I watch an episode of Sesame Street to help her with her English.
  • Otherwise, it’s just been the usual suspects this week: Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad.

Teaser: I am excited about Monday’s blog post. I’ll see you back here then! Have a good weekend, everyone. 🙂

  1. I have a postcard all ready to be mailed to you! And one thing I’m glad I did while I was here was sign up for It’s a fun way to get mail and also share a little about your host country.


    1. Aww, you’re sending me a postcard?! Thanks! Please message me with your address and I’ll send you one from Kosovo. Thanks also for the tip about postcrossing … I’ve never heard of it.
