a walk to the post office.

I walk this road every day.

A block away from our house is our adorable little Post Office, 
and ever since we moved here about 8 years ago, it has been my job to get the mail each day.

Those of you that have a P.O. Box will understand how fun it is to crouch down,
stick your key in the box, turn it, pull out your mail, turn the key to close it, and see if anything came for you.

Through wind/rain/snow/sun I walk this path..
some days it is the only time I get outside, as I'm honestly not a huge 'outdoors-y' person.

Earlier this year they shut down our post office and I was crushed.
Then we got it back--I seriously hope it never leaves.

I could say a lot more about these photos, but I think I'll ditch the word-y descriptions today
and you can just enjoy the images and the story they tell.
I really had so much fun documenting this today.

  13. I enjoyed the post and the pictures. We have a P.O. Box and I always think it is so fun to get the mail. :) I also thought it was cool because our PO is only a mile from my house.

  14. I love getting mail! We live an apartment so I dot get to go outside but just to the lobby. We've adopted this thing where good is mail is considered a 'dove' and bad mail is a 'raven' so we'll just shout one of those words to announce our arrival. (I have no idea how we started this)

    Can I come and live in your cute little town, with the cute little post office, and use the cute little PO boxes? And find cute little cards in it, too? ;)

    Love this post, Hannah! Super creative and very nostalgic- small American post office buildings make me smile. :) Thanks for sharing!

  17. LOVE this creative project, Hannah. I too love adventuring outdoors to get the mail (especially when there are letters waiting to be discovered!) each day. And way to go on even taking pictures IN the post office. =) I have to add that your shoes are pretty adorable + love the design of the card you received (I was happy to find a similar one in our mailbox today, too! :). Blessings, Hannah!!
