As a part of my birthday celebration I have been blogging a series of “33” themed post. Believe me, thinking up 33 things is no easy feat. Nevertheless, thanks for checking out 33 of my favorite things. Feel free to share if any of these things are your favorites too.

Drop me a line at [email protected], if you would like to send me “happy birthday mail.” I love happy mail, it truly makes my day. I love postcards, greeting cards, penpal letters, souvenirs, local handmade or homemade (made by you) things. I love getting to know about the lives and hometowns of others. (Just sharing what I like, not begging for stuff). Happy Birthday mail would truly be a blessing to me, especially at this season of my life where I could use a little extra prayer and encouragement.
