Comment: Thank you so much for passing on Aurora's card. I also really love the Harry Potter stickers, geisha envelopes and postcards, really kind of you!!! I had a blast watching the elections but I can imagine that it was getting a bit much for you all. Here we have a warm fall too (64F) which is extreme normal temperatures are around 50F

Comment: Love the skyline on the card, so pretty! The stamps are great too. I had a job that changed to 100% from home and it gave me mixed feelings too. It's hard when you don't get out during the day.

Comment: Hi Cathy! I'm so sorry that you couldn't spend more time with your dad - all this COVID stuff is so crazy and I'm so, so over it. Was the weather nice up there? I've never been up north and I think I'd love to go to Cape Cod someday. Thank you so much for the awesome postcard from there as well! That was incredibly sweet of you. (I also love the mermaid sticker and the vintage postage stamps - so, so awesome.) Take care and stay safe!!! <3
Response: So glad that you enjoyed the PC. We had gorgeous weather, with one day of rain, which I also liked! If you like the beach, bay or ocean, the Cape is spectacular. Stay safe!
