Hello blogworld! Guess what? As of Monday, April 15, Please Deliver To is officially one year old.
YAY! Happy Birthday blog! Now, don't eat all of the ice cream and cake just because it's your birthday—you're starting to look a little thick around the waist and could stand to lose a few pounds. WHAT? I know it's cruel, but I say it to be kind.
However, in addition to celebrating my one-year blog anniversary, I'm sad to announce that I'm taking an indefinite break from blogging and this will be my last post, at least for the foreseeable future.

I started this blog a year ago at the urging of my best friend. She wanted me to start a blog as a record of all the "mail art" (term used loosely) that I was sending out as a new snail mailer. I never thought that this blog would spawn an etsy store, a penpal club, and above all else, great relationships with all the penpals I've met through this blog and all you awesomesauce readers who have left comments over the past year. It's been great.
However, it's difficult finding time to blog because I've got my plate full with LEP, trying to be a decent penpal, a full time job, eating, sleeping, and the general messy business of trying to have a personal life.
So for now, I bid the business of blogging adieu!
But I won't be too far away. I'm all over the LEP newsletter and I'll still be writing posts over at the LEP website. In addition, you can always email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. I may not be posting regularly on Please Deliver To, but it doesn't mean that I don't want to hear from you. Please continue to share your plans for the apocalypse, snail mail news, what you ate at 2:37 pm on a Thursday afternoon, excitement over TV marathons, and everything in between. I'm only an email away.
I may pick up Please Deliver To again in the future when things slow down and I'm struck by inspiration (I hope not literally, I reckon that would hurt!). But in the meantime, so long and thanks for all the fish!
Stay cool, snail mailers.
