Hey DAO! Just wanted to let you know I received the postcard from the VT meet!Thanks, I love it! It makes me feel nostalgic for VT! Hope you had a great time and thank you for thinking of me! (P.S. Not sure if you told me you received my postcard or not from Tirana -- only 1 other person told me they just now received a card from me from Tirana.)
