Loveland, Colorado

I was born in Loveland, Colorado, the Sweetheart City. Five years before I was born, the city started the Valentine re-mailing program. Thousands of cards are sent to the post office each year to be stamped with a cachet and postmarked from Loveland. My sister still lives in Loveland and each year sends the official card. This is the card I received in the mail yesterday, postmarked Loveland and hand stamped with this year's cachet below.

Every year I think I am going to have my cards mailed from there...then I just don't. I even sent about ten cards this year...oh well. I was born in Longmont and lived in Firestone. Went to High School in Longmont because our school (Frederick) only went through 9th grade.
I enjoyed seeing the post mark.

That's really neat! Sort of like North Pole, Alaska!
