Life in Alaska: Funky Cool Mailboxes

We moved to Juneau in fall of 2013. Before we moved up to the Final Frontier we lived in suburbia in the Midwest. Flat lands, boring mailboxes, same houses over and over again. Oh and did I mention corn fields.

Once we got up here I started noticing something. People here express their personality in different ways. Homes are unique. A lot of mailboxes are fun, exciting, unique and maybe even crazy.

Let me be upfront here and say I am definitely not making fun of any mailbox that I share. I took all of the pictures. I stopped on the side of the road and actually got out of my car for most of them! I thought the mailboxes were unique and a great expression of personality. These mailboxes are awesome!

What a fun way to identify your home! With out further ado tell me which mailbox is your favorite?

    The ones with the skies plastered on the side are my favorite. What a fun way to add some personality. We have boring community boxes at the end of our street. Maybe mine needs a sticker 🙂 Thanks for linking up last week with #JoyHopeLive Hope to see you again tomorrow.
