When I was a teenager I was one of those with my favourite celebrity posters taped to my walls. I bought (and cut apart) teen magazines as often as they would come out in search of the newest (and hottest) pictures to add to my collection. Friends and I would compare what we each had.



Sometimes at the back of those teen magazines were stars fan mail addresses with which you could mail in and hope to receive a special letter or autographed photo. I mailed out several throughout those tween and teen years only to get a handful back. Even though I didn't get many, it was always exciting to get mail just for me (it still is unless it a bill, nobody likes bills). I wish I still had the autographed pictures today although a few years ago I did the same for my better half and we got some cool autographed postcards of some famous actors (of our own generation! Ha!). Maybe my love of Hollywood and all things movies makes me find it cool to have things like collectable memorabilia. Anyway, this story isn’t all about me!

My teenager lives and breathes the show Supernatural and anything to do with it. Several months ago (after some serious googling) we emailed a few of her favourite Supernatural cast members and totally forgot all about it, until today.

In an envelope addressed to her was a glossy, autographed photo from one of the stars of the show that we had emailed! I was surprised because I thought the email addresses were long gone into cyberland and totally bogus. At the same time, I was happy because hello "Mom of the Year"!


Sure it’s not personalized other than the address on the envelope and we know it’s most likely a generic fan mail photo but none of that matters to her. Just having possession of that autographed picture itself is enough. I can totally relate to her excitement! She spent her afternoon instagramming and telling all her friends (and fellow fans) all about it. Wouldn't you? :)

    1. Sending off for celeb autographs is always a thing! 😂 I *Think* I may have had Johnathan Brandis too from his SeaQuest days! I wish I still had them today! 🤷🏼‍♀️

    1. I think everyone has at one point! My mom told me about having paper flyers come once in a while back in the 1960’s and ‘70’s and you could mail out for celebs autographs like the Beatles etc! So cool! 😂
