Chicks & chickens…


Rachel in the USA has chickens and is looking for chicks! (I’m easily amused…)

Penpal vs. pen pal


OK I know that the proper spelling is probably “pen pal”, but I prefer to use the word “penpal”. And I like “penpalling” as well!


Most of the time, I see it written as “pen pal” but I’ve been writing “penpal” for so long that I just can’t bring myself to use separate words for this concept.


I just did a quick search on the Internet and both spellings are widely used.


I’m curious… Which one do you prefer?!

My name is Julie and I'm 37.
I'm French Canadian and fell
in love with an American,
so I'm now living in Vermont
with my wife.

I write letters, I love stationery and I have a handwriting fetish. I often eat sushi, still feel like I'm 16 and only wear skirts & dresses (with colorful tights when it's cold).

I'm happier with a mind full of ideas, a mailbox full of letters from my penpals, a shop full of stationery, a house full of pens and a day full of hugs.

Read my Top 10 Quirks here.

This is me with my wife,
Denise. We met through the
League of Extraordinary
Penpals and are living
happily ever after in the
Stationery Kingdom.

Denise blogs here too and is
the one in charge of the
social media: Facebook,
Twitter and Pinterest.

She's 40 years old,
from South Dakota,
and in love with me, washi
tape & imperial rolls.
