Here are some postcards that I received lately!


The first one is from Sue who’s thinking about submitting a penpal ad. (You should definitely do it – I’ll be happy to feature you!)

Ashley, congrats on the promotion! (And happy belated birthday…) At some point in my life I wanted to become a journalist, but I eventually changed my mind. Still, I think it must be fun to work at a newspaper. My dad wrote for the local paper before I was born, in the sports section…


And now thanks to you Ashley, I’m craving a grilled cheese!


What is everyone up to this weekend? Louis-Justin and I will write a story together and then I’m watching the UFC with the guys tonight. (The guys being my boyfriend and my two exes…)


My name is Julie and I'm 34.
I live in Québec (close to Montréal) and I speak French.

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 cats and a day full of hugs.
