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 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.
