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…)

  1. This weekend I planned to bead my buns off and I am off to a good start! I make jewelry (have been since 2007) and hopefully by beginning of next year will have a web site up. Mostly I do it to relax and keep my sanity! Ashley, I envy you! It must be wonderful to write! Even though you can’t have carte blanche at the newspaper, it’s a start! Who knows it may lead to other writing avenues.

  2. Unfortunately I can’t say I have had the best of weekends but I’m hanging in there and your blog always brighten my day!

  3. Chantal, I would love to see the jewelry you make so let me know when your site’s up and running!

    Yanill, I’m sorry to know that your weekend isn’t the most fabulous so far, but I’m happy if my blog can put a smile to your face! xox

  4. I will definately let you know Julie.

    Yanill, hopefully Sunday is a better day. :)

  5. Just ate a grilled cheese sandwich (and had to make one for the mother and step-dad) because of this post! :)

  6. I have really just had a rough week.

    Julie: thank you very much. I really appreciate that! <3

    chantal: thanks we could say it was not as bad as yesterday.

  7. Ashley,
    We actually live fairly close to each other! Glad you’re rejoining the pen-palling world!

  8. I hope Ashley doesn’t mind if I write her even though this is 2 months old, she sounds like an interesting person! :)


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.

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.
