Penpal Ad Emily 2


Emily, I have no idea who that character is, but I’m not into manga / anime / Japanese stuff, so it’s no big surprise there. However, I do love sushi, does that count? :)


When I was a kid, my favorite name was Émilie (the French version of Emily) and I remember naming one of my pet turtles Émilie. The other ones were named Catherine and Jessica. A few years later, I got another turtle and named him Raoul! /end of random anecdote.


For anyone who would like to get in contact with Emily, her email address is

  3. Oh, I definitely know who that guy is. But I love Kyo more! ♥_♥

  4. Thank you Julie for publishing my ad! I know it may be too late for some (and that some may not see this), but since writing this ad I no longer care how old you are. It doesn’t matter. Just so you know. ;) And I’m so happy to see all the comments about Yun-chan! <3 <3 <3

  5. Emily, I’m so glad to know that age doesn’t matter to you anymore, because right after reading your ad I really want to write to you XD I will send you an e-mail now :-) :-) :-)

  6. Yuki ! lol

  7. Yeeey, Yuki! :D Recognized him at once! :)
    I know this is an old ad, but I’d be happy to write you letters if you are still looking for pals! :)


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.
