Brightening your day


By now you all know about the League of Extraordinary Penpals, but if you’re curious to know how it all started, Laura and I wrote our story in this post so check it out!


And now I want to show you a penpal ad that I received from Julia in the USA (originally from Brazil). ETA: Julia is moving back to Brazil!

100 penpal ads!


John in the USA is looking for new penpals so he sent me his ad… Which is the 100th ad to be published on my blog! Glass of champagne, anyone?

I love the name of John’s city! Sunnyside… Right now it’s -34°C over here and it’s supposed to go down to -44°C during the night! Anyone else having crazy temperatures these days?!


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.
