Nurse Jackie


Isn’t it wonderful how I’ve been posting on my blog for 4 days in a row?!


Today here’s a pretty penpal ad by Noora in Finland.

Noora’s email address:


What is it with nurses on my blog these days?! Reannon is a nursing student and now Noora is a nurse… That reminds me of a nurse I love: Nurse Jackie! But I hope you girls have better ethics. Who else is a fan of that show?


You can expect daily posts from me again from now on. Who’s happy?!

My son has been fascinated by maps for a long time.

I think it’s awesome that my 8 year old boy has an interest in geography and I want to encourage that! So if anyone has a map or two to spare (or even a map postcard), I’m sure he would be thrilled to get a little something in the mail!

You can make his day by sending a little surprise to:

Thank you!


Does anyone else’s child have an interest in maps?! Maybe they could become map buddies!

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.
