Leaving for Mexico…


Yes, it’s that time of year where I hop on a plane, write letters on the beach, splash in the water with Louis-Justin, have philosophical discussions with my mom, eat lots of delicious food, and relax for 10 days.




I’ll be on the Riviera Maya until March 8, and when I come back I want to post all the lovely penpal ads I received since the beginning of 2014. I have 12 right now, so you can expect an explosion of quirkiness when I return from my vacation.


Have fun, but don’t do anything I wouldn’t do while I’m gone! ;)

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.
