Incoming

 

I am very happy. Today, the United States took one gigantic step toward equality. Love wins!

I plan to spend a lot of time kissing and hugging my wife this weekend. She’s my favorite. There is no thing greater than love and that’s what I choose to celebrate and be grateful for.

 

May your weekend be filled with your favorite things too! Peace.

Outgoing

 

Often when I’m rubbing Julie’s shoulders or playing with her hair she will say these 4 familiar words to me as soon as I stop… “Again, again. More, more.” It’s not said with a demanding inflection. She kind of has this tone that says something like this: “That felt so amazingly good and I can’t possibly go on without you continuing to do it some more…  Pleeeeeease!”

 

On Monday, I posted lots of photos of incoming mail that Julie and I have received. I just know you crazy letter writing enthusiasts can’t get enough of the snail mail images, so “Again, again. More, more…”

 

It’s time for me to share photos of my recent outgoing letters.

 

ToMarian

Here’s a colorful envelope I sent to Marian in Tennessee. 

 

TOCharlotte

These pretty flowers are for Charlotte in the UK.

 

TOLisa

Lots of washi color for Lisa in France!

 

tosofie

Dinosaur mail for Sofie in Sweden.

 

ToSofie7

Sofie not only loves dinosaurs, she loves dragons too!

 

ToRachel

Here is a winged theme envelope for Rachel in Oregon.

 

And that’s all I have for now! But don’t you worry, I’ll be back soon with another Incoming/Outgoing post. Have a super weekend!

 

Hello!

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.
