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



From Huffington Post’s article.


And that’s not the only thing we’re celebrating today. I’ve got more incoming snail mail to show off!


First, I’ll start with the incoming mail that Julie has received.



Annie in Ireland sent her favorite poem.



Polka dots from Cecilia in Germany.



This letter from Erin in BC has a pretty label!



Look at these colorful butterflies from Iryna in Ghana!



Jackie from Ohio sent nose strips for blackheads in this envelope.



Michi’s fun envelope came all the way from Poland!



More polka dots; this time they came from Stéphanie in France. 

(I can’t believe the postal worker canceled the stamps like that!)


And here’s the recent incoming mail I have received.



Cute hello washi on this envelope from Ceri in the UK!



The first of 2 letters I received from Minnesota; this one is from Davina.



And here’s the 2nd, from Katherine!



Laura from Australia sent me tea in this envelope. Yum!



Marian sent me this wavy envelope from Tennessee.



I love the paper and pattern combo on this envelope from Sofie in Sweden!


Lastly, we have 3 postcards that came for both Julie and I.



This hilarious postcard came from Kathleen in Minnesota.

Yep, it’s a real thing!



Katherine sent us this pretty card from her getaway.



Some of our Minnesota friends in the LEP had a meetup and sent us this fun card!


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.

  1. Super fun! First of all, YAY LOVE! Second of all, I love that I sent you nosestrips for blackheads!


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.
