Day 103 – Hello (part 2)

This is my other letter from the Letter Writers League meetup the other day. I matched the envelope, card, ink, and postage, and I was so proud of myself. Now if only the rest of my life could be this organized 😂

Huge thanks to the Little Rock Letter Writers League for the fun and friendship and snail mail love!

Day 102 – Hello (part 1)

This cute envelope and card are from the Little Rock Letter Writers League meetup, probably the last time I’ll be able to attend since I’m moving soon. This card is headed to an IG user that kindly sent me a card and sticker from a coffee/stationery shop that she visited.

Day 101 – With Sympathy

This is my least favorite type of card to send, obviously. My friend’s dad passed away suddenly last week, and sometimes a Facebook message or a text just doesn’t cut it. The trick is to write something short, but still let them know that you’re there for them. It’s a hard balance to strike.

Day 100! – Back to the Beginning

Wow! I can’t believe it’s been 100 pieces of mail already! The last time I tried this (almost 3 years ago at this point), I fizzled out quite a bit before this point, so I’m pretty proud of myself for keeping this going.

To celebrate, I’m going back to the beginning of my snail mail journey, to one of my very first penpals from 3 years ago. She and I haven’t written in a while due to illness and life getting in the way, so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to catch up!

I’m sending her a little fountain pen care package along with the letter. Hopefully it’ll make her smile!

Day 99 – Fancy Fan Mail Friday

Okay, so the mail itself isn’t all that fancy, but this stationery sure does look classy! It’s nice enough that I’m sending it to a Senator that I’m a fan of, thanking her for her hard work. Maybe she’ll be happy to receive some nice mail 🙂

I can’t believe that the next piece of mail will be my 100th! I’m working on something kinda special, so we’ll see how it goes this weekend!

Day 98 – Incoming/Outgoing


Today’s post features not one, but TWO postcards! The top one is an outgoing postcard, headed to China, and featuring a view of Petit Jean State Park, one of my favorite places.

The bottom postcard is an incoming card, from Mahilyow, Belarus. The writer states that most of these buildings were lost in WWII, but some are still visible. An interesting little bit of history from a place I’d previously never heard of. Very interesting!

Headed to: China

Day 97 – Late Night Letters


When do you like to write? I find that I’m most comfortable writing late in the evening, which is when I end up doing most of my writing. I tend to be “wordier” when writing at night, interestingly, despite having to get up relatively early for work.

This letter is off to a pen friend in Oregon who passed though here a few weekends ago while on a road trip. Here’s a rare photo of me (right) with Susan (left).
