Did you have a pen pal as a kid? I still remember writing letters to one of my best childhood friends, who moved to the north of Germany when I was 10. I would choose the most colorful paper to write on and my favorite stickers to decorate the envelope. Every time a new letter was in the mailbox, I was so happy and giddy and couldn't wait to read it. Well, that was a very long time ago. I had forgotten how lovely it is to receive a handwritten letter filled with magical little things. Not anymore. I have a new pen pal. Yesterday, I opened the first letter and was it ever a beautiful surprise. I couldn't stop smiling all day long. Thank you Julie (say hi on her sweet blog)! You made my day!
Now, it's my turn and I am already excited about it.
Pen pals are the best.
