Snail Mail


Kate sent some sweet, snail mail lovin’ back to me just a few weeks ago and surprised me with an envelope of delightful goodies! Also, just look at how cute her packaging was! I cracked up after seeing this darling little snail that she drew to mimic the sticker I had included on the envelope I sent her last month!


After opening the package, I discovered a postcard and some beautiful handmade (and recycled!) notebooks that she made for me by using old cereal boxes; oh this girl. They are the perfect size for traveling and I can’t wait to use them this summer to document my adventures!

Just wait Kate; you have a few surprises coming back your way and I cannot wait for you to receive them!



P.S. Can I just be all gushy really quick and share with you how sweet this friend of mine is. My birthday was yesterday (May 8th), and although I had to work, I had the best day ever! Thanks to Kate, she made my day even more special by surprising me with a phone call with all of her little preschoolers in the background singing happy birthday to me! It truly touched my heart and I just thought the world show know that. End of gushy moment.

New Series: Snail Mail!

I’m so excited to introduce a new segment to OSS – Snail Mail! 

I love getting letters! When I see one peeking out that is something other than a bill or coupons I get really excited!

Notice a cute envelope popping out? Hooray! snail mail from my BFF in VA! One guess as to who it is…you’re right! Jamie! 

Remember this cute post Jamie did on making your own envelopes from recycled magazine envelopes? Well I am a lucky recipient of one! Its contents were just as great. Filled with all kinds of goodies – a letter, photos she took, gift cards. My favorite though was one she took using her Instax Camera of my hubby making pancakes during our visit to VA. Isn’t he so cute?!
