Nothing made me happier recently than receiving a few penpal letters upon my return home this past Saturday from Chicago. There's just something so special about opening a physical letter - that, and being part of a sort of cross-cultural and global exchange.
Look at this stuff! These three letters are from Denmark, England, and even my home state of California. These girls are so sweet and generous, and I always love receiving music recommendations, little pieces of art, and other goodies from them. I also love having somewhere to actually send my art (and stupid little trinkets). I know penpal-ing might seem a little old-fashioned, but it really is all it's cracked up to be!
