Lovely Letters 15 – A Snail Mail Blog Community

Welcome to Lovely Letters, a snail mail blog community and monthly exchange. We’ve had a wonderful year and met so many awesome bloggers, but lately life has been kicking both of us in the butt. We’ve decided that this (November / December) will be the last Lovely Letters exchange. We’re sad to see it go. We hope that you have enjoyed connecting with other bloggers and will continue to keep in touch with your snail mail BFFs.

For September, I was paired with Rae of Insolence and Wine, and from the name you can probably guess that she blogs about wine among other things! I enjoyed getting to know her and definitely appreciated how honest and open she has been on her blog. Go check it out!

This month was back to school themed, and who doesn’t love back to school shopping?

{ BACK TO SCHOOL } package:
one lovely letter
stabilo pens (these are my favorite pens)
wine gift adornment with chalkboard label (since she loves her wine)
photo journal (her husband loves photography)
some fave teas from harney & sons (they are simply the best!)
sharing our korean and japanese candy from treatsjapan crate

I guess the only back to school themed item were the pens, but I’m not sure what else we still use as an adult when you’re out of school. Do any of you still use folders, trapper keepers, etc? I try my best to follow the monthly themes, but ultimately it’s usually better to just go with what you think your partner will like. Will update you on the package I get once we get back in town!
