Special Deliveries

5 Sep

August 25th: I may not have gotten any letters today, but what I can tell you about the 25th is that Harper’s appointment went very well. Not only is she a healthy puppy, she’s a spoiled one– everyone at the vet’s office was just loving on her.


And of course I loved on her afterward.

August 27th: After two days without any letters, I was relieved to get Jody’s letter from one mailbox and Amanda’s from the other.

August 28th: It’s my sister-in-law’s due date! My nephew didn’t come yet, but Kristy’s letter helped hold me over.

August 29th: I was really excited to hear from Kari once again.

August 31st: August ended not with a bang but a whimper. I’m not complaining though, I love postcards from Kära.

September 2nd: Prior to heading over to Logan’s open house, I acquired a couple things from Pablo like Friendship Books from a LEPeep and a postcard from a postcrosser. His open house, by the way, went well and he quickly was interested in playing legos with the other kids.

September 3rd: After two days without letters I wound up getting two. Thank you, Jody and Kayla.

September 4th: I woke up yesterday morning and found out that my nephew was born the night before! Meet Jack!


I have yet to meet the little guy, but I adore him already. He was 6 days late, just like his cousin Logan, so those extra days really do make all the difference! I love the mail I acquired, but Jack might have been the most special delivery this past week, hehe.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~


“Fetching” the Mail

15 Aug

Introductions to these mail calls hardly seem necessary anymore as they not only mention the mail I’ve been responding to, but what we’ve been up to. That said…

August 6th: My first letters of the week– Jody’s and Kayla’s–  came today, though I was a bit preoccupied with this arrival to spend a whole lot of time writing…

Meet Harper! She is a beagle we acquired thanks to a FB friend of mine. Getting a puppy is something Gabe and I have talked about for a while, and the planets just seemed to finally align. With the way she plays with the boys yet acts like a lazy housecat with me, I’ve been saying she fits in like a puzzle piece. There’s some puppy kinks we need to work out yet, of course, but no matter how frustrated I get, I don’t regret getting her for a second.

August 7th: Justine also has a beagle so out of all the pen pals I could have heard from, I’m glad it was her today.

August 9th: It’s a good thing I checked in on Pablo Sunday because he had Leslie’s letter and some mail art per my vacation contest.

August 10th: Manolo was so kind to me come Monday. He had a postcard from Kayla, letters from Stephanie and Kristy, and the prints I ordered.

August 11th: Then Pablo showed me love in the form of letters from Jenn and Katy. Speaking of Katy, my PPOTM, check out her most recent doodle:

August 13th:
I was a happy tater tot to A) get my weekly letter from Jody and B) a much, much anticipated letter from Kari.

August 14th: I did get postcards yesterday, just not in the mail! My mom came over yesterday afternoon, and she brought these with her (along with some yummy stuff):

I’m looking forward to seeing what today’s mail has in store for me, and spending the weekend with my two favorite guys and our new favorite dog. All the best!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

P.S. On the 6th, Kära posted what she received from Jenn per my Secret Santa shop. Wowza!
