Bonjour, tout le monde! I am now in jolly old England... err... London... well, by the time this is posted, I'll be on a train to Bath (one of my most favourite-ist places in the world) and all this zooming around has made me a bit sad. You see, my aunt (one of my most favourite-ist people in the world) spends winter breaks and most of the summer in England and I have made the journey with her during the winter 3 times within the last few years. Usually, as we're 'sploring the world, we'd pick up postcards and send them to our ancient penpal... a friend of my grandpa/her dad from the war named Andy.
He was stationed in England during WWII and loved to read all about our various adventures. He would usually respond with a long letter to my aunt thanking us for including him in our sundry journeys, but the last time we were in England together, we didn't get a letter. He didn't really have much family left, so we googled his name and found his obituary. It was so strange to sit at The Globe last night and take in the third and final installation of Henry VI and then browse through the gift shop and NOT get Andy a postcard.
... and so, now that my somewhat melancholy story has been told, I would like to propose something to all of you! Let's be pen pals! Please, oh please, oh please! It will be such fun! I love snail mail... especially when it comes from all over the world! Think on it, and if you want to give it a go, shoot me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll get ourselves set up! Until then, please enjoy these photos of little bits and bobs of inspiration. It's been a long time since I've posted a Monday Morning Motivation, so here 'ya go!
Don't forget to enter to win a very vintage-looking bottle of rose water from Margarita Bloom!
