incoming mail and sweet treats

Hi everyone!

Yesterday I received some mail from Stefany, a young German woman from Snail Mail Ideas.  I was the one who sent her an initial letter and she didn’t have to send anything back, but I’m really glad she did.  I never ended up getting mail from whoever was paired with me (maybe it was lost?  something went wrong?) so I was a bit disheartened.

Her mail really cheered me up!  It was so absolutely cute and I couldn’t stop smiling when I opened it.  Her handwriting is adorable and the card itself was very creative.  She included tea, a sweet letter, and a little wrapped package with some paper crafting things.  I absolutely love it!

I’m working on a response already and I’ll send that out later.  I’m trying to go for a reddish theme… I like color-themed letters but don’t have the hang of it just yet.

In other news, I baked today!  I tutor two young girls on Thursdays and promised I would bring some treats along, since this is the last session before break.  I made cupcakes for one and cookies for the other… hopefully they’ll like them.  They’re both vegan, and even though I used completely new recipes, everything was delicious!  The cookies are buttery from coconut oil and the cupcakes smell so sweet and chocolatey… yum!

Hope all of you are having a wonderful day!
