Alright, alright!!

cos-mo-post-al-an [koz-muh-postal-en]: adjective/noun
1. a person
who belongs to all the world; not limited to just one part of the world; can make their home anywhere in the world.
2. a person who believes fully that postage stamps and mail connect the world, regardless of where, from or to, they go.
3. the joyful experience of knowing you're a local because your mail made it to its destination

The postage stamp is truly wonderful. It can travel the world, experience the lives of a million different people, go through the doors of strangers; and never once lose sight of where it's headed.
Welcome to the land of cosmopostalan : travel, mail and words. It's a crazy little place in my corner of the woods; wherever that may be!

Back In Boston

Yesterday's afternoon flight brought us back from St. Louis and straight into a dark-skied Boston. After traveling for entire summer up to this point, I am so ready to relax and not do ANYTHING too stressful for the next week. I wrote out a To-Do list this morning and have managed to get a fair bit of it done, but not enough that it is now inexistent.
I have started to compile presents to my dear friends for their birthdays and celebrations, and am super pumped with the new goodies I have collected over the past few days.

Let me show you just what I mean.

I can now finally say that I am on the printed paper tape bandwagon after purchasing my first 8 rolls over the past week! I really love the colours, and the usability of being able to put the tape down, and remove it, and reuse it, and so on and so forth.

This week, I also bought some GORGEOUS "Spam" notecards, of which I have already used two! I also invested in a "Spam" tin, which holds a gift that is being sent to my dear friend A. within the next few weeks!

I also bought two new stamps, which have already adorned four letters sent out today.
A moustache, and a typewriter. What more does one need?

I am a very lucky young lady, indeed!
Send more mail--the world needs it!
