I found out the package I sent to my new pen pal in the UK arrived safely today! I’m a big fan of snail mail, stationery etc. She is sending a package my way shortly, just in time for it to arrive right when I get back to Chicago. I’ve been having a little trouble with my mail arriving to me safely, so hopefully all goes well! 
I have another new pen pal which once they move into their college dorm I’ll be sending something their way too! This only a few states away so postage won’t be as much of a bummer.

This isn’t as pertinent to my life in Chicago as my other posts, but I couldn’t help but share the cute little parcel I put together! :)
