My Undeniable Love for Snail Mail

By Jessicavenoy @lovelyjesscuh
I'm pretty sure that I've made it perfectly clear just how much I adore snail mail. All kinds of it!
I love a good mail day...you know the days when you open your mailbox to find the cutest little handwritten letter or a package that you've been impatiently waiting for? Those days are awesome. I find myself running into my apartment and throwing everything else on the ground so that I can dedicate all of my attention to the mail...am I the only one who does that? Emails are wonderful, but there is nothing like getting some good old fashioned snail mail, you know?
I love writing letters, too! Especially when I get to write them on adorable stationary. Kind of like this:

I have a list of all of the thank you letters and just because letters that I need to write and send out. My list was getting a bit out of control when Natalie from A Moment of Wonderful told me about her new Etsy shop wonderfulwriting. I was planning on buying some stationary since my old set (the blue & green pictured above) was running slim. I had 8 letters to write this weekend and only 5 cards left. UH OH.
Well Natalie pretty much saved me and sent me 3 of her creations for me to write letters on and send to others! How sweet is she?! Let me answer that for you...really freaking sweet! :) She is just starting up her shop, so if you are in the market for some stationary HIT HER UP! I promise you that she is absolutely one of the sweetest people to work with! Thanks for letting me show off your work, Natalie! ..............................................................
Saturday I went mountain biking with a good friend, Danielle. We hit the trails for almost 3 hours and it was SO MUCH FUN. I know that I live in Florida and there aren't any mountains here, but I promise you that this bike ride was intense! I love getting fit and having fun while doing it. Biking is a great way to get in some cardio, while still having fun with friends!
This is us "prepping" for the ride. You know, adjusting our CamelBaks (yes, we bought CamelBaks) and putting air in our tires...being legit bikers and all.

We had so much fun riding the trails and looking at all of the beautiful things that surrounded us, despite the 95*+ heat that was beating on us the entire time...

The aftermath - my dirty legs & ankles. Pretty disgusting but SO worth it. After we biked, we stopped at Publix to get subs for lunch. When I got home I walked into my apartment and I kid you not...I fell asleep on the floor right inside the door. I was PASSED OUT.

After we napped and showered (one of the best showers of my life...I was disgusting) we got ready and got sushi and fro-yo...2 of my favorite things!

Then on Sunday it was the infamous Toy's birthday! Toy is my Grandma for those of you who don't know. UM how awesome does she look for being almost 70?! PRETTY DANG GOOD if you ask me! Thank you for the good genes, Grandma ;) And the other picture is my Granddad & I. He has lost A LOT of weight since January, when he decided to revamp his life and start living a healthy lifestyle. I'm so proud of him!

And I couldn't leave this one out...we were trying to snap pictures in between the random bursts of wind. Yeah, our timing was a little off on this one. Check out my sweet hair...

Hey at least it's long enough to finally be blown crazily by the wind right?! ;)
