Hey, it's me again!

Hello there, everyone!

Wow, it's been such a looooooooooong time since I last logged in and posted something on this blog! Actually, I had given up snail mail blogging in favor of book blogging (I've run a book blog in French for one year now and I totally love it), but I lately realized that I was missing mail blogging, too. So, here I am again!

However, I won't keep up with "Me my mail and I". I had a lovely journey with this blog but this time is over now, I need something new. That's why I started a new blog : Enjoy the Silence. This time I decided to give Wordpress a try, I'm not as familiar with it as I am with Blogger, but hopefully soon I'll be an expert and can make something nice out of this platform.

The name I chose for the new blog isn't mail related because although I will mostly talk about mail on it, it won't be a "mail only" blog. I'll write one post per week (every Friday) about either letters, or books, or music... well basically anything I'd like to share with you that particular week.

I hope to see you soon on this new blog!

Last letters of the summer!

Well, technically there's still 18 days till the end of the summer, but I personally consider that summer ends beginning of September since everyone's back home and school is about to start (I go back to uni on the 9th - and I'm not looking forward to that u_u). 

So, let's start autumn the best way possible... with letters! :D 

First here are the letters I wrote lately...

To Edyta, Poland. I wrote it weeks ago, she's already received it.
To Audrey, Germany (she has already received it too)
To Sille, Estonia
And to Sanna, Finland. These two letters haven't been received yet since I mailed them out yesterday only

On the incoming side, I haven't gotten much, but the three pieces of mail that hit my mailbox were awesome! I have so lovely friends ♥

A package from Andra, full of loveliness she bought for me in Turkey. Thanks again, my dear. I love everything ♥
A great first letter from Nina, Germany
And finally, three envelopes from the same girl, Lavendel in Norway
The purple one contained a (long) letter
The blue one contained cards
Aaand, the bubble one was filled with lavender tea samples! I had never heard about lavender tea, but it smells divine and I'm looking forward to trying it :)

That's all! I hope you're having a wonderful start of autumn, and good luck to all those who're starting again with school/uni/work at the moment :)

Love, Tári

As promised: the big incoming update!

Hei hei! Here I come again! :) After showing you all my outgoing mail for the past month, here's my incoming for the same period of time. I haven't count how many letters I got during these 4 weeks I didn't post anything here, but there are quite a few :) Still I'm catching up pretty fast and even though I don't think I'll be all caught up by September when uni starts, at least I won't be three months late on my mail anymore.

Alright, here are the letters:

From my "secret penpal", Edyta in Poland. How happy I was to find out she's been assigned to write me a letter for a random letter swap! I hope she'll like my reply and that we'll become longlasting friends :3

From an "old" friend, Marita in Norway, along with some stunning picture of her last trip to Norwegian mountains

From Ramona in Germany

From Andra in Romania, along with Turkish tea bags that I haven't tried yet because it's too hot for hot tea at the moment

From Lou in the UK

From Shelby in the USA

I also received...

Two books, my first order from The Book Depository. A webstore you should definitely check if you read in English! (or maybe you shouldn't, because your wallet might not like it :P )

Card from my Dutch friend Jenny

And a lovely bookmark from Manon, a friend of mine.
And that's all! Enough things to keep me busy till the end of my summer holidays, right ;)

Love, Tári
PS: What do you think of the new layout of the blog?
