FIFTEEN post image

IMG_0967 In 1997 I met a guy at music festival & knew in my heart (right away) that he was the one. We lived on opposite coasts + fell in love writing letters to each other over a year. When he proposed to me after we had only seen each for the 3rd time, everyone in our lives thought we were crazy. I will tell you that it was the best ‘yes’ that I have ever spoken. I married my best friend, and my soulmate partner in life. Our marriage is by no means perfect, but it’s true and we’re committed till the end. Today Joshua & I are celebrating 15 years!
The picture above on the right is my most cherished. It was taken of us in deep conversation on the day we met.

Postal Pairings | Wild Fern post image

Wild Fern | Urbanic Paper Boutique

Did you know that Fern in ancient times was actually “fearn” which meant Feather?  Okay, we are obviously geeking out over here with postage stamp facts, but can you blame us? These recently released Fern Forever Stamps  are so darn pretty, they got us on a fern kick over here! That being said, naturally we are pairing it with one of our favorite things from  around the shop, -  The wild fern candle by Linnea’s Lights.  I wish our computer screens had a scratch & sniff option so you could smell the crisp, clean, leafy fragrance it burns. A perfect summertime scent!
