After a spring full of new penpals, I'm down to 2 (both from the States). I figured this would be the case, and it's totally fine, because writing to more than a few people on a regular basis is truly exhausting. I found some cute autumnal stationary at BN a few weeks ago, which I'm loving, and I plan to get Brad to design more personalized stationary for me soon as well.
Because I'm in the midst of writing my thesis, I have the joy of reading through some of the Bronte sister's letters, which I find fascinating. Maybe when I'm not so busy with other projects, I'll write a book about letter writing in the 19th Century. Just a thought.
