52 letters in 2018 (week 15): Get fancy

Week 15 (April 9-15): Get fancy.

Rarely do I walk into a store and think, “Dang, I wish I owned this place,” but that’s exactly how I feel whenever I visit Lawrence, Kansas, and stumble into Wonder Fair (the Print Palace of the Great Plains). It’s on my short “must visit” list for every trip back home, and usually I drop a good chunk of money on postcards and greeting cards. wonder2

This time, however, I blew a small fortune because I also added a new fountain pen, ink, writing paper, and a wax seal to my tab. wonder1

I REGRET NOTHING.wonder3This week, treat yourself to a new pen, or ink, or stationery, or fancy writing paper. It feels indulgent, but you’re also investing in your long distance relationships. Go for it.
