Sleep-deprived letter from a new mommy

Late-night musings on a pretty envelope

I just got back in touch with a somewhat distant cousin; we used to write to each other when we were kids and in college, and fell off afterwards. (Admittedly, probably my fault.) I heard she just had a new baby (thanks to my mom, who is better about keeping in touch with all the branches of the fam), and so I wrote to her, and she wrote back immediately, and thus a new correspondence is born. I can't believe she writes such thoughtful, sweet letters when she is barely catching sleep, what with the new baby and all. I loved her musings around this envelope.

I wanted to send an extra-special smile, so I wrote her back on my extra-special vintage 80s Alf stationery. (I know, if 80s stationery is now vintage, then I'm now vintage, too!)
