I'm all moved!


Greetings from Washington, DC! We are all safely moved, and if not completely settled, we are happily settling in. My stationery is (mostly) unpacked, and my writing desk is nearly set up, and my etsy shop is once again open for business.

There are a lot of things to do and to learn with a move - where is the best grocery store? Gotta get that new driver's license, etc - so I'm still pretty busy, but I hope to be more of a presence and back into more regular blogging (and letter-writing!) soon. If anyone has any recommendations for interesting activities for letter-writers in Washington, DC, do let me know!

In other news, I just had my 1000th Postcrossing postcard registered - it was US-2259464 to Germany - so I'm pretty excited about that big milestone, too.

  2. Short answer is that work, husband's and mine, brings us to DC. I'd love to meet other mail enthusiasts! I'm planning on doing as many of the DC mail socials as I can, now that I'm here.

    1. NO NEW STATIONERY! I barely fit what I've got now into my new place.

  7. Congrats! Wow, it's almost a week now. Are you in love with the place? We learned lots about DC while our daughter lived there for 8 years. Still in love with all the free museums, and the parks. Try Zaytinya restaurant over my the National Portrait Gallery, just one of many restaurants in the district. Who knows, maybe we can meet up sometime.

    1. Zatinya is already on my list (good GF/veggie options) "of interest," I'm going to prioritize that based on your recommendation! Yay! And of course, definitely I'd love to meet up, do let me know if you're in town!

    1. Sure, Donna, all set - but you know theideaowl.com redirects right back to your blogspot, right?
