It is as cute as it sounds.
Jasmine (we met when we were paired in this fun swap) emailed me about an idea she had with her sister Emma Kate.
Emma Kate and I actually had the same due date so our daughters are days apart in age. Felix was born on September 17th and Emma Kate's beautiful girl Scarlett was born on the 21st of September.
It's no secret I love old fashioned letters. I love putting together happy mail and receiving it means even more now as a stay at home Mama.
Jasmine asked if Felix would like to be Scarlett's pen pal. For now, Emma Kate and I will write for them until they are old enough to take over.
In their first letters "they" told each other how they got their names, what foods they were eating, how Scarlett loves swim class and Fe, story time.
Obviously, we hope they will love writing like their Mama's ;) but hopefully this will help get them excited about it for sure (someday this friendship will even be a sweet learning tool for writing/reading).
Some of my very best friends started out as pen pals. In fact, one of my closest friends is my pen pal Sanja who lives in Slovenia. We started writing each other when we were 12 and though we have yet to meet, I love that we text almost daily.
I hope Felix will have those amazing kind of friends in her life.
Scarlett, Felix can't wait to hear from you next. She says she hopes you got her postcard from Virginia XO
