Fun Mail

After a productive day at work followed by a trip to the grocery store, there’s nothing I like more than coming home to a fun package. I opened up the puffy envelope and peered inside: It’s a package from E (of PokingMyEyesOut)! Inside was a pair of Clover bamboos in US2 that I lent her […]
