  1. I do not seriously care how or once i get the Letters in the Mail. Every time it arrives, it feels like a letter should be. It’s suddenly there in my mail box one particular day. A great, tangible surprise. I am for you doing whatever you want when you send it. Mix it up for that people today who help get it sent out. Include crumbs from your lunch. Coffee stains. Whatever. Keep the tedious nature of getting letters out to a minimum by doing whatever you feel like that day. The arrival from the letter and the words with the author inside are what matters. Personally, what I like most effective about The Rumpus is that I by no means understand what I’ll read through that day. Or if there isn’t one that day, maybe it’s because Stephen couldn’t find anything to say or there was far too much going on.

  2. Hey amiga!!! I like the dress but… I think the top is SO YOU!! So colorful and free flowing- that’s my choice for you. You’ll produce a splash in either. I like the Limited but haven’t shopped there inside a while- thanks for that reminder. Hugs!!
