Elvis is in the building!

Good morning all you amazing people in the world. Today is a great day because for once, I woke up early. Normally, I'd just be waking up at this time. (8:45 a.m.) I got out of bed at 6:00 o'clock this morning, bursting with energy. It must be all the juicing I've been doing. Yay. It feels good to be among the normal people who actually have to get up early to go to work. (not that I work, but you know what I mean).

I received a fantastic pen pal letter recently from a wonderful person. She always uses such quality stationery. I hadn't heard from her in awhile so it definitely put a lift in my mood. Check it out.

She also sent me the two postcards you see in the photo as well. But that's not all.

I am a HUGE Elvis Presley fan. 
Some of you may know that I spent my honeymoon in Tennessee specifically to see Graceland.
 It was a dream come true.

So when I saw this inside the envelope too, I was ecstatic.

Elvis was such a goodlooking, sexy, hunk of a man. Oh, sorry. On with the mail.
It looks like a postcard but it's actually an envelope. It is absolutely  amazing and I love it.
Thank you, Rachel. You're a peach, so sweet. I will treasure this for as long as I live.

My dear readers, what are some of your favorite items that you have received from pen pals?
I'm curious to know.

Have a fabulous day my friends. I look forward to your comments.

How did I not know this about you?! When I was at the stamp-show last weekend one booth had a whole corner of Elvis stamps and die-cuts and stencils and stuff! I totally would have picked something up for you! Maybe next year... :-)
(I feel like I don't know you at all now! What else are you hiding from me?! I feel like this is like you not knowing I had cats!) :-)
