I love the idea of pen pals.
In fact, when I was pretty young about 11 or 12, I met a boy over the internet and we exchanged addresses!!!! I KNOW!!!!!!! SO not ok these days! My Dad was ahead of the times with online games for kids (not many of my friends were on the computer all that much) and I came across one with a chat room! We stayed friends for a couple of years writing (pen and paper) about where we lived and what we were up to.
Perhaps this is why I enjoy blogging so much.
It's a friendship/acquaintance with people from all over the world who you wouldn't normally come across.
Not only do you get to chat back and forth with them through comments, but
we share pictures, styles, clothing, and lifestyles with each other.
It's kind of like modern pen pals.
I read this incredibly sweet story this morning and realized that the news,
though generally a downer, can be uplifting and lighthearted too, at times!

Here's to hoping that you find something fantastic, exceptional, and unexpected this week!!!
