My penpal Stéphanie from France!

I have quite a few wonderful penpals and I might introduce them all to you one at a time in the future, but today I want to tell you about someone in particular.

Stéphanie lives in France with her husband & their son where they have a manga bookstore. We write our letters in French since it's our first language. Although we haven't known each other for such a long time yet, I feel close to her and she's someone I know I can count on.

Stéphanie is caring & generous and sent me 2 awesome packages in December - one for my 30th birthday and one for Christmas.

Here are a few photos of the birthday presents she enclosed!

I haven't taken pictures of the Christmas package, but it included a few handmade cards as well as a book she thought I'd like. It's about a little girl's education in Japan in the 1940's. I'm sure I'll enjoy it!

Stéphanie has a great sense of humor and always makes me laugh. She's thoughtful, genuine, curious, open-minded and understanding. She's always interested in what I'm going through, she often comments on my blog posts & Facebook updates and she even orders stationery from me! She has a healthy outlook on life and I'm glad that she's part of my life now!

Merci, ma chère Stéphanie!
