First of all, thank you for stopping by this blog! It is something I’ve wanted to start since picking up the first letter of this collection, and I’m so thankful for anyone who has a shared interest and wants to follow this journey with me in uncovering this love story. Though I don’t consider myself a true romantic (yet), reading these letters reminds me of how concrete and powerful and lovely the written word can be.
Besides these letters, I also love collecting all sorts of random, beautiful objects. All of which reside in my apartment (which is getting quite full). I am the proud owner of many old things…..2 typewriters, 2 radios, 3 trunks, 1 public telephone booth, 1 giant film reel of the 1940 film “Bittersweet”, 1 parking meter, 2 velvet-lined theater chairs, 5 vintage suitcases, 3 microphones, 1 large marquee sign letter, 1 cash register, 1 gumball machine, 1 1940s masquerade mask, 1 first edition Boxcar Children’s book, 1 violin from early 1900s, 2 projectors, 5 rotary phones, 1 set of stage lights, 1 set of boxing gloves, 1 set of opera binoculars, 1 set of WWII army supply items and 45 various old cameras scattered throughout 800 square feet.
When I’m not collecting oddities, I have a job that keeps me plenty busy as a Development Manager of an Event Planning company just outside of Chicago. I’m also dabbling into a bit of photography and cooking (most of which are edible). I’m an avid reader (thanks Goodreads!) and want to continue to travel more.
If you would like to reach out to me privately, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your interest and happy reading!
