Comment: Thanks for your letter and the sweet washi samples! I envy people who can listen to audiobooks. When I had a long commute I tried to use audiobooks to cope. Took me six months and several near-crashes to get through Lost on Planet China. 😳

I got my first mail for Happy Mail all Month yesterday! Thak you. We do definitely have a lot in common. What an exciting elector your daughter to have as her first! I just finished Radicals and Roses by Susan Zimet about women's suffrage. I am not a big non-ficton person, so I was pleasantly surprised by how engaging it was.
