Mail for a college girl

Good morning.  Think of me today... I'm taking my oldest daughter to college.  She will be going to my
alma mater, University of North Dakota.  She might even pledge my sorority, Delta Gamma.  I have such wonderful memories of that place and I know she will too.   I still see some of my sorority sisters weekly... one even lives down the street.

One of the things I promised was that I would send her mail every week.  I went to Archiver's last week and made a bunch of cards...

I'm always amazed what you can come up with with a few patterned pieces of paper...

Thinking of her opening them up at college helps... a little.  
Are you on instagram yet?  My username is thevintageumbrella.  I'm addicted!  It gives an unexpected peek into people's lives.  And like many of the best things in life... it's free!


  1. I will be thinking of you. I remember taking my son off 2 years ago and it was happy and sad at the same time. I love the card idea!

  2. I can only imagine how hard it is to let your child go away. How neat it is she will be going to your alma mater. Stay strong and I remember in college, I lived to get mail. So, I know she will love it. Gosh Jenni, I miss your blog for a few days and I have missed so much news from you.

  3. Hi Jenni, I sent mail to my kids in college every week...and sometimes if their friends were lucky they got mail from me too. Loved finding bargains to send or baking cookies/treats to send. The cards are a cute idea. She is one lucky girl. Hope all is well.
