I hope this beautiful Thursday morning finds you well rested. Today's blog is going to be about Shawnee Mills. Now, you're probably wondering, who is this Shawnee? Well, she is an adventurer, an artist, a creative, my previous roommate, a wife (S/O to Palmer Grigsby for sweeping her off her feet) and above else a dear friend.
Moving on to the point! Shawnee has started a business, Letters From Afar. In a nutshell, she hand writes and paints letters that then are delivered to you in the mail. That's right, SNAIL MAIL. A dying art form.
On to the letters ... each one follows a woman named Isabella Bird. Isabella is an English explorer, writer, photographer, and naturalist. Every month you'll receive said letter about Isabelle's most recent travels. It's a fun way to learn about the world.
It'd be rude for me to explain all the finer points in one measly blog post, so, I'd recommend visiting the website itself: https://lettersafar.com
