the love parcel


Little Update

I’m incredibly behind on emails/messages. I spied a bunch of super nice/caring ones that I can’t wait to respond to so I promise I’m not ignoring you guys!!

I have 19 names left on my list of people to make parcels for (who have sent me something). I also haven’t checked my PO Box in a while so the list may even be longer. I feel so drained and burnt out. To be honest, I’ve been feeling really uninspired and frustrated lately. Nothing feels “right.” I don’t know. Anyways…the point of this blog post is to announce that I’m going to be taking a hiatus from accepting mail from new people (people who have never exchanged with me, at any time) after this month. I hope to spend July really pushing and getting replies out to every single person who has sent me something (I know some of you have been waiting a decade for me, I’m sorry). This project has been really crazy and successful but so much, including myself, has changed since it started. I really need to take some time to figure out what direction I want to take The Love Parcel, or if I even want to continue with it, honestly. Knowing myself, I don’t think I’ll be able to just throw it all away, but I definitely need to make some changes. I’m just unsure of what those changes will be at this time. Huge thank you to everyone who’s always shown me love and support though! It really means a lot.

“‘Never love a wild thing, Mr. Bell,’ Holly advised him. That was Doc’s mistake. He was always lugging home wild things. A hawk with a hurt wing. One time it was a full-grown bobcat with a broken leg. But you can’t give your heart to a wild thing: the more you do, the stronger they get. Until they’re strong enough to run into the woods. Or fly into a tree. Then a taller tree. Then the sky. That’s how you’ll end up, Mr. Bell. If you let yourself love a wild thing. You’ll end up looking at the sky.”

So I got this amazing care package from @instagram filled with some neat stuff. I can’t believe how much this little (free) app plays into my everyday life and it really shapes how I see the world (everything in little squares). I’m so grateful because I know so many amazing people through here, which isn’t something that I could have predicted when I started the account and is now something that I can’t imagine life without ❤️

Last nights mail work and one of my favorite photos of my dad because it’s his birthday 🍰
