Sealed with Love Forever Stamps (By Graphic designer Louise Fili, Art director Derry Noyes, & Illustrator Jessica Hische)

Also just in time for Vday, the United States Postal Service launched these lovely new stamps! I've been really impressed with the ole' USPS lately. This year's new stamps are really wonderful. But with the recent announcement about no mail service on Saturday, I've been laying awake at night thinking about a world without stamps. A world where everything is shipped with a bar code. It's not a world i'm excited about, but likely a world I'll live to see. What's a love letter without the perfect stamp? Cue Sara's inevitable hoarding of USPS ephemera...

New Blogaway: (Blog giveaway!) What's your favorite new stamp? OR  What thoughtful thing did your sweetie do for Vday? The author of my favorite comment today will receive: Option 1) a bundle of our blank letterpress postcards and a selection of fun stamps! OR Option 2) Their choice of 1 item from our You & Me Series!

Happy Birthday Abraham

Today is Abraham Lincoln's birthday, a day that I really like to celebrate!

In honor of what would have been his 204th birthday (if he was zombie Lincoln), here are some Abe related links & quotes that are pertinent to daily life:

Never let your correspondence fall behind. -A. Lincoln

Keep your correspondence up to date with our Abe is a Babe or Epic Abe card, and one of these rad new Emancipation Proclamation stamps by the United States Postal Service!

Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today. -A. Lincoln

Today i'm going to finally watch the Lincoln movie. Brad & I have been so busy these past few years that we tend to catch new movies on Red Box instead of in the theater. But no more waiting Abe, I promise! We watched Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter during my birthday week and it was a-maz-ing! I'm pretty sure i'll be disappointed by the Lincoln movie's lack of cheesy fight scenes on horseback, but i'll give it a try anyway. (It really was a giant cheese fest, but I enjoyed the heck out of it.)

The better part of one's life consists of his friendships. -A. Lincoln
