Even in this digital age, I still send out 'real' mail when I can. Emailing is fast and easy but there's something special about going to the mailbox and finding an envelope that isn't a bill or junk! Something that I have wanted ever since we moved to this house was a custom return address stamp. Random, isn't it?

I was very intrigued when I was contacted about improvements that they've made to their lines and was more than happy to check out their newly improved rain coats!
