Meet Lilly the sock monkey. Lilly came to me after a random obsession with all the different types of sock monkeys you can find on Ebay. It’s incredible how many different types exist. At any given time there are several hundred!
The concept of Lilly’s persona has evolved since she arrived at my house. At first I thought I’d take all kinds of funny pics with her all around town and she’d be my travel buddy. And maybe she’d have her own blog. But, who am I kidding? I really don’t have the time to keep up not only my own blog, but Lilly’s blog as well. So I went back to the drawing board with Lilly.
And what I came up with is this:
Lilly is going to serve as a pen pal for two kids that live in Kansas. Lilly will send letters and photos of her adventures to these kids. I even have purchased a sock monkey stamp kit to decorate her letters with.
Lilly hasn’t had her first adventure yet, but by the end of the first day of 2015, she’ll have written her first letter.
One of my goals in 2015 is to write more handwritten letters, and it will be so much fun to know that Lilly will bring joy to a couple of children (and maybe more at some point). If interested, let me know. It’ll be a fun exchange. 🙂
So, meet Lilly. From time to time she’ll appear on here (probably when the letters go out).
