Notes From My Friend Julia (Sort of…)

I have a constant stationary crush. I could spend hours perusing the shelves of Papyrus or Paper Source and have coughed up many of my hard-earned dollars on Crane and Co. paper goods (seriously though, how cute are my newest little pink bee notes!?).

Another strange crush of mine comes in the form of a deceased, six-foot-two female. No, not a b-ball player, the one and only Julia Child. With that boisterous voice and no-nonsense boldness in the kitchen, how could you not want to befriend her?

Anyways, a recent discovery has me crushin’ more than ever on a perfect combination of the two. Alexandra’s Kitchen’s Julia Child Notecards bring some of JC’s serious sass to paper. The insanely cute (and well-priced!) notes are printed with some of Julia’s best anecdotes on living like “Life itself is the proper binge” and “You’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.” Others offer philosophies on food along the lines of “Every woman should have a blowtorch” and “The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook” (true dat, sista!).

Now that I’ve found a marriage of two of my love interests, I’ll be coughing up the cash to buy both the standard version and the birthday cards (how could I resist this one?) to appease my note-writing habits in the new year.

After all, there are worse things to stockpile than stationary. And, as my wannabe friend Julia would say, “Everything in moderation… including moderation.”
