When I was seven, I was in love with my babysitter's red-headed son.

Andy is the first crush I can remember. I was seven. I moved away when I was almost nine, and Andy said he'd be my penpal.

We wrote each other twice.

This is my favorite of the two.

I particularly LOVE the framed photos of us in the underground house. We're wearing crowns.

I eventually moved back to Maine and Andy was still a wonderful friend to me, even after all the time that had passed. He still has red hair, and even though my seven-year-old-self had fallen out of love with him, I still appreciated him being so kind and helping me survive high school.

Have you ever had a penpal like that?


  1. Love the picture and old letter. Thats too cute and really cool your still friends. I had a few pen pals when friends we move away but sadly the letters would eventually stop.

  2. Haha!! I love that!

    My favorite is the nervous breakdown part. It's so funny to evesdrop on little kid's conversations with eachother. They say the funniest things!

  3. what a cute post Liv!!! I love your blog!!
