Envelope Expedition Excerpt:

On a sunny morning on Ahway Island, the breeze was gentle, and the birds chirped merry little songs. Inside a cozy home office, Elodie Envelope sat patiently in a mesh drawer on the desk, looking out at the room. The sun streamed through the window, casting a warm glow. The office was filled with colorful books, vibrant artwork, and a variety of desk supplies. Elodie could smell the sweet scent of flowers from the garden outside, and the sound of leaves rustling in the breeze could be heard faintly through the open window. Elodie loved her home in the cozy office and was content to wait patiently for her upcoming journey.

Elodie had seen many little envelopes come and go from the office. She would watch curiously as C.J.’s dad carefully selected each item to be included in the envelope, folding them neatly and placing them inside.  Sometimes the item was paper he had pulled out of the printer, and sometimes it was a handwritten note. As Elodie observed, she couldn’t help but feel a sense of anticipation. She knew that the envelope was about to embark on a journey full of adventure and surprises, and she couldn’t wait to experience it for herself.
