52 WEEKS OF MAIL...
OKAY, tell me who doesn't look forward to getting a card in the mail... NO ~ not an email message... BUT, a good ole fashion card, letter or postcard, handwritten, with a cool postage stamp in the top right corner?
Do you save "special letters"??
I have a letter from my Grandma Jesse that I keep in a ziplock bag (I know, it's not the best way to preserve a family artifact). When I split the zip open, the scent of cigarettes comes swirling out of the bag. YEP! My grandmother smoked! and although I dislike the smell of cigarettes (sorry if I offend anyone), I love this letter! It's not the subject of the letter as much as having a handwritten letter in a lovely cursive.
Remember letter openers? sealing wax? collecting stamps? scented stationary? penpals?
Remember slitting open the envelope, peeking inside, and pulling out the handwritten message... and storing that lovely message in the envelope to be re-read ~ over & over...
Emails just don't create that same feeling for me!
So, I'm participating in 52 WEEKS OF MAIL... it starts Sunday, October 9th and will end October 7, 2012. I want to "put pen to paper" and create a lasting message for my special friends for an entire year.
How about you? wanna join me?
