28 Days of things I love : Day 5

Hand written notes.

There's something about snail mail that is so exciting and romantic. I think I like them so much, because with email, phones, and texting these days, it's so easy to get in contact with people, but hand written notes just show that someone has taken the extra time and effort to reach out to you. You have to admit. Everyone gets a little excited when they have something other than bills to open when they are sorting their mail.

Exchanging letters on the regular is becoming a lost art and is on it's way to extinction.
Let's bring it back people.

The art of sending a letter:

1. Choose fun stationary

2. Pretty penmanship is important (the art of calligraphy is a bonus!)

** In a weird twist of irony while I was writing this post, my bossman came in to my office (don't tell him what I've been up too(!)) and showed me these letters they just found in our building that got stuck behind some old sheet rock between a Richmonder and her french penpal from 1968. #icantmakethissh*tup #timecapsule #lostart.
