Send Snail Mail!

These days we are always connected. Phones, tablets, laptops - you name it. When I was in the third grade I remember being really excited to setup and receive my first e-mail (over dial-up internet no less). To me it was pretty incredible that a message I wrote on my computer screen somehow traveled through my phone line to my best friend's computer screen.

These days though, my inbox is a huge source of stress. Between work, school, blogging and bill payment e-mails I sometimes dread opening up Outlook. But do you know what I never dread receiving? A good 'old fashioned' letter. I love handwritten correspondence because of the effort that goes into it. Picking out the perfect stationery, writing out the perfect message, sending the letter off and waiting to hear if your loved one received it are reasons why I love handwritten letters. 

E-mails are fast and sometimes great, but I think once in a while we should surprise our loved ones with a fun handwritten letter! Plus sending snail mail gives you the perfect opportunity to grab some beautiful stationery and pens! Wins all around!

  2. Snail mail is the BEST. I don't even care if it's total junk at this point...just receiving something in the mailbox the old-fashioned way is a little thrillride for me every time!
