Snail Mail

In this day and age when communication is instantaneous it is so wonderful to receive correspondence via the good ol U.S. Postal Service! Letter writing seems to be a lost art. I want to make a better effort at sending out a little piece of happiness a couple times a month!

Some might say, what's the big deal? The big deal is that someone took the time to sit down and write me a letter. Paid around half a dollar to mail it and actually dropped it in a mailbox. There's a bit more energy and effort required to send a letter. To put a cherry on top of this I also received pictures! Actual hard copies of pictures! Once again, in this digital world we live in, who has time for real pictures?

Thank you Marcie for your little piece of sunshine that came in the mail today! I loved everything about it, from the sunflower yellow envelope to the awesome return address logo! Was that a stamp? If so where did you get it made? I will definitely be returning the sweet gesture in the near future!

Until a few years ago I had a box full of notes that Marcie had written to me. One of my greatest regrets is that the box got ruined In a move. In school that was the best way to to tell your friend something. Even if it was just to tell them how bored you were. Even better were the doodles you would inevitably draw in the margins. Of course what note wouldn't be complete without your current crushes name! Please tell me kids still write notes to each other and that it's not just text mesages!

When was the last time you sent or received some good old fashioned snail mail? When was the last time you passed a note?  I encourage you all to put a little effort in your communication this week. Make someone's day with a letter or note. Include something fun in it like confetti or use awesome stationary!

Let me know what you think in the comments below!


  1. It IS a stamp! I love it... It was somewhat expensive but hopefully we will be in this house for a long time and I'll get my money's worth. I got it with a coupon code from And you're welcome! 😃
