The Lost Art...

"It seems a long time since the morning mail could be called correspondence. "
~Jacques Barzun, God's Country and Mine, 1954

Last week I wrote about my book buddy and today I am writing about my NEW pen pal. That's right folks, I said PEN PAL. Are you feeling like you're in third grade again???

I hate junk mail and bills and that is all that seems to fill my sad little mailbox these days. I still feel like a little girl when I get a handwritten (gasp!) note in the mail. I can't wait to rip it open. It brightens my day to have a note from a friend just saying "hello" or "thinking of you."

I want that feeling more often. So...I got myself a pen pal. Yay! Clearly I love stationery since I made a business out of it. I am so excited to write fun little notes on my fabulous stationery to my pal about my day, a funny thing the minis did, a cool quote I read, or just to say hello and pass along that I hope the sun is shining on their day.

This could be a REVOLUTION. Just think if we all got pen pals and brought back to life the written note for FUN. We could all be happy and this could perhaps be the start to creating world peace.

Just think about it...

Have a great day! Cheers!

  1. ;-)

    Couldn't agree w/ you more!
    There is nothing more boring than getting the Pennysaver, electric bills, 401K statements, and stock statements.
    Nothing makes my day more than a handwritten note (not an email).

    Hope you have a great sure to check your mailbox!

  2. It's so funny you brought this up, because I was just thinking the other day about penpals I had as a child - and even in high school. I'd love to have a penpal again!!! I just love writing letters, and getting a wonderful card in the mail from a friend is 1058375 times better than a bill, or even a magazine!

  3. I agree, handwritten notes brighten my day!

    Also I wanted to let you know that I gave you a blog award on my blog. I hope that brightens your day, too!

  4. Notes are way better than bills! I can't wait to use my cards to brighten someone's day :)

  5. Wait a have the exact name as me? This is too weird, because I just met another blogger with the same name as me! So funny! And here I was thinking you were named Molly Lou...


How I love comments...thanks for stopping by and sharing what you are thinking. Cheers!
