"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!
