Remember pen pals? For that matter, remember writing actual letters?? with a pen??? I remember being assigned a pen pal in elementary school. My pen pal was in Germany so it could take up to two weeks before I heard back from her. I remember just how exciting it was to get mail.

For some, letter writing is a lost art. For others, it's an art they never even learned (thanks to modern technology). Still there's something so exciting about getting a card in the mail and it's such a great way to be able to encourage friends who are far away. I like to think of it as a hug in an envelope. :D

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love sending and receiving actual mail. There is something so personal about a letter. It just takes more thought and caring than an email.

BTW your hm card is adorable and so pretty and feminine.

I lived in Spain and my penpal was in OK

Funny you should mention penpal. I blogged about the lost art of letter writing a few days ago. Absolutely love receiving "real" mail, the sort that takes days, sometimes weeks to reach its destination. Throughout high school I had a penpal from Milwaukee. We kept in touch until she got married at 18 and went to Germany. Never heard from her since. That's sad...rambling again! Sorry! :-)
