Write Letters

My amazing friend Tanna always reminds me of how much I adore receiving letters in the mail.

We still communicate over text and e-mail (and in person the lucky 3 times a year I get to see her) but there's something about reading her life updates on paper, that she took the time to shop for cute stationery, grabbed her favorite pen, knows my address and even uses adorable little stickers like this one when she's inviting me to her daughter's first birthday party. 

Receiving this note and also seeing the Buzzfeed article 19 Reasons We Should All Start Writing Letters Again has me wanting to get super crafty on my holiday cards this year, never miss a friend's birthday without a personally stamped card (way better than Happy Bday!!! on facebook) and send notes to friends and family 'just because'.

Do you like writing or receiving letters? What makes it so hard to make this a thing if we all love it so much?

I never can find a stamp.. that's why I always have trouble sending cards! :)

I asked twitter friends for their addresses and got three. We have mailed each other each a letter and it was great! I need to do it again but I wanted to wait a while so it would be unexpected. They are all on my Christmas card list this year, for sure!
