If you’re like me, you have friends and family spread out all over the place. Technology has made it so much easier to stay connected, but there’s something special about communicating through a handwritten note. I love emails and texts as much as the next person, but I really love opening my mailbox to find a lovely handwritten “just because” letter. It makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside! I not only appreciate the content from the heart, but I also love to see what card or paper was chosen and there’s something just so magical about seeing pen on paper… I can’t explain it. My mom lives about 10 minutes away and she sends me little “just because” letters every so often and it makes me so happy! She’s been doing this since I moved to College and has since continued the tradition. So, you don’t even have to be far away to share that experience.
I inherited my grandma’s vintage greeting cards, and thought that I’d share them with my loved ones. So, a couple of weeks ago I started writing little notes to family and friends to see how they’re doing and what adventures lay ahead. It’s nice to surprise someone once in a while, even if it’s with something little. Have you written a letter recently? ♥R

You’re totally right – getting a surprise in the mail is such a great feeling. When I was a little girl, I would write back and forth with my Aunts. When they’d send a reply letter, they would always include something special like a $2 bill or a special sheet of stickers. Such fun memories!

That’s so sweet, Chrissy! You have some amazing aunts and that’s so special that they did that with you consistantly when you were little. Those memories stick with you forever. I love that!
