Hello! It has been a loooong time since we’ve posted an update. Sorry about that!
I wanted to write about writing letters.
Recently, I joined a group of penpals called the League of Extraordinary Penpals. If you are looking to join back onto the snail mail bandwagon, I highly recommend this group! It’s really wonderful.
The thing about writing letters is that it is so personal. I had forgotten the joy of getting hand-addressed envelopes in my mailbox. It’s so nice to get something other than bills or credit card applications. Letter writing takes effort, but learning about strangers through through hand-written letters is really wonderful. If you haven’t ever had a penpal, you should definitely check it out. It’s really fun and I get really excited to check the mail these days. Or, if you don’t feel comfortable writing to strangers, write a letter to your grandma, or send a birthday card to your second cousin. It’s worth the 47 cents.
Here are some envelopes I’ve “doodled” recently..
