Handwritten letters. A thing of the past?

When was the last time you wrote a letter? Not an email, but a letter. You know, the old-fashioned, hand-written kind that had a stamp on it? 

Yeah, I can't remember the last time I did either. But I do remember how much I LOVED getting letters in the mailbox. Now, I check the mail only 1-2x/week because I know the only thing in it will be bills.

Does our younger generation even know how to write letters? Have they ever received a letter in the mailbox? As for the older generation who still remembers those days fondly, I bet they would love to get more letters in their mailboxes.

So. I want to start a trend. Let's start writing more letters. Get out that stationary and those pens or pencils. It'll be good for you. It'll be good (and probably surprising) to your recipient.

I'm going to commit to writing one "real" letter a month. Are you with me?


  1. i'm sending several RAK a month and each one of them has a handwritten letter with it, i also send long letters to a friend of mine abroad ^^

    i love writing and receiving so even if i don't receive since i know the pleasure i have when i'm teh one receiving i'm giving in hope the receiver will have the same joy as me
