Mail Time

Have you ever had that skip-down-the-sidewalk-singing-Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah feeling?  That happy, "I feel loved", "someone thought of me" feeling? That's kind of how I feel when I get real mail--not bills or circulars or dental appointment reminders, but actual hand-written, stuffed in an envelope, stamped and sealed-with-a-kiss mail. Packages are always welcome too. ;)

Getting a real letter is a splendid thing, isn't it? Good mail can make a good day better and kick a bad day square in the keister. Oh, how I love a newsy letter, a cheery card or even just a couple of heartfelt jotted lines!

My friend Tanya from Tanya's Stamps & Things  inspired me to take part in "A Month of Letters" after she wrote about it on her blog. I have cards. I have stamps. I am ready! For the next month, I will be sending out hand-written, heartfelt letters every mail delivery day. Maybe you'll find one in your mailbox. Maybe you'll even write back. 

Huzzah for handwritten letters!

Oh, and THIS.

I really do like to write letters, they are more personal than a call or a text. Beautiful handwritten notes show love.
