Enjoying old fashioned letter writing

Posted by on July 23, 2015 at 10:23 am.

You know… tomorrow will mark a month that I made a commitment to send my BF at least one handwritten letter weekly.

Guess what? I’ve far exceeded that amount! There have been some weeks when he has received three letters! Yes, I’m very proud of myself. It’s also given me a chance to brush up on my card making skills since every single note I’ve written has been on a hand crafted card that I’ve made.

Stamping - Snail Card

Check out the above card. It’s something I made last evening. I thought that I should add something else to the card, but I was being lazy and so the snail is debuting solo. It’s obvious that I did not spend too much time creating this card, but I still like how it turned out.

Originally this was just a card I was going to toss onto my “blank card pile,” but this morning (after receiving a text from the BF wishing me good I Love Youmorning) I decided to drop him a quick note.

I still think that old fashioned letter writing for those who are courting (or anyone really) is awesome! I must say I love receiving letters from the BF and his notes have been designated to their very own BF letter box.

Will I keep handwriting my old fashioned letters and send them off through the postal mail? You better believe it! The BF has kept every single letter that I’ve written so he’s definitely worthy of my time and effort to make and write handwritten letters.

    Love letters straight…from the heart! Ooooo…how sweet! Keeping all of them, all tied up with a pretty ribbon.

    Now why would you have to write to him? You don’t live at the same place, different cities?

    @suituapui, We live about an hour from each other. Even if we lived closer, I would have suggested that too because of the effort it takes to take those moments to sit down and physically write a letter. It’s much easier to send off a text or email. However, I enjoy the simpler forms of communication a good old fashioned letter.

    The fact that he takes the time to write me a handwritten letter when he could text, email or call (we do all of those things too) makes it more special. Also, there’s something unique about the handwriting of each person. It’s much more intimate than typed text.

    I do the same for my daughter. I send her letters through the postal mail, and we live in the same house!

    I’m glad that you and I are writing to each other, too! I think letter writing thru postal mail will be a lost art at some point and that is sad. I love your snail – it’s cute!

    Thanks @Jennifer!

    You might be right and that makes me sad. πŸ™ Last evening, I received some House Mouse stamps, so you should be getting a letter some time this week. I made three cards last night and my daughter made a few also.
