I'll let you in on a secret: I love words.
These are words that make my heart flutter.
Words can bind two people in a marriage or break a heart. They can name a newborn child or drive someone to kill.
In 2018, we are accustomed to getting out our words out as quickly as possible. Then, we can edit & delete them.
That's why letters are so wonderful! (There I go using one of my favorite words.) Letters give the reader your uncensored thoughts, while showing them how much effort they're worth. I mean, how many times have you written a note since middle school?
I am new to this letter thing, but I'll give you one rule you have to follow: You Do You.
Want to use monogrammed cards? Go for it. More of a notebook paper gal (or guy)? Fold it up. Fan of cute quote cards from Target? Start writing. Your friends & family will undoubtely enjoy a letter that looks like you, just as they will love reading it.
Tell someone you thought of them during your walk to work, or thank them for their hospitality. Literally any excuse to write someone is a good one.
Trust me, you'll become the favorite friend fast with just a few stamps. :)
