A letter is expectation sealed in an envelope, words thoughtfully penned and delivered in swooping handwriting. A missive that will undoubtedly be treasured by it’s recipient. Cheerful greetings, ardent thanks, sincere sympathy–any conversation on paper pleases me. And I just adore paper. Charming, beautifully designed stationery makes my heart swell.

I attempted to write a letter a day in two thousand and eleven (on pretty paper of course). And I made it through June. But then life got busy (excuses, excuses) and well, it didn’t go exactly as planned. BUT, I’m back. And while I may not be putting pen to paper *everyday*, I am sending letters again.
