Letters are Forever

My dear friend, Lindsay, surprised me this week with some sweet snail mail. It wasn't anything that required a box or a bow; it probably only took her about 5 minutes and 50 cents. She simply said she was thankful for our friendship, but getting that fun little letter in the mail was the highlight of my day.

It's really amazing how much a teensy sacrifice (5 minutes!) can mean to another person. Lindsay's letter didn't say anything earth-shattering or groundbreaking, but it was note-worthy. She reminded me that I should make a point to start writing some letters, myself! Ink on paper adds an extra-special touch to a message by making the communication more intentional.

Lindsay could have told me she was thankful for our friendship via text, Facebook, email, Skype, or Twitter, but letters are forever. Love you, Linds!

P.S. Is this blog post forever?
P.P.S. Nick Warnock let me borrow his 50mm prime lens for this post, and I'm enjoying learning how it works!


  1. Haha that little PS was a great touch to this. So true though, I love writing and receiving postcards when traveling, it's better than buying little souvenirs that sit on shelves after and are never used!

    1. Katia, you are so right! I always feel like I'm too busy when traveling to send postcards, but I need to make it a priority next time. They're so special!

  2. Such a cute and insightful post- and so true! I can't remember the last time I wrote a note/letter to anyone- really must do it more! Wait- unless a post-it note to myself counts...?

  3. So true! I have friends that randomly send me little notes in the mail and it always completely makes my day!

  4. what a great post! I don't remember the last time I sent a letter just because, I always sent physical thank you notes though
