It’s been a long time since I sat down and wrote someone a letter on a regular basis. I used to when we lived in Maryland and Montana-especially when I was cooking up in the mountains and going to college.
But the last few years, since moving back to Wisconsin and being closer to my family, I stopped writing and relied on email and Facebook/twitter to correspond.
That was until this month. I’ve been participating in “A Month of Letters”. I had forgotten how wonderful it was to receive a handwritten note and how good writing someone else made me feel.
I ordered my first fountain pen and have been going a little crazy searching for fun/unique stationary and notecards. I’ve been writing three notes a day at times. I blame it on the fountain pen. 😛
Even as February draws to a close, I intend to keep writing and sending out letters. I’m really enjoying it and am so grateful for this little nudge to reconnect with friends, old and new and family once again.
