Pulling a goodie from the archives for this one- but it is topical for me at this point too: I love getting snail mail. A thoughtful letter is a such a sweet gesture!
Since recently moving away from my close friends, I've started writing letters (letters! on paper! with stamps!) to them, versus emails/Facebook. I love the leisurely practice of sitting down at the table with a cup of coffee, writing on paper, cool stationery, the whole process. I've been trying to get the kids to write their Wisconsin friends & relatives too, both for the writing practice & the thrill of getting a response.
Plus, it's so nice to get mail that's not a bill, isn't it?
