There’s something about snail mail that just makes me one of the happiest people. It’s a little one-of-a-kind gift in the mailbox intended to brighten someone’s day, and the only thing that makes me happier than receiving something fun in the mail is sending it. Communication today is pretty easy. You stare at your computer screen and type up an email or text someone back on your smartphone. I’m glad we have that technology, of course, and I use it all the time. But it makes physical messages like letters and postcards that have traveled that distance extra special. Continue sending “life update” emails and “I love you” texts, but take the time to get back in touch with old-school communication. It’s not only super awesome for the person receiving your note, but it’ll make you feel amazing, too.
If you’re looking for a little inspiration, you’ve got it right here. Now mail to your little heart’s content!
* Get some postcards from a favorite local attraction (like the Botanical Gardens or a quirky tourist spot), write about your day there, and mail to an old friend
* Sign up for Postcrossing, where you’ll get to send and receive postcards from strangers all around the world. The more you send the more you receive!
* Mail a love letter, and sign off with a kiss (red lipstick mandatory, you minx).
