The Art of Snail Mail

I still believe in snail mail.  There is just something to be said for getting your mail and finding a card or a letter that someone has actually taken the time to do the following things.

  • Actually pick out an appropriate card for the occasion – the best are always the ‘just because’ kind
  • You realize that some people still know how to write cursive, or at least print and not type.
  • They bought a stamp
  • They mailed it to you

We do so much now by texting and email that its just nice to send/receive cards the old fashioned way.  I LOVE cards myself and while I am not great at sending them I do make an effort to do so.  I often have a large stack of them on hand for birthdays, weddings, new babies, thinking of you, thank you,  get well….they have a card for everything.  I actually saw a card once that was for a girls first bra – no lie.  It said something like ‘You are growing up so fast, on your way to becoming a woman’.  HAHAHAHA.  If you haven’t mailed a card in the last 6 months, go out and do it.  Make someones day, send it to someone who would least expect it.
