Snail Mailing… 💌

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love receiving mail. Like real mail. You know, the kind where you write a letter, put it in an envelope, put a stamp on, and put it in the mailbox to be sent off? Yeah, that kind of mail. There’s something so deliciously old fashioned and nostalgic about it, just like whenever you read Anne of Green Gables.

There is also something really nice about being the one to send the letter. I used to do it all the time when I was younger, seeing as I had two penpals and would write random letters to my family members. But as I grew older, I just stopped. I didn’t stay in touch with my penpals and those letters asking about how my cousin’s life was going suddenly stopped. There wasn’t anything that triggered it. It was kinda just a gradual falling away.

But thank God that it didn’t stay that way. Recently I have rekindled my love for writing letters, and to celebrate it, I went and bought myself some super cute stationary. (you don’t have to buy cute stationery, but like… I really wanted to have some crisp new paper and envelopes.

My best friend and I actually just started pen-palling, and it has been so much fun sending letters back and forth even though we live literally five minutes away from each other. It gives us something creative and amusing to do instead of being on our phones all the time. We are able to talk about all the things that you can normally talk about, but they are five billion times more fun cause it is in a letter. There is something so deliciously old-timey and nostalgic about it, and I’m totally here for it.

So, what was the point of this post? I don’t really know XD… I just thought it would be fun to blog about writing letters, cause it’s really fun and all of you should get a penpal too hehe. Comment below if you have a penpal, and, if you do, what is one fun thing you always do in your letters. Thanks for reading!

Byeeeee! Xoxoxoxo

  1. Another Hannah who loves Shannon Hale and snail mail! 😀 So glad I stumbled on your blog! I absolutely love writing letters, too, and half the fun is the beautiful stationery. Sadly, where I live (South Africa), our postal service is so ridiculously terrible that I’ve all but stopped sending letters in the post :/
