INSTAGRAM wednesdays: PEN PALS

Earlier this year, I got a letter from my friend KAREN in the mail.  Her out of the blue letter reminded me how much I enjoy getting handwritten letters in the mail.  I suggested we start writing to each other via "snail mail" every once in awhile.  She thought that was a great idea.


Here's my first letter to my new PEN PAL.

  1. You should always write letters, simply because your handwriting is so gorgeous!

    1. I definitely agree, especially when they are out of the blue!

  3. I love getting letters, but my handwriting is so atrocious I don't think I could ever commit on a regular basis!

    1. Typing an e-mail is definitely easier. My hand always starts to hurt after I write for awhile!

    1. Me too. There's something timeless about it. Even though the Internet has completely changed the way we communicate with each other, a small note in the mail never gets old.

  5. This SO reminds me of high school. Remember how I LOVED your handwriting and had you write a page of something so I could copy it?! Good times. I still try to write like you sometimes. I'm always working on my handwriting!

    1. I remember that! Too funny. Ya, the interest in my handwriting has continued over the years. I'm a little self-conscious about it and really hope people don't think I try to write a certain way because in all honesty, I just write the way I write, you know? It's not for attention or anything. It's just my handwriting. :)

  6. That is so awesome! It seems no one really does snail mail anymore. We have an old family friend that sends us a hand written 4-5 page letter for Xmas and I look forward to it every year!

  9. I also love to get letters in the mail. I and my kids write to my grandma, and they have penpals in the kids of a friend of mine. Given, my four-year old just draws pictures and writes her name, but so does the little girl who returns her letters; they understand each other.

    Love your handwriting! Mine is horrific! However, I have taken to writing a lot on paper lately, and I have my beloved old callous back on the top of my finger. I must have always been doing something wrong to get it, but it is mine and makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something.

  10. I've been having a lot of fun writing real letters to people this year. It's such a cool surprise to come home to something besides bills and sales fliers.

  11. Handwriting is a lost art. I love your friend's penmanship--cute, quirky, and smart!

    1. Thanks Michelle! That's my handwriting. I took a pic of it before I sent my letter. :(
