{Handwritten Letters}

Since I've been at college, I like to write little updates to friends or family whenever I have downtime. I just think it's a nice change from a quick text/email to have something tangible to hold. It's fun to use my favorite pens and cute notecards from Target, and to seal the envelope. I definitely  don't go all out with my stationary - I've just been using left-over cards from my graduation party and my favorite gel pens!

Of course, if I had some extra money I'd for SURE spend it on some cute stationary like this!
my favorite motto: simple is always better!
There's something refreshing about a handwritten letter compared to a typed email, and I think everyone can agree. With such a fast paced world where many people are wrapped up in social media (myself included), letters have a certain quality and sweetness to them. I mean, people take the time to read those birthday cards before they open the presents, right?
I also love decorating the envelope like I did for my friend Anna!
I actually just bought this box for 50 cents, but I can only imagine how cute the post cards were. And these are the pens I use -  the Pilot G2 brand that can be found at almost any store :)
Next time you have any extra time, think about writing to a family member, friend, or someone you haven't talked to in awhile to let them know you've been thinking of them...and maybe they just might write you back.

Love always,

Ps. I thought this article was cute in why handwritten letters are much, much better than any technology.
