In this digital age, we don’t receive much snail mail anymore. Don’t get me wrong, texts and emails are wonderful and speedy, but they are not as enduring and lovely as a handwritten letter on pretty stationary that you can hold and keep forever. AND I TERRIBLY MISS IT!
Imagine the excitement I felt upon receiving my very first letter from Isabelle, a travel who writes about her adventures around the world.

Old Fashioned Mail Still Has Meaning
When I was a kid, there was nothing more exciting than receiving mail. Birthdays would come around, and the family out of town would send cards and it was the best feeling. Someone took the time to actually: 1) buy a card, 2) write something nice and, 3) go somewhere to actually mail it!
