National Letter Writing Day


Dear Reader,

It has been so long since we wrote, but we are taking the time to write because it’s National Letter Writing Day on December 7!

With the advent of smartphones and the internet, letter writing has been on the decline! For hundreds of years, it was the only way people who were separated by distance could contact one another. This week is a great time to get back to the basics and handwrite a letter. Sitting for half an hour to handwrite something to someone special is life-giving. We miss it. Don’t you? Write back soon.
