Snail Mail - Making New Friends and Filling My Mail Box

Do you love mail?  I am not talking about email or even texts but physical mail that comes to your mail box - you know the one outside!  Well, if you know me - you know I love mail.  And starting last month I joined a Blog Pals Snail Mail Program started by Michelle and Christianna.   It has only just begun and I am having a lot of fun with it.

 

I was matched with Laurie over at The Brotherton's.  Please, please check out her blog - you won't regret it.  I love her sense of style and zeal for life!  It was a bit difficult to decide what to send Laurie (after all, first impressions are big).  I ended up settling on a cute card, a small Chick-fil-A gift card (everyone loves Chick-fil-A), and the kiddos picked out some smiley stickers.  This month Laurie will write me back so it will be fun to continue our friendship and I will continue to read her blog.  And I received a nice note from April


 

It made my day when I checked my mail and found something more personal.  And of course the mystery of figuring out who April was and then it dawned on me - she was my blog pal :). 


I look forward to getting to know these ladies better and meeting new friends!

I don't care what they invent digitally, nothing will replace the texture and feel of a beautifully made card and a hand written note!! Love the detail in that card!!

Thanks for commenting on the Aloha Friday Blog Hop in the last month or so. Just getting back to everyone who commented now!!

Have a lovely week!

Aloha,
